Amalfi Coast, Italy

By Isabelle from Cultured Voyages

Amongst some of the most iconic seaside regions in the world, the Amalfi Coast has been attracting the rich and famous since Ancient Roman times – and those mere mortals who wish to bask in its glorious, scenic delights. Located on the western coast of Italy, its colorful hillside towns overlook the shimmering Thyrennian Sea, an arm of the Mediterranean Sea. 

While the shoulder seasons of late spring and early autumn offer less crowds (with slightly lower temperatures), the Amalfi Coast is a place to see and be seen, with things really starting to kick off in June when beach season will be in full swing. 

The perfect way to soak up the Amalfi Coast summer vibes is to head to a beach club, or lido. Take the boat from Positano to Da Adolfo, an institution that is set in a tiny cove, where you can sunbathe, dine and people-watch to your heart’s content.

If you fancy glamming it up a little more and don’t mind the journey, take a ferry to the beautiful island of Capri and pay a visit to La Fontelina. This is one of the more popular destinations so make sure to book your sunbeds months in advance for the busy summer season. 

Another way to enjoy the Amalfi Coast in June is to rent a boat or book a boat cruise for the day. You can glide from from town to town along the coast at your own pace and dip your toes in the sea when you feel the need to cool off.

Once you have your fill of beach-orientated activities, there is always the incredibly scenic Path of the Gods to hike. Make sure you go early in the day to avoid higher midday temperatures. 


You can expect temperatures of around 80°F, which rarely drop below 70°F, together with long days of sunshine. There will barely be any rain and only around 8 days of humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The closest airport to the Amalfi Coast is Naples, from which you will have to arrange a direct transfer, or take a combination of trains, buses and/or ferries to reach your final destination. The best way to travel is by ferry if you can, as it skips the often manic traffic along the roads.

Next best would be to take a train from Naples to either Sorrento or Salento, and then make your way from there. 

Hotel Recommendation

Isabelle says, “Hotel Villa Rosa in Positano is a stylish choice, offering close proximity to the beach as well as some gorgeous views of the town and coast.”

Stockholm, Sweden

By Jack & Abbie

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and home to a population of around 1.6 million people. It is also one of the best cities to visit in June in Europe. The weather is very pleasant and there are many things to do in the city. In order to best experience it, try and spend at least 3 days in Stockholm.

One of the most popular things to do is to take a tour of Skansen which is the oldest open-air museum in the world. You’ll find plenty of places to visit including the Baltic Science Centre, Skansen Aquarium, and Stockholm Zoo. 

During your time in the city, you’ll also want to take a day trip and cruise Stockholm Archipelago. There are around 30,000 islands surrounding the city, and if you head out on a cruise you’ll get to see the area’s true natural beauty.

Don’t forget to explore Gamla Stan which is the old town. You’ll find beautiful coloured houses, charming cafes, and popular attractions like the Royal Palace. The night life, including some amazing roof top bars with stunning views, is also amazing.

The “National day of Sweden” takes place on the 6th of June. There will be plenty of special events and you’ll find live music and food venders in some of the parks.


June is one of the best times to visit the city as the weather is very pleasant. Temperatures range between 53°F-79°F (12°C-26°C), so there’s quite a variation but generally, it hovers around 66°F (19°C). You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 7 days.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The closest airport is Stockholm Arlanda which is just 39 km (24 miles) from the city centre and can be accessed by bus or the Arlanda Express, the airport rail link. 

Hotel Recommendation

Jack & Abbie say, “Stockholm is full of fantastic places to stay, but if you’re travelling on a budget then STF Rygerfjord Hotel & Hostel is a great option. You’ll be staying on a ship that’s docked in Lake Mälaren, and will have access to a shared kitchen, an on-site restaurant, and a lounge area.”

Bordeaux, France (Photo courtesy of Pixabay)

Bordeaux, France

By Natali from She’s Abroad Again

If the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Bordeaux is wine, then you should visit the city of Bordeaux in Southwest France. This spectacular Unesco World Heritage Site is hardly a hidden gem anymore. In fact, it is quickly becoming the most popular city in France, and there is so much more than just wine to discover!

The best way to explore Bordeaux is by walking, as the city centre is compact and walkable. Start your sightseeing tour from Place de Qinqonces, one of the largest squares in Europe. Go along the Garrone and see the reflection of Place de la Bourse in Miroir d’eau. This reflecting pool is a recent addition to the popular attractions of Bordeaux. Come inside the maze of cobblestone streets that is the city centre of Bordeaux through 15th century Porte Cailhau. There is history everywhere you look.

It would be a shame to come all the way to Bordeaux and not explore the rest of the Gironde region. Some of the best day trips from Bordeaux are St. Emilion and Arcachon.

Book a tour to St. Emilion, a charming medieval village surrounded by vineyards. It is a must-visit for every wine lover since you can try wine directly from the Chateaux.

Another option is Arcachon, the town close to Dune de Pilat, and the largest natural sand dune in Europe! 

June is the best time to visit Bordeaux, and as the weather gets warmer in June, you might even try swimming in the Atlantic ocean. If you are a wine lover, Bordeaux wine week is in June as well!


In June, Bordeaux average high is around 77°F and its’ average low 57°F. You can expect around 1.7 inches of rain over 7 days.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Bordeaux has an international airport, so it is easy to fly directly. Alternatively, you can reach Bordeaux in less than 3 hours by train from Paris.

Hotel Recommendation

Natali says, “The best area to stay in Bordeaux is Chartrons and around the Jardin Public. You are close enough that you are in the city centre in 10 minutes, but far enough to make it a quiet and safe neighbourhood.”

best European countries to visit in June
Vik, Iceland (Photo courtesy of Jessica from Uprooted Traveler)

Vik, Iceland

By Jessica from Uprooted Traveler

If you head to Vik in June, along Iceland’s Southern coast, you’ll be treated to the famed Midnight Sun (when the sun appears at midnight), nesting puffins, and lots of wildflowers, like lupines, blooming on its rolling green hills. It is one of the best June vacation destinations in Europe.

