Gear to Bring


April weather on Gibraltar is unpredictable and often cold, so check the weather forecast and dress accordingly in clothes that can get dirty. If it rains, we’ll still be working, which makes rain gear a must. Meals will be provided, but be sure to bring bedding, towels and toiletries. Rooms may not be heated.
