Climate in Spain
Climatically, Spain is one of the warmest countries in Europe with over 3000 hours of sunshine per year. A predominantly Mediterranean climate with dry summers, mild winters and balanced temperatures provides ideal conditions for outdoor activities. However, the climate varies within the country depending on the geographical location and particular landforms.
Take advantage of the warm spring and autumn days and mild winter months of the Mediterranean climate for hiking in the Mediterranean region and the Balearic Islands. Or experience the green landscapes of the north from spring to autumn: The Atlantic climate, which extends from the Pyrenees to Galicia, has given rise to lush deciduous forests there. If you are looking for pleasant temperatures all year round, the subtropical climate of the Canary Islands is a real guarantee. Amazing volcanic moonscapes and extraordinary ecosystems await you. Snow can also be found in the Spanish mountainous regions, especially during the winter months: Enjoy the beauty of the snowy landscapes created by the mountain climate in such spectacular places as the Pyrenees or the Sierra Nevada, or in the many almost unknown mountain worlds in the inland of the country.
If you want to get to know Spain's traditional folk culture, immerse yourself in one of its lively festivals. The spring festival Feria de Abril in Seville, the Carnival in the Canary Islands or the Fallas in Valencia will delight you. But there is much more to discover in all regions of Spain!
And hardly any other country offers so many excellent festivals for music, theater and film. Some top events are the International Film Festival of San Sebastián, the FIB in Benicàssim or the Festival of Classical Theater in Almagro. And if you come in the summer, look forward to the many outdoor festivals.