One of the best things to do is explore Vik’s most famous attraction, Reynisfjara Beach. With its black sand, columnar basalt cliffs and craggy sea stacks, it’s no surprise that this jaw-dropping beach has been used as a shooting location for Game of Thrones, in addition to several other films and television shows. Be sure to keep a lookout on the cliffs for Puffins. This is one of the best times of year and one of the best places in the country to see these adorable clowns of the sea.

For a bit more of an offbeat adventure, consider hiking to the plane wreck on Sólheimasandur, an eerie skeleton of a US Navy plane that crashed in 1973 (with no casualties!) along a black sand plain just outside of Vik. The abandoned shell has a hauntingly beautiful quality and is a favorite amongst photographers.

Alternatively, strap on those crampons and take tour to Katla Ice Cave, one of the only ice caves in Iceland that is open year round. The cave is a stunning mixture of ancient blue ice from the nearby glaciers and pitch black ash from centuries of volcanic eruptions. 


Expect average high temperatures to be around 58 degrees Fahrenheit dropping down to low 40s in the evening. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 9 days so be sure to include a solid raincoat on your Iceland packing list

Best Way To Reach Destination

To reach Vik and its dramatic coastline, fly into Keflavik Airport near the capital city of Reyjavik, collect your rental car, and make the three hour drive southeast along the famed Ring Road.

Hotel Recommendation

Jessica says, “While you’re enjoying Vik’s nature, consider making Hotel Vík í Mýrdal your homebase, which expertly mixes cozy vibes in an incredibly modern building.”

Marbella, Spain

By Cristina from My Little World Of Travelling

Located in Costa del Sol, in Southern Spain, Marbella is one of the best places for a June holiday in Europe because it is warm and won’t be as crowded as July and August. In addition, you will find cheaper flights and accommodation in June compared to the later summer months.

There are plenty of things to do in Marbella and its surroundings, so no matter what type of traveller you are, you will find something for yourself.

One of the best things to do in Marbella is to explore its Old Town, home to beautiful whitewashed buildings, narrow streets and monuments. Here you can wander its lovely streets, visit La Encarnación Church or head to Plaza de Los Naranjos (Orange Square) for a meal.

While visiting Marbella, you will also want to visit Puerto Banús, the most luxurious port in Spain. Window shop, see the expensive yachts or treat yourself to a nice meal. 

If you are keen to explore, you are uniquely located to book tours and take day trips to Morocco, the Rock of Gibraltar, and other amazing places in the Costa Del Sol like Ronda.

Last but not least, whether you love beach parties or just sunbathing, visit one of the many beautiful beaches in Marbella. 


If you visit Marbella in June, you will enjoy warm temperatures of 81ºF during the day and around 64ºF in the evenings. There is practically be no rain or humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

To reach Marbella, you need to fly to Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport and get the bus, book a taxi or hire a car. The journey from the airport to Marbella is about 45 minutes if you take the toll road. 

Hotel Recommendation

Cristina says, “If you are looking for accommodation, Linda Boutique Hotel is a great option as it is in the old town and offers beautiful and comfortable rooms.”

best European cities to visit in June
Prague, Czech Republic (Photo courtesy of Charu from Travel With CG)

Prague, Czech Republic

By Charu from Travel With CG

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a fantastic June city break in Europe. Boasting medieval buildings, romantic churches, cobblestone streets, and orange topped roofs, it is a charming city with plenty to offer.

Begin your time in Prague by strolling around the Old Town Square to get a feel for the city. This neighborhood of Prague is always buzzing with people as it is close to popular landmarks, restaurants, and shops. Many Prague walking tours also start here, so make sure you join one to get acquainted to the city with the help of a local.

Next, head to the Prague Astronomical clock, which is attached to the southern side of the Old Town Hall. Other than witnessing the procession of the Twelve Apostles when the clock chimes every hour, you can also head to the top of the tower to get an unobstructed view of the Old Town Square.

Another unmissable spot in Prague is Prague Castle. Located on a hill on the other side of the Vltava river, it is the official seat of the president of the Czech Republic. The castle complex is massive with lots to see, so expect to spend 3-4 hours exploring. Some notable sights include St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, and Golden Lane. Make sure you purchase advanced tickets to skip the line.

Lastly, no trip to Prague is complete without visiting Charles Bridge at sunset. Providing beautiful views of Prague Castle on one side and the Old Town on the other, this medieval bridge is magical. To get another perspective, climb any of the two towers on either side of the bridge.

Prague in summer transforms into a giant beer garden, and you will find many pop-ups serving beer around the city in June. Head to Letna park, one of the highest viewpoints in Prague, and spend your afternoons enjoying a pint or two with a beautiful view. If you are keen to experience your beer another way (like soaking in warm beer hops), consider doing a Beer Spa.

For other fascinating and fun things to do in Prague from the perspective of a local, please see Prague: An Epic Three Day Itinerary.


The average temperature in June is typically 72 F during the day and 64 F in the evening. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 10 days and no humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The Václav Havel Airport in Prague is well-connected with most cities globally. Once there, you can take an uber, bus or subway to the city center. Avoid taxis as they often do not take you on the most direct route to your hotel.

Hotel Recommendation

Charu says, “The Radisson Blu Hotel near Wenceslas Square is a great place to base yourself in Prague. Get more details for planning your trip in this Prague guide.”

Ring of Kerry (Killarney), Ireland (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)

Ring of Kerry – Killarney, Ireland

By Janelle from Make The Trip Matter

June is one of the best times to visit Ireland, and it’s especially great to visit the popular Ring of Kerry. It finally starts to warm up (though it never gets too hot in Ireland) so that you can explore all the gorgeous sites of this area.

The Ring of Kerry is a 111 miles (179 km) long, circular scenic drive around the gorgeous Iveragh Peninsula that takes you through incredible coastal landscapes, magnificent views, and adorable rural seaside villages. It’s best to drive or take a guided car or bus tour through the Ring of Kerry as there are plenty of stops and attractions you will not want to miss along the way.

