Best Time To Visit Spain

by Cindy Guerra 10+ Years Experienced Blogger

It's important to know the best time to visit Spain to enjoy the best of local offerings. Travel to Spain is in the autumn or the spring season is considered ideal.  Autumn is the season when it’s the best time to see the changing colors of the falls season and the golden yellow leaves on the trees.  Enjoy the grape harvest season on an outing of the vineyards during the harvest season; either on foot or horse to some of the best bodegas of Rioja and Jerez. There are many options like taking a balloon flight over them or taking part in wine crushing and production process or trying sample tapas, main course and desserts based around grapes.

March to May is the best time to engage in excursions and enjoying the marvelous weather. From hiking to cycling or getting engaged in an array of cultural festivals and parades happening all across the country. Enjoy the bullfighting season of Seville and some Flamenco in March. This is also the time to engage in some of the local gastronomic delights as spring is the time of ripening of local produce and a great time for mushroom foraging. April, May and June are considered the best seasons to visit Spain.

Peak summer season is ideal for water-based sports and it's beach time for the visitors. Weather is warm and many tours only get opened in summers but it has several disadvantages to it as well like a large influx of foreign tourists and fully packed facilities, sultry weather and deserted cities. This is the time to avail good flight deals to the northern part of Spain like Bilbo and Algorta which are much cooler.

During the start of the spring and late summers, Spain is abuzz with lots of famous music festival like the Primavera Sound or the MadCool. The balmy weather of late spring and early fall summer season is the best time to move to the beaches of Costa del Sol.

The month of September and October is the second best time to visit Spain and serves as an alternative to a spring tour. October has a more British like weather in the 20°C range.

Winters are the best time to avoid crowd and avail the advantage of cheap business class flying ( and enjoy the experience of rich cultural activities. The trip is incomplete without visiting the twin cities of Madrid and Barcelona, pounding the pavements of the art galleries and museums here or exploring the streets infused with gothic art, this is the best time for it all. Nightlife during this time is equally exciting.

Months of December until February is when cheap flight tickets ( are easily available in the low season and the weather is still palpable. It is less crowded and easier to book hotels and avail some free itinerary along with ample events happening in this season. Definitely a time on the list of skiers and those keen on trying the culinary treasure or engaging in an epicurean tour. This is when hotels and properties are available at the cheapest price.

January is celebrations time with a number of interesting events in the Balearic Island; a time to witness the famed reverberations of the Tamborrada drumming in the city of San Sebastian. February is also the carnival month with some of the most happening events taking place in the Canary Islands.

There are many websites that provide average temperature on a month to month basis. Not all seasons is feasible for everyone to travel to Spain so it’s advisable to check the weather for each place before you plan an itinerary to Spain.
