Route over the Pyrenees in winter

Hi WS bods. I’m cycling from Barcelona back to the UK. Can anyone recommend which (if any) of the passes over the Pyrenees will be open and most fun (and safe) to ride in January? 

I probably have to choose a coast and go around but I’m not adverse to climbing if the routes are passable

thanks :)

AFAIK - Andorra is open year

AFAIK - Andorra is open year round - except if it has just snowed.

Which pass did you finally take, Rob?

I'm heading back home (Spain) in April.

Though it's not the coldest time of year, I have no clue as to which passes are better, with less traffic,...?  I was thinking maybe following the Pilgrims' Way of Santiago?