Visitors love to stop for walks and hikes, especially throughout the Killarney National Forest where you can also book a boat tour, or canoe or kayak on the Lakes of Killarney. The Torc Waterfall is one of the more popular hikes. A relatively steep climb up a set of steps gives you the best view of the 65 ft or 20m cascade.

One of the most popular attractions in the Ring of Kerry is the Muckross Estate. Built in 1843 and sitting on 1,300 acres of beautiful land, the Muckross Estate is full of Irish history and quite majestic to behold. You can tour the house, garden, abbey, and traditional farm onsite.

The busiest tourist months are July and August, so you’ll get great weather with fewer crowds in June. And if you’re into motorcycles… the Ireland BikeFest rolls through County Kerry at the start of June. 


In June, temperatures in the Ring of Kerry range from an average low of 50°F (10°C) to a high of 62°F (16°C). The temperatures are very pleasant during the day, though you can expect around 2.4 inches of rain on average over 10 days.

Best Way To Reach Destination

To reach the Ring of Kerry, you will start in Killarney. Ideally, you would fly into Cork Airport which is 1.5 hours away by bus, car, or train. Alternatively, fly into Dublin and transfer to a domestic flight to Kerry Airport which is a simple 20-minute drive from Killarney.

If you have a couple extra days, consider exploring some cool Dublin activities.

If you are renting a car to drive the Ring of Kerry, it’s a 3.5-hour drive from Dublin. Buses will take 6-6.5 hours and trains 3.5-4 hours.

Hotel Recommendation

Janelle says, “For easy access to the Ring of Kerry, you should search for accommodation in Killarney. Bed and Breakfast stays are popular in western Ireland, and there are plenty of 5-star accommodations such as the Muckross Park Hotel and Spa. For a truly unique and exceptional visit to the Kerry region, consider staying in an Irish castle hotel!”

June is best time to visit Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

By Reshma from The Solo Globetrotter

If you are looking for a beautiful European city escape for a June getaway packed with stunning architecture, rich history, and the best nightlife, which is also safe and cheap to explore, then Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is the perfect fit.

Whether you want to spend a weekend in Budapest or more, the city is one of the best places in Europe for a summer holiday. It offers pleasant weather and many international music concerts and carnivals in June. In addition, there are tons of amazing things to do in Budapest, so be prepared for a lot of walking.

Start your trip by checking out Buda and Pest, two different parts of Budapest on either side of the Danube River. A guided walking tour is the best way to explore the famous landmarks. Check out the splendid Buda castle, Fisherman’s Bastion, and Szenchenyi Chain bridge, which are the central pieces of Budapest’s rich medieval history.

To get to know the modern city, head to the Central Market Hall and take a tour of the iconic Parliament building. If you want to taste the local beer and food, Vaci street and downtown are the top spots to go. 

Admire the city’s grand treasures by hopping on a boat cruise in the evening, especially with your partner, as it is one of Budapest’s most romantic things to do.

Wind up a packed day by enjoying a relaxing sauna at the famous thermal bath, Szenchenyi


In June, the temperature in Budapest ranges between 58°F to 78°F. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 8 days and no humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Budapest is well connected by road, rail and flights from all major European cities. Local trains are available from cities in neighbouring countries. For example, you can reach Budapest within 3 hours by train from Vienna, Bratislava, or Slovakia.

Hotel Recommendation

Reshma says, “The best place to stay in Budapest, if you do not mind spending a bit, is the Corinthia, a luxurious hotel in a medieval building in the city centre.”

June is great time to visit Madeira in Europe

Madeira, Portugal

By Joanna from The World In My Pocket

Madeira is a wonderful island off the coast of Morocco, in the Atlantic Ocean. The island belongs to Portugal and has always been described as the “Hawaii of Europe” or the “Pearl of the Atlantic Ocean” because of its dramatic scenery.

June is a perfect time to visit Madeira with its pleasant summer temperatures. The island caters mostly to adventurous travellers who don’t really want to spend their holiday sunbathing every day. In fact, Madeira doesn’t have sandy beaches, except for the volcanic beach of Seixal, which has soft black sand.

One of the most exciting things to do in Madeira is watch the sunrise from Pico do Arieiro, the third highest peak on the island. Most mornings in June the clouds will form below the viewing platform, which make the sunrise spectacular. After watching the sunrise, you can start hiking to Pico Ruivo, the highest peak in Madeira. 

Another great thing to do in Madeira is to enjoy a day at the volcanic natural pools of Porto Moniz. The pools are filled with ocean water by the waves that break at the far end of the stones.

The old town of Funchal is a fabulous place to explore as well. You will find buildings from the first time Madeira was colonised, back in the 15th century.

The old town is also an art project with over 200 doors which have been painted by local artists to revive the area. Santa Maria street, which cuts the old town in half, is the place to go if you want to taste some traditional Madeiran food at a restaurant with character. Alternatively, take a food tour and let a local guide you to the best food in town.


On the coastal regions of Madeira, you will find pleasant temperatures averaging around 77 degrees Fahrenheit. As the island has its own microclimates, the temperature varies from the coastal town of Funchal to the top of the mountains where it’s still quite cold.

Whilst in the mountains you can get plenty of clouds, whereas Funchal usually stays sunny all day long.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Madeira Airport is 11 miles from Funchal.

Hotel Recommendation

Joanna says, “The best place to stay in Madeira is Funchal, which is divided into the old town and the hotel area. A good place to stay at is VidaMar Resort in the hotel area, or Hotel Madeira in the old town.”

best european cities to visit in June
Vienna, Austria (Photo courtesy of Pixabay)

Vienna, Austria

By Paul from Paul Marina

Vienna was called the pearl of Europe at its height over a hundred years ago. Today, the Austrian capital is a beautiful reminder of the Belle Époque, with its old-time flair and stunning architecture.

Vienna has so much to offer visitors. St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the city center make for a good starting point. People from all over the world converge here to shop on Kärtnerstrasse, a pedestrian zone, and the road leading to the Hofburg Palace.

