Where to go on holiday in June

Introduction

Whether it's an island-hopping adventure in the Med, an adventure under Scandinavia's Midnight Sun or a safari in Southern Africa,  June offers up a wealth of travel experiences to suit all tastes. Our specialists have picked out their favourites below.

Europe's Islands and beaches

June sees summer start in the northern hemisphere. Head to PortugalSpain, Italy and southern France before the crowds arrive later in the season, or go island hopping in Croatia or Greece. Whatever you choose, you an expect some glorious weather to go alongside all that superb food and wine.

Road trips & rail journeys in North America

In the USA, meanwhile, why not explore the music of the Deep South with a road trip taking in Nashville and Memphis. Look to the start of the month to avoid the summer heat. Meanwhile, Boston and Cape Cod benefit from fewer crowds and a favourable temperature, while California sparkles in the early-summer sun. Further north, southern Canada is warm and inviting – head to Montreal in June for the annual Jazz Festival. Then, in the west, the Rocky Mountaineer train is perhaps our favourite way to take in the delights of British Columbia and Alberta's Rocky Mountains.

The Midnight Sun in Scandinavia and the Nordics

Closer to home, Scandinavia celebrates the arrival of the Midnight Sun, with long days and virtually no nights. The ICEHOTEL 365 comes into its own, with a range of summer excursions and a unique summer ice hotel stay possible. Self-drives across Norway, Iceland and Denmark are all good options, with the long days complementing the lower crowds. Iceland is also superb at this time of year – head out among the geological marvels of the Golden Circle or spot whales playing in the North Atlantic swells.

Incredible wildlife holidays in Africa

In Africa, Zambia's walking safaris are at their best, while it is also the ideal month for gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda – a true bucket-list experience. And, speaking of bucket list, June also sees the start of the wildebeest migration in Tanzania as thousands-strong herds make their way across the Serengeti.  

The north of Australia

In Australia, it's a great time to visit Queensland (Great Barrier Reef), as well as the northern half of Western Australia, the Red Centre (Uluru) and the Northern Territory. Travel to Sydney to catch the excellent Vivid Sydney light and music festival.
