Best time to visit?
While many people opt to visit Spain in the late spring (April–May) or early autumn (September–October), attracted by pleasant temperatures and lighter crowds, the country’s diverse offerings mean you can find something to enjoy at any time of year. Spain has a relatively mild climate, staying mostly dry year-round and with winter temperatures rarely dropping below 10°C (50°F). Summers can be quite hot, especially in the south and see a greater influx of European visitors heading to the popular beach resorts. While it can get cold and wet in the north during the winter, the south remains very pleasant. Equally, temperatures in the north make it a great option during the summer if you are worried about the heat.
Spend time in Spain's La Rioja region, renowned for its wine production, where you'll enjoy multiple winery tours and tastings. You'll also have time to explore the Spanish cities of Madrid, Bilbao and San Sebastian.