Take a Fiaker horse carriage ride to explore the city and its hidden places, or pick a museum of your interest. Some of the most well-known museums in the world call Vienna their home, including the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts), Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum), Albertina Museum (Art Gallery). You can explore two Baroque palaces at Belvedere Palace.

The oldest amusement park, the Prater, should also be on your bucket list if you love a fun night out with family and friends. If you are traveling with kids, don’t miss the world’s oldest Zoo.

Located nearby is the Schönbrunn Palace, the former residency of the late empress Maria Theresa of Habsburg. The gardens are especially beautiful in June with colorful flowers and bushes set up in geometrical order.

It is one of the best June trips in Europe if you want to avoid the summer vacation crowds and the intense summer heat. In addition, the largest free open air music festival is traditionally held every June on Danube Island.


The best time to visit Vienna is June because the temperatures are pleasant and range from 60 to 80 Fahrenheit. You can expect around 2.3 inches of rain over 9 days. The Austrian capital is known to be a bit windy all year round.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The Vienna airport is situated about 30 minutes from the city center. Trains, special regional trains, trams, and buses frequently depart from the airport to the city center.

Hotel Recommendation

Paul says, “The best place to stay for an average budget are the Austrian Trend hotels, they have something for everyone located at different areas in Vienna.”

best beaches in Europe in June
Cornwall, England (Photo courtesy of Conversant Traveller)

Cornwall, England

By Heather from Conversant Traveller

Cornwall is one of the most beautiful coastal spots in the United Kingdom, and a popular European holiday destination in June thanks to its beaches and great weather. The rugged coastline is peppered with hidden coves, dramatic cliffs, and sleepy fishing villages that have changed little over the centuries.

The best way to explore is hiking a section of the South West Coast Path, which winds its way along the coastal boundary of Cornwall. One of the prettiest stretches is from the harbour village of Mevagissey to St. Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula, with beaches and scenic viewpoints around every corner.

Meanwhile, the Eden Project is one of the top attractions in Cornwall, with huge biodomes full of tropical plants. You can spend a day discovering different habitats and learning about ecosystems from all corners of the globe. Or, for a bit of culture, head to the Minack Theatre down near Lands End and watch a performance with the sea as a backdrop.

June vacations are the best time to visit Cornwall. It’s warm but as it’s before the school holidays, the popular spots won’t yet be crowded. This is also a great time to see the colourful wildflowers in bloom, along the hedgerows and clifftops.

There are also several annual events in June, such as the Royal Cornwall Show, the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, and the Fowey Mussel Festival.


The Cornish weather is the best in the country, with long warm summers drawing visitors from near and far. In June, average daily temperatures are 64˚F, although some days it can be much warmer. It drops down to low 50s F in the evenings. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 8 days. It’s still one of the warmest months of the year.

Best Way To Reach Destination

To reach Cornwall from abroad, your best bet is to fly into London, then take a train (which takes five hours) to Penzance. Upon arrival, rent a car to get around, especially if you want to explore some of the remote stretches of coastline.

Hotel Recommendation

Heather says, “When it comes to accommodation, the Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth or the Mevagissey Bay Hotel are popular options.”

best European mountain range to visit in June
Kazbegi, Georgia (Photo courtesy of Annelies from Travelers And Dreamers)

Kazbegi, Georgia

By Annelies from Travelers And Dreamers

Kazbegi is a small town in northern Georgia in the Caucasus Mountains. It is 5700 feet (1740 meters) above sea level and surrounded by Kazbegi National Park. The views from town are dominated by the mighty Mount Kazbek.

Kazbegi is a perfect destination in Europe in June for outdoor adventurers. Hiking is the main activity in the area but you can also enjoy mineral water pools, two waterfalls, and visit the holy Gergeti Trinity Chuch.

There are three amazing day hikes in the area. From Kazbegi town, you can hike up all the way to Gergeti Trinity Church. Here you have magnificent views of the surrounding area. If you are up for it, you can hike a little further to the base camp of Mount Kazbek.

The second hike is the Juta Valley hike which requires a short drive to Juta Village, approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the center of Kazbegi. Here you can enjoy the desolate landscape of the Chaukhi Massive on a 5 miles (8 kilometer) hike.

The third one is the 13 miles (22-kilometer) Truso Valley hike where you can enjoy mineral water travertine formations and abandoned villages.

Tired from all the hiking? Make your way to the Pansheti Mineral pool, a short walk from Kazbegi near the town of Pansheti. The pool is fed by a mineral spring and a source of drinking water for the locals. It’s the perfect place to have a swim and relax after a strenuous day of hiking.

Kazbegi is a perfect place to visit for a June getaway. High season has not yet started so tourist numbers are still relatively low but the snow has disappeared in most parts of the valleys. Hiking conditions are excellent and you will have many sections all to yourself.


The weather in Kazbegi in June is cool with temperatures between 32°F and 46°F. With more than 22 rainy days, be sure to pack warm clothes, your umbrella and bring along your rubber boots to stay dry.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Kazbegi is easily reachable from Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, by car, bus, or shared taxi. It takes a three-hour drive from the capital along the scenic Georgian Military highway. Along the way, there are a lot of sights to explore like the Ananuri Fortress and the Russian-Georgian Friendship Monument so consider renting a car for this adventure.

Prices vary from 15 GEL ($5 USD) for a marshrutka van to 200 GEL (73 USD) for a private car with a driver. It is a bit of a hassle to get from Tbilisi airport directly to Kazbegi by public transport so it’s better to stay overnight in Tbilisi if you want to travel on a budget.

Hotel Recommendation

Annelies says, “Lostinn Kazbegi Hostel is a great place to stay in Kazbegi for an authentic Georgian experience while Rooms Hotel is perfect for travelers that like a touch of luxury.”

best countries to visit in June in Europe
Northeast Iceland (Ring Road), Iceland (Photo courtesy of Stephanie from The Unknown Enthusiast)

North East Iceland (Ring Road), Iceland

By Stephanie from The Unknown Enthusiast

Northeast Iceland is a truly mind-blowing place to visit. You can experience epic landscapes, waterfalls galore, unique and beautiful hot springs, old volcanoes, sulfuric hot pots, cute towns, and more. It’s a great addition to any Iceland Ring Road itinerary, or even worth a trip dedicated just to this region. 

