Spain – What to Pack – Clothing and Supplies Tips

Spain What to Pack

Have you ever been on vacation and wished you had brought along something that you did not even consider bringing? Knowing what items to pack can make your vacation a more pleasant one. If you are planning a visit to Spain, what to pack is probably a question you are facing. Here are a few of must-pack items for your trip.


No matter what you have planned for your Spanish adventure, these luggage options are ideal for a short or long-term stay.

Appropriate Clothing

Spain is known for its pronounced seasonal variations. When it is winter, it is cold. When it is summer, it is hot. Always pack the appropriate clothing based on the season you are traveling in so you can stay at a comfortable body temperature. In the winter, you will want a warm winter coat and warm clothing, as temperatures can dip to below freezing. In the summer, temperatures can get as hot as 87 degrees, so pack lightweight, breathable clothing.

Clothes to Pack

Comfortable Shoes

Barcelona and Porto have serious cobblestone. It may not seem like a huge deal, but when you are walking over it for hours, your feet begin to hurt. When you are packing for your trip to Spain, be sure to wear comfortable shoes that are well-padded and have plenty of arch support. Your feet will thank you.

Protective Lotions

As you pack for your Spain trip, be sure that you remember to pack protective lotions. This includes both insect repellant and sunscreen. If you are hiking in Spain, there are many bugs nearby. Mosquitoes are also prevalent by the water at night. Using buy spray helps to protect you from these pests. And the sun can cause you to quickly sunburn, even when it is not very sunny out. Always wear sunscreen when in Spain.

Toiletries to Pack

Backpack and Backpack Protector

The last items that you will want to pack for your Spain trip are a backpack and backpack protector. A backpack is convenient. It allows you to store the items you will need as you run around the city or even stay overnight in different cities. They are also small enough to fit in a city locker if you need to store the pack for the day. However, your bag can be exposed to a lot of wear and tear while being transported via plane, being stored in lockers and being exposed to rain. A backpack protector helps to strengthen the fibers and repel water.
