The best time to visit Europe
It’s rather surprising that the world’s smallest continent has enough wonders in it for Christopher Marlowe to describe it as ‘infinite riches in a small room’. From the glamour of Paris to the history of Rome to the mysteries of the German black forest to the snow-covered Swiss Alps…Europe is a cornucopia of delights. Going on a euro tour is the dream of any traveler. Though all seasons are great for visiting Europe, it helps to know about the climate and weather patterns.
Weather in Europe
Europe falls in the temperate climatic zone and has mild warm weather especially if it’s compared to other places in similar latitude belts. The warm climate of Europe is due to the presence of the Gulf Stream that endows European shore with warm coastal waters and heats up the cold Atlantic winds that blow across the European continent. With the exception of Finland, Iceland, etc., the climate in Europe is pleasant and cool and not ragingly cold. There is a lot of climate diversity across Europe and you will find Marine climate in central and northern France along with the UK and Germany. Italy, Spain and southern France have a Mediterranean climate while Switzerland has a highland climate. Southern Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey also have a Mediterranean climate.
Best time for a family experience
In case you enjoy sunbathing and dipping in the sea as a holiday activity then the best time to visit Europe is from June to September. In May and June, the water temperatures are cooler but it’s still a great time to go. Late September sees beautiful weather and warm waters too so that’s another nice time for a family experience. In continental Europe, you will get great weather from mid-May to mid-September. In northern Europe, the best time for a family experience are usually the months of July and August.
Best skiing time in Europe
Most of the ski resorts in Europe open in late November and close down by mid-April. Try to go when the skiing season starts as the snow will be plentiful. On the other hand for availing the best deals on tickets and hotel prices go in January. Christmas, New Year and Easter are expensive times for skiing so are avoidable if you want to cut costs.
Visiting Europe in peak season
June and August are mostly high seasons in Europe …you will generally have the advantage of long days with the sun setting around 9.30 p.m. as a rule north will have nicer weather in the summers than South and the Mediterranean belt.