June is one of the best times to visit Northeast Iceland as you get to trade in seeing the Northern Lights for experiencing the summer solstice, where the days are extremely long. In June, it will never be dark and you will see the Midnight sun – just *barely* set – before peeking back up on the horizon. It’s really a magical time. Plus, June 17 is Iceland’s national holiday, and between June 20-22, Icelanders celebrate the summer solstice. 

If you’re visiting northeast Iceland, you really must visit the city of Husavik. This city is known as the whale watching capital, not just of Iceland, but the entire European continent. Humpback and Minke whales are the most common whales you will see in Iceland during the Husavik summer. Take a whale watching tour to make sure you see these incredible creatures.

Other must-do’s in Husavik include going to the infinity hot springs at Geosea, visiting the so-called “gingerbread” church in town, looking for puffins, and watching the Midnight sun by the sea. 

Other sites in northeast Iceland include Studlagil Canyon, a “new” canyon that was discovered after a dam was built, dropping the water levels in the canyon river dramatically. This revealed stunning basalt columns lining a narrow river gorge – it truly is an otherworldly landscape!


Daily highs in northeast Iceland in June hover around 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit, dropping down to low 40s in the evening. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 9 days.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Akureyri and Egilsstaðir have international airports in the northeast region of Iceland, but most flights fly in and out of Reykjavik. It is on the other side of the country and about 6-7 hours away by car.

Hotel Recommendation

Stephanie says, “Since traveling by campervan is extremely popular in Iceland, I’d recommend you stay at the 66.12 North campsite just outside of Husavik. There is a large grassy area right on the water’s edge, plus really nice shower and kitchen facilities.”

best cities in Europe to visit in June

Copenhagen, Denmark

By Cecilie from Think Copenhagen

There are so many reasons why you should visit Copenhagen. All year round you can experience the capital’s historic buildings, visit the beautiful Little Mermaid Statue, take a canal tour around the city, and eat some of the best baked goods in the world.

However, there is something special about taking a June trip to Copenhagen which makes it one of the best cities in Europe to visit.

The month of June marks the first month of summer, and that’s when the city becomes fully alive again after winter. Everyone is out all day enjoying the weather, swimming in the ocean, eating and drinking at the many hip food markets, and biking from one event to another.

In addition, there are many fun events in June. There are Friday concerts in the famous Tivoli amusement park in the center of Copenhagen. On the evening of June 23, you can watch bonfires lit all over Denmark to celebrate Sankt Hans, the summer solstice.


Unfortunately, you can never predict the weather in Copenhagen. But most days in June consist of average temperatures around 68 degrees Fahrenheit – some days fully sunny, some days windy, and some days rainy (2 inches of rain over 8 days). It’s the perfect weather to go sightseeing as you won’t be too hot or too cold.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Copenhagen Airport is the largest airport in Scandinavia, so it’s super easy to find a flight connection to Copenhagen. The airport is only located around 6 miles (10 kilometers) away from the city center. You can quickly reach the city one the metro that runs 24 hours a day.

Hotel Recommendation

Cecilie says, “There are many hotels to choose, but it’s best to stay in the city center if you want to be close to most of the popular attractions in the city.

The 25Hours Hotel is located in the city center, right behind the Round Tower Building. It’s perfect for those looking for something new, hip, and modern.

If you’re looking for a more affordable option, then check out Next House Copenhagen, which also has a nice rooftop terrace. It’s possible to rent bikes at both hotel options, which is by far the most popular way to experience a city like Copenhagen in the summer.”

Nice, France

By Sarah from Cosmopoliclan

The French Riviera is dotted with iconic cities but Nice, with its central location and its international airport, make it the perfect home base to explore this glamorous region for one of the best June vacations in Europe. 

Start your exploration of Nice with a stroll along the palm-fringed Promenade des Anglais that lines the beach and connects Castle Hill to the airport. You’ll pass some important landmarks such as the Negresco hotel, the Jardin Albert 1er and the Villa Masséna which houses the Masséna Museum. 

Discover the Vieille Ville or Old Town with its colorful facades, winding alleys and the famous Cours Saleya market. There is no better place to go souvenir hunting or to indulge in the local street food such as socca bread or pan bagnat.

Visit some of Nice’s renowned art museums such as the Matisse Museum, the Marc Chagall National Museum, the Fine Arts Museum or the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

In June, sunny afternoons in Nice should be spent at one of the beach clubs that dot the Baie des Anges. It’s important to note, however, that all beaches in Nice are pebbly. But don’t let that put you off because some of the most amazing beaches of the French Riviera are an easy day trip away, whether you choose to rent a car on rely on public transport.

The crowds are noticeably lower in June than in May or the peak summer season, when high-level regional events such as the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival make accommodation scarce and prices go through the roof. That is why Nice is one of the best places to visit in Europe in June.


The weather in June is sunny but mild with average highs of 77°F, average lows of 65°F. There is hardly any rain and about 6 days with humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Fly into Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, a short drive to the city center.

Hotel Recommendation

Sarah says, “When it comes to accommodation, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From legendary properties such as the Hotel Negresco or the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée to more boutique-style accommodations such as the Palais Saleya Boutique hotel, there’s a variety of hotels to choose from.”

Saturnia, Italy

By Tori from Tori Pines Travel

Italy is a popular place to vacation. If you’re there in June, you are likely to find large crowds in all of the major cities and towns. Instead, venture out to the small villages and enjoy some of the charm that Italy has to offer.

One of the best places to explore in Europe in June is Saturnia, a small countryside village in the south of Tuscany, known and loved for its thermal hot springs. Saturnia is home to less than 300 residents. Stroll the cobblestone streets and learn about the interesting history of the town.

