Best Countries to Visit in June

8 mins. read

The month of June is when the Indian summer is at its peak. The days are hot and unpleasant and the nights too aren’t all that kind. The sense dictates to stay clear of the heat, keep yourself hydrated, and step out at night; but the mind tells to pack your bags and step outside. The world has a wealth of countries where you can go and explore, but if you are looking specifically planning to travel in June, then here are the best countries to visit at this time:

New Zealand

If you need a place to escape the scorching summer heat, then New Zealand is the country to visit in June. An island country in the Pacific Ocean with quite a diverse landscape, New Zealand is wintery in June, with temperatures averaging between 1 to 15 degrees Celsius. You can expect to see snow in New Zealand in June, which means you can go skiing! However, if you don’t feel like indulging in adventure sports, you can simply enjoy hot baths in heated pools in Hawke’s Bay while enjoying some tasty, citrusy local fruits. If you are lucky, you might also get to witness Matariki or the Maori New Year Festival which usually takes place sometime in June or July. Hiking in Auckland where the winters are not as cold is also quite popular with tourists in New Zealand. Book New Zealand tour packages today!

Japan

Japan, also famous as the “land of the rising sun” is another good option among countries to visit in June. Recognized for the production of ground-breaking technologies, unique food, internationally-known cinema, and interesting culture, Japan is a country with picturesque surroundings.

And with the pretty cherry blossom trees in full bloom amidst the country’s unusual architecture, Japan appears to be especially stunning in the month of June. The temperature ranges between 20 to 30 degrees Celsius with frequent rain across several regions in the country. You can go around exploring the natural beauty of Hokkaido, visiting hot spring resorts in Hakone or checking out one of Japan’s iconic landmarks like Mount Fuji. Japanese festivals like the Otaue rice planting festival, the Yosakoi Soran festival, and the Sanno festival are also celebrated around this time of the year. Book Japan holiday packages today!

Turkey

Recognized worldwide for its powerful Ottoman empire, Turkey is a Eurasian country. A popular destination among tourists, Turkey has a distinct landscape and has as many as 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites across the country. Some of these sites include Ani, Mardin, Kayakoy, and Alahan Monastery.

The best thing about visiting Turkey in June is that different regions within the country can have different weather conditions. Although the maximum temperature in June is mostly around 30 degrees Celsius during the day, it can drop to 19 degrees or less at night.  In June, Turkey hosts the three-day long festival of Cappadox which brings along an exciting mix of art, music, eco-friendly activities, meditation, yoga, and so on. Hot air balloon rides over the semi-arid region of Cappadocia and delicious Turkish coffee are a few other popular things that you can indulge in. Book Turkey tour packages now!

Spain

A nation famous for its obsession with football, Spain is a progressive country that features immense diversity. Bordered by rivers and high mountains, Spain has rich biodiversity as well. And although it is summer in Spain as well, it still is one of the best countries to travel to in June as summer festivals are held during this time. You can also go around exploring the world-famous beaches or coastal towns like Costa Brava or Costa del Sol in Spain.  And if you would like to have some good wine, then there are centuries old wine cellars and large vineyards in the country to head out to. There is also the exhilarating and unusual Battle of Wine organized in Northern Spain that you can attend in June. And in case you like partying, don’t forget to check out the nightlife in Madrid.

Italy

Full of inspiration and popular for its outstanding gastronomy, art, architecture, and history, Italy is also one of the best countries to visit in June. The temperature at this time is at an average of 21 to 24 degrees Celsius, and the evenings are pleasant. The days are warm but not uncomfortable. You can go around exploring the many gems that Spain has to offer, such as the exotic landscapes along the Amalfi coast and Cinque Terre, the island of Sicily, the green countryside of Tuscany, and so on.

Several festivals are also celebrated in Italy during the month of June like Republic Day, Saint Peter’s and Paul’s Day. But if you like music, dancing, food, and some fireworks, then you have to attend the Festival of Saint Giovanni which is also the oldest and biggest event in Italy. Book package holidays to Italy!

Finland

A Nordic country in Northern Europe, Finland is also referred to as the “Land of the Midnight Sun” owing to the fact that the southern regions of the country experience twilight for two months. When visiting this country in June, you can also attend the Midnight Sun Film Festival which is a five-day affair.

Finland is a country with extremely cold winters which is what makes the summer month of June special for locals and tourists alike. A stark deviation from the chilly winters when temperatures can hit as low as -30 degrees Celsius, the temperature during June can range between 15 to 30 degrees Celsius. You can rent out a lakeside cottage, indulge in sailing, revel in the countryside’s beauty or attend music festivals here. Book your Finland trip now!

Peru

A Spanish speaking country in South America that’s surrounded by the Andes mountain ranges, beaches, Amazon River, and rainforests, Peru is a country with a rich culture that comprises people from different ethnicities. It is winter in Peru during the month of June and the average temperature ranges between 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. Once known as the land of the Inca Empire, Peru celebrates Inti Raymi, a traditional religious ceremony in June. Another festival called Saint Juan is celebrated in Amazon in honor of Saint John the Baptist. Attending these festivals will give you a great insight into the rich culture of the country.

Other than that, you can visit the magnificent citadel of Machu Picchu, explore the ancient remnants of Chan Chan or fly over the geoglyphs at Nazca. And if you seek adventure, then the chiseled peaks and Pacific breaks await you with opportunities for zip-lining, rafting, bike trails, and more.
