Spain is a country that offers great variety, even when it comes to the weather.

 

The following are descriptions of typical weather in Spain throughout the 4 seasons.

 

WINTERDec through mid-March

 Andalusia offers the mildest weather in the winter.  For the rest of the country December to mid-March you should expect to wear a coat. The higher altitude cities such as Madrid, Toledo, Leon, and Salamanca and the countryside around these cities will be cold. However, in Madrid it is not uncommon to get a spell of milder weather in January or February which allows you to enjoy the sidewalk cafes and people watch at one of the many terrazas! It is the perfect time to visit the great cities; as there are fewer tourists and  most airlines offer lower rates.
Perhaps a ski adventure or a cross country week is on your agenda for 2014.

SPRING: mid-March through May

Spring is one of the most pleasant times of the year to visit Spain. Daylight lingers and the temperatures are wonderful with warm days and cooler nights. Air fares are still reasonable and there are still less crowds. Hiking through meadows and biking on winding back roads make for the perfect Spain Adventure. There are many feasts during March and April adding to the local color and the warm weather brings the countryside back to life!

 

SUMMER: June through August

Now is the time to head North! It tends to be very hot in the South of Spain, which lends itself to great beach days and sitting on the coast at sunset. If sand and sun is your plan in Spain, then let us take you to the “hot” spots of summer. If hiking or biking the Camino de Santiago or, walking the Picos de Europa, or The Pyrenees is what you’ve always wanted to do, then this is the time to go. This is the perfect season to hike or bike in the north of Spain.

 

AUTUMN: September through December

Like spring, autumn is an excellent time for a Spain Adventures tour. The hot summer months are over and there are also plenty of cultural activities to enjoy whether you choose the north or the south of Spain. Late autumn brings the risk of some rain, but it rarely causes us to stop our scheduled activities. Autumn is the perfect time to plan trips in the wine regions of Spain as it is the harvest of the grapes and any tour that takes you through vineyards is sure to impress any wine enthusiast.