In the mornings, you’ll want to wake up early to visit the natural hot springs, the main reason to visit the town. The springs are completely free to the public and are just a five minute drive from Villa Acquaviva, a beautiful hotel. On your way, keep your eyes peeled for the springs because there’s a beautiful lookout point up on the hill above.

The hot springs are large and there will be plenty of space for you to spread out and relax if you visit in the morning. Try to arrive by 8am to have a peaceful experience. The water remains 99 degrees Fahrenheit year round, so between the hot water on your muscles, the steam on your face and the natural salts in the water, this place is the ultimate free spa experience. When you visit the springs, be sure to pack everything you’ll need, and find out where to park before you arrive!

You can also take a day trip to Saturnia. When you leave Saturnia, you will be glad you got an authentic Italian experience. You will also be planning a return trip as soon as possible.


Average highs in Saturnia in June are 79 degrees and average lows are 61 degrees Fahrenheit. You can expect around 1.5 inches of rain over 6 days with only a couple days of humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Fly into Rome’s international airport, pick up a rental car and drive two hours north into Tuscany to the town of Saturnia. It’s an easy and relaxing drive with rolling hills and quaint villages along the way

Hotel Recommendation

Tori says, “Stay at Villa Acquaviva, a vineyard resort with charming rooms and a green, sprawling property. The top notch service is enough reason to stay here, but there’s so much more that this place offers.

With warm weather, the large pool will be the perfect retreat and you can take a tour of the vineyards and enjoy a wine tasting. The hotel rooms are clean, comfortable and feature views of the rolling hills. The sweet vineyard puppies outside are an added bonus.

The best part of the resort is their restaurant, La Limonaia. All of the food in Tuscany will blow you away but this spot features fresh ingredients, homemade dishes and some of the best culinary creations you will try in all of your time in Italy.”

best cities in united kingdom to visit in June
London, England

London, England

By Laura from Travelers Universe

London needs no introduction. This city has the capacity to entertain visitors any time of the year, but visiting in June is a great time of year because the days are long and temperatures are pleasant and mild.

Of course, London being London, you can expect the occasional drizzle, and if that’s the case, you should enter one of the many museums (the National Gallery and the British Museums are among the best) or shelter inside the London Eye, for a fun 30 minute long ride. If you are looking for a bit of fun, consider doing a scavenger hunt in a London museum.

Although the Queen’s birthday was on April 21, she celebrates in June, when good weather is expected. Trooping the Colors is held on the second Saturday in June at the Horse Guards Parade, opposite St James’ Park. It is a military parade that has marked the official celebration of the Monarch’s birthday since the 18th century. It involves more than 1,400 royal guards, 200 horses and 400 musicians from the Household Division.

June is also Pride month and thousands of people of all genders, sexual orientations, races and creeds come together. There is a wide and varied program of theatre, dance, art, film, demonstrations, parties and activities throughout the city celebrating the diversity of the LGBT+ community.

In mid-June, one of the best things to do in London is to put on your fanciest hat and enjoy the world famous Royal Ascot Horse Races. Founded by Queen Anne in 1711, this race is a tradition among Londoners, who often use it as an excuse to dress up and have cocktails with friends while trying their luck with the bets.

Hotel Recommendation

Nicole says, “We stayed at the Z Hotel at Gloucester Place in London and loved it for a number of reasons. The location was exceptional for accessing many London attractions. We were in central London, easy walking distance to Hyde Park, and the amazing shopping district of Oxford Street. In addition, each day, they offered complimentary wine, beer, cheese, and desserts.”

Texel, Netherlands

By Cosette from Kars Travels

Texel is an island in the Northwest of the Netherlands. It’s the largest island of the group of Wadden islands located on the coast of Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands. The island is a popular vacation destination for the Dutch and Germans, and one of the best European holiday destinations in June.

When on Texel visit one of its many sandy beaches to go swimming or sunbathing. When it’s windy or just not warm, go for a walk on the beach or fly a kite.

Another fun thing to do is to go cycling on Texel. There are 140 kilometers/87 miles of biking lanes on Texel, enough for endless days of biking. The island is relatively flat so a lovely outdoor activity to enjoy for any level or fitness. However, Texel is an island, so expect some wind and pack a wind breaker. Bike renting facilities are available all over the island.

There are several fun museums on the island, such as the Schipbreuk- en Juttersmuseum Flora, which is all about shipwrecks and beach combing.

You can also see Texel on a one day tour from Amsterdam. For details, please see here.

The Summer solstice is on June 21st so the month of June offers long days of daylight. It’s also in between school holidays, so visiting in June is the best time to come as it is not as busy as the summer months of July and August.


In June, there’s moderate rainfall (around 1.7 inches over 8 days). The daily temperature is around 19°C/66°F which is pleasant for all kinds of outdoor activities.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the closest international airport. Pick up your rental car and drive 97 kilometers/60 miles which takes about 2 hours. Then, take a ferry from the city of Den Helder.

best places in June to visit in Europe
Krakow, Poland (Photo courtesy of Kami from My Wanderlust)

Krakow, Poland

By Kami from My Wanderlust

Krakow, the second-largest city in Poland, is one of the best June getaways in Europe. The city is not overcrowded with tourists, the days are long and sunny and the average temperature is lovely and warm, perfect for sightseeing and for hanging out outside.

That’s also when Wianki, one of the best events in Krakow, takes place. Wianki is a cultural outdoor event at the Vistula riverside to celebrate the summer solstice.

There are so many amazing things to do in Krakow that you need a few solid days to explore the city (and then save a few more for fascinating day trips to Auschwitz -Birkenau, and Wieliczka Salt Mine).

Krakow is one of the most important historical places in Central Europe. It was even the capital of Poland in the Middle Ages. Today, you can find numerous monuments from the old times, including the Royal Castle and a well-preserved Old Town (both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites).

You will find some of the best museums in Poland, showing works of both Polish and International artists (such as Leonardo da Vinci).

For years, Krakow has been the cultural capital of Poland and you can feel it in the bohemian vibe. That’s also why there are so many great cafes in Krakow. You can mostly find them around the Old Town and in Kazimierz, the former Jewish district, one of the best places to go in the evening.

