Best time to go on a multi activity holiday in Spain
Activities transform with the seasons. Snowshoeing is stirred into itineraries during winter, while white-knuckle white-water rafting is best in spring, when snowmelt lends the waters an extra kick.
April, May and June are the best times to go on a multi activity holiday in Spain. It’s not very busy and the weather is lovely. You get wildflowers in May and the landscape is gorgeously green after rainier weather. May is a great month for hiking and canyoning, while June is much better for white-water rafting. April and October are popular with families; they’re a good time to visit Spain if you’re not a fan of the heat. For July and August, head away from the crowded coast and into the quieter, cooler Picos de Europa or the Pyrenees. Alternatively, explore inland Andalucia in August for shaded pine forest trails and cool canyons.
Multi activity holidays in Spain, month by month
Ana Rodriguez Garcia, founder of our multi activity specialists Peak Me Languages, is based in the Picos de Europa. She recommends travelling out of season if you can: “There are no international chains here – all businesses are local. Because our season is so long we can help them. Many businesses only make money in the 6-8 weeks of summer and Easter. The rest of the year is almost dead. To have people coming in from March all the way to October really makes the difference. We tell people to come outside those busy six weeks in the summer because the experience is so much more real in those months… We try and extend our season as much as we can.”
