The sun is finally here and the temperatures are all mild. A good reason to take advantage of it by going on a trip to Europe or even in France. But where to go in June? Here are some travel ideas to help you recharge your batteries!
Where to go in June to bask in the sun
The French Riviera in June is a good plan. The flood of summer visitors has not yet landed on the coast and the prices of hotels and restaurants are much more affordable than in July/August. And, above all, you can already swim in most of the seaside resorts in the region, the water is hardly cooler than in the middle of summer. The beaches of Bandol, Juan-les-Pins, Porquerolles or Hyères are yours... A little lazy time away from the crowds on the French Riviera is a dream come true at this time of year.
To enjoy the sunshine at low prices, we also recommend the Algarve in Portugal in June. The weather is already nice and warm there, and you will also be in low season. If you like large sandy beaches, direction Portimao. You will find a large number of luxury hotels at soft prices by the sea. But if you dream of wilder beaches and creeks, we recommend you rather the coast from Faro to Lagos, where you will sleep in charming hotels or Bed & Breakfast for really reasonable rates.
In the south of Europe, Greece is also a choice destination to enjoy the sun at low prices. We recommend the island of Patmos. Less touristy than the other Greek islands, it still offers beaches and landscapes far from the crowds. It is the "bohemian chic" island par excellence and will seduce lovers of off-the-beaten-track seaside tourism who are looking for authenticity and contact with locals.
Where to go in June to discover the great outdoors!
To get a fresh start in June, a big breath of fresh air in the great outdoors is always welcome.
Madagascar is a dream destination for nature lovers! From the great arid spaces of the south to the tropical forests of the north, this country offers sublime landscapes and diversified fauna. To the east, the tropical forests of Andasibe are home to a multitude of chameleons and lemurs, including the Indri, the most imposing of all. And from June to September is the season for humpback whales that migrate to Madagascar to reproduce. You can easily leave to observe them aboard a boat and it's magical!
In Austria, the destination is Lech Zürs am Arlberg! Situated at an altitude of 1,450 m, this mythical resort offers lush greenery from June onwards. Flowery meadows, high mountains, emerald lakes and dreamy panoramas await visitors to Lech Zürs am Arlberg. The charming family villages of Stuben am Arlberg and Klösterle at the foot of the Arlberg are also part of this region and are a charming stopover.
Further north, Norway is a superb destination for nature lovers, mainly thanks to its fjords. Undisputed symbols of the country, the fjords are mostly located in the West. These ancient glacial valleys covered by the sea can be visited aboard a small ferry boat. You will be fascinated by these steep cliffs that flow into the transparent water. The largest fjord is Sognefjord, which stretches inland for 200 km. A magical spectacle. And good news, in June, the days are really long, it is the month of the midnight sun in the Nordic countries so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the sublime Norwegian nature.
Where to go in June to take a city break to decompress
June is the right time to go to Lithuania, not only for the pleasant climate in June, but especially for the cultural night in Vilnius!