The prices in Krakow are really affordable and you can experience the high quality of service and products for fairly low prices.


Average temperatures in Krakow in June is above 70°F with lows around 53°F. You can expect around 3 inches of rainfall over 11 days).

Best Way To Reach Destination

It’s very easy to reach Krakow since the city has its own international airport with direct flights from numerous destinations in Europe, the Middle East, and the US. You can also take direct trains from nearby countries.

Hotel Recommendation

Kami says, “Since it’s a popular destination, there are plenty of accommodation options to choose from. If you are looking for a nice hotel that has a great location and is a good value then Ventus Rosa Boutique Aparthotel is a good option.”

Ksamil (Albanian Rivera), Albania

By Ann and Rick from The Road Is Life

When pondering a European beach holiday, the small town of Ksamil in Albania is probably not the first place that comes to mind. This is quickly changing in recent years, with more people discovering the beauty and affordability of the Albanian Riviera. It is one of the best destinations to visit in Europe in June.

Ksamil is the highlight of the Riviera and has everything you need for a perfect beach getaway. The water is a stunning shade of blue and super clean. The beach chairs are cheap and nowhere near as densely packed as elsewhere in Europe. Along the waterfront are plenty of great restaurants and bars that will deliver straight to your beach chair!

If you get bored of working on your tan, you can easily rent kayaks, snorkelling gear, or rent paddle-boards and take a guided tour.

With a day to spare you can also explore some other highlights of southern Albania

Just outside town and accessible by local bus is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Butrint Archaeological Site. There are fairly extensive Greek and Roman ruins surrounded by a national park, perfect for an afternoon of exploring.

Trips can also be organised to the town of Gjirokaster, which is one of the top highlights of Albania. The beautiful 17th century houses feature iconic stone roof tiles and the hilltop fortress has fantastic views of the surrounding mountain valley.


June is the perfect month to visit Ksamil with an average daytime temperature of 84F and only couple of days of rain. The following summer months heat up and can be uncomfortable for some people. 

Best Way To Reach Destination

Unfortunately, Ksamil is not easy to reach. You have to fly to Corfu, one of the Greek Islands, and the closest international airport. From here, it’s a short taxi ride to the ferry terminal, followed by a one hour ferry to Sarandë in Albania. After that, it’s a 30min drive to Ksamil by taxi or local bus.

Whilst being more difficult to access can be an annoyance, it also means less crowds. The lower visitor numbers combined with much lower prices mean that once you do arrive, you can really relax, unwind and stick to your budget.

Hotel Recommendation

Ann and Rick say, “The beachfront is down a fairly steep hill from the main road so make sure you find accommodation close to the water. Check out Delight Hotel for the perfect beachfront location and clean, modern rooms.”

best European destinations in June
Helsinki, Finland (Photo courtesy of Nicholas from Rambling Feet)

Helsinki, Finland

By Nicholas from Rambling Feet

Helsinki, the capital of Finland, sits on the edge of the European continent and is perfectly placed as a gateway to the North.

There are many things to see and do in Helsinki. They include the island fortress of Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It once protected the city when it was under Swedish and Russian rule.

You can tour, walk or cycle around the village and see the ramparts in a day, though it is also possible to spend the night at Villa Silo. It would be rather different from a stay at one of the city center’s many other hotels.

There is good reason to return to the city center, though, with its many attractive 19th- and early 20th-Century buildings. Book an excursion to explore the railway station with its enormous semicircular entrance, flanked by four lamp-wielding statues; the neoclassical Cathedral in the Senate Square; and Temppeliaukio Church, a subterranean church carved out of the solid rock in the Töölö district.

Helsinki is one of the best city breaks in June in Europe as two major festivals take place. Helsinki Day falls on June 12, marking the anniversary of its founding by King Gustav I of Sweden in 1550. Many special events take place throughout the week. On the day itself, there are special exhibitions, open-air picnics and free concerts.

These festivities are quickly followed by the midsummer holiday between June 20 – June 26, when many Finns retreat to the countryside and light bonfires by the side of the sea or a lake. If you are not lucky enough to join them and experience this tradition, the open-air museum in Seurasaari holds its own celebration in the weeks before the holiday.


In June, the weather in Helsinki is usually cloudy or overcast, with an average temperature between 51 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit (11 and 19 degrees Celsius). There is around 1.9 inches of rain over 7 days). However, daylight lasts almost 19 hours. The sunshine is great for energy levels, though you may need blackout curtains to sleep properly.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Helsinki Airport serves the city and is the country’s busiest, with many flights from Asia, Europe and North America. From there, it is a 30-minute ride to the city center via train, which runs every 10 minutes in a bi-directional loop. Helsinki is also well connected via ferries to Stockholm, Tallinn and many other cities around the Baltic Sea.

Hotel Recommendation

Consider Scandic Grand Central Helsinki, a 4-star hotel situated right in the heart of downtown Helsinki.

Oviedo (Asturias), Spain

By Alya from Stingy Nomads

Asturias is a beautiful region in northern Spain that is famous for its mountains and beaches. The capital of the region is Oviedo, a beautiful city surrounded by mountains. Hiking, rock climbing, and surfing are some of the main outdoor activities enjoyed by many local and foreign tourists in the region. For any outdoor enthusiast, Asturias is one of the best European spots to visit in June.

Los Picos de Europa National Park is an amazing place for hiking. There are many day hikes and a couple of multi-day routes such as the Camino Primitivo with breathtaking views of the mountain ranges and the coast.

Rock climbing is another popular outdoor activity in the National Park. Limestone peaks have endless climbing potential with different levels of difficulty.

There are several surfing spots and surf campsites along the coast of Asturias. Some of the best surf spots in the region are Gijon, Salines, Tapia de Casariego. The water here is always cold so one needs a good wetsuit. 


Asturias is a great place to escape the intense summer heat in Europe. It doesn’t get scorching hot like in many other parts of Spain.

Daily temperatures in the summer are between 60°F and 65°F. It rains quite a lot in Asturias, though summer months see the least number of rainfall with around 5 days in June.

Best Way To Reach Destination

There is only one international airport in the region, Asturias Airport situated 15 km from Aviles, 40 km from Gijon, and 48 km from Oviedo, the largest cities. It’s easy to get around Asturias using buses and trains.

Hotel Recommendation

Alya says, “Oviedo is a great place to stay in Asturias because it is close to the sea and the mountains. Aparthotel Campus and Boutique Hotel Oviedo are some of the most popular places to stay in the city.

Camping La Paz in Llanes is a perfect place for those who want to camp by the beach. El Cares in Los Picos de Europa National Park is a great campsite for hikers.”

June is best time to visit Paris in Europe

Paris, France

By Fiona from Travelling Thirties

Paris, the city of love, is filled with picture perfect streets, famous landmarks, beautiful green parks, the stunning River Seine and bakeries with wafting mouth watering smells.

Paris is the perfect European city to visit at any time of year but it really comes to life in June. The long nights and warm weather make it a fantastic place to wander the streets, get lost in hidden courtyards and gardens, and discover beautiful outdoor patios.

Whether you are visiting Paris for the first or the hundredth time, a visit to Paris is always filled with excitement.

Tourists flock to Paris to see the world famous Eiffel Tower, climb the Arc de Triomphe and shop on the gorgeous Champs de L’Elysee.

One of the best things to do in Paris is to purchase tickets to see the Moulin Rouge. The Moulin Rouge is one of the oldest cabaret shows and the perfect way to spend an evening in Paris.

If watching dancers whilst sipping on champagne is not up your alley, then perhaps consider touring the creepy skulls underground at the Catacombs.

Picnicking in the gardens, at Sacre-coeur or under the Eiffel Tower is a favourite pastime for locals and travellers alike. June is a wonderful time of year to have a picnic in Paris!


Paris has around 2 inches of rain in June over 7 days, with average temperatures in June ranging from 57°F – 74°F. There is no humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The city center is located close to two airports, Charles De Gaulle and Orly Airports. Both are around a 45-minute drive from the main areas of Paris.

There are trains and other public transportation options available. Although cheaper, they are much more time consuming. There is a train from Charles De Gaulle or the shuttle bus from Orly Airport.

Hotel Recommendation

Fiona says, “One of the best places to stay is Hotel Petit Paris. The hotel is located close to the Luxembourg Gardens which is a beautiful place for an evening picnic.”

Carvoeiro (The Algarve), Portugal

By Alya from The Algarve Family

Carvoeiro is a small picturesque beach town in the Algarve region of Portugal. It’s one of the best trips for a June escape in Europe. It’s already warm and sunny, everything is open and ready for the season but there are still fewer tourists than July and August.

Carvoeiro has a lot to offer to its visitors. The spectacular Carvoeiro Beach is surrounded by cliffs and a lovely place for swimming and tanning. Tourists can rent a beach chair with an umbrella during the summer months. While there, explore Algar Seco, an amazing network of caves, pools, and arches.

Carvoeiro is also a fantastic place to visit for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, or paddle boarding. Several coastal walking routes including the Carvoeiro boardwalk start in the town.

The views from the trail are truly breathtaking: unspoiled sandy beaches, rugged limestone cliffs, steep drops, and the turquoise colour sea. You should start hiking early in the morning before it gets too hot.


The average temperature in Carvoeiro in June is 77°F with evening lows of 63°F. There is practically no rain or humidity.

Best Way To Reach Destination

The easiest way to reach Carvoeiro is to fly into the International Airport in Faro. There are direct flights from many cities in Europe. From Faro Airport, you can take a bus or rent a car. The town is 37 miles (60 km) from the airport, a 40-minute drive.

Hotel Recommendation

Alya says, “There are many amazing places to stay in Carvoeiro. The O Quintal Guesthouse is close to the beach, and a great option.”

Amsterdam, Netherlands (Photo courtesy of Catalina Fedorova from Unsplash)

Amsterdam, Netherlands

By Penny from Globe Trove

Amsterdam is one of the most popular destinations in Europe all year round but June is one of the best times to visit the city. In June, the skies are blue and the weather isn’t too hot.

Make sure you rent a bicycle or take a bike tour to see all the city highlights. It will allow you to see the narrow lanes, the tall houses and scenic canals from a different perspective.

Visit Amsterdam’s iconic floating Flower Market, open since 1862, and one of several flower markets in Amsterdam. Amsterdam’s flower markets are considered some of the best flower markets in the world.

The Red Light area and the canal cruises are also very popular. Don’t forget to check out the numerous museums in the city. The Rijksmuseum (the National Museum) and the Van Gogh museum are top picks.

Lastly, make sure you delve into the food scene. From herring to stroopwafels, from coffees to beers and everything in between, Amsterdam has a lot to offer anyone who loves their food. 

Oh and another reason why the city is great is because you can catch trains to all the other parts of the Netherlands (and to other countries) from the middle of the city.


Average high temperature in Amsterdam in June is 66 degrees Fahrenheit with evening lows of 52 degrees Fahrenheit. You can expect around 2 inches of rain over 8 days.

Best Way To Reach Destination

Amsterdam is a great place to visit because of Schiphol Airport is a large hub for connecting flights not only in Europe but worldwide. In fact, many people choose their connecting flights in such a way that they get to spend one or two days in Amsterdam!

Hotel Recommendation

Nicole says, “If you want to treat yourself to an all inclusive experience in the center of Amsterdam, then consider the Banks Mansion. From a delicious hot breakfast, out of this world complimentary cheese and hors d’ouevres in late afternoon, to the ever present open liquor and candy bar, this place is a real treat.”

Last Word

If you have decided to go to Europe in June, then you have made an excellent decision. The weather is truly lovely and the crowds have not yet descended in full force so that you can enjoy everything that Europe has to offer without the intense heat of summer and bustling crowds. From beaches, mountains, cities, and small towns, there are countless June getaways awaiting you in Europe.
