Top Destinations to Visit in June

As school is nearly out, the summer holiday season is just around the corner. June is an excellent time to book a break as it is often the last month to get away before peak summer season in many destinations, allowing travelers to avoid the crowds. Additionally, June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, making it a great time for sunshine-filled days in many places around the world.

If you’re looking for great festivals, Glastonbury is a must-attend event. The world’s largest greenfield music festival takes place every June in 900 acres of countryside in England’s south-west. Running for more than five decades, Glastonbury attracts hundreds of thousands of revelers each year.

Sri Lanka’s original surfing hot spot, Arugam Bay, is perfect to visit in June as this is when the waves are at their best. It’s also the best time to go before the country’s beaches fill up with summertime tourists who typically flock to Sri Lanka during July and August.

Every June, Sweden celebrates its annual midsummer festival, one of the country’s biggest events. Coinciding with the longest day of the year, the occasion has long been considered a magical night for Swedes. Dalarna County, in central Sweden, is the place to go for the full experience, including revellers dressed in traditional folk costumes, dancing, garland-filled parades, and maypole raising.

For those who love wildlife, Tanzania is the perfect destination as you get the opportunity to witness the great migration of herds of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra in Serengeti National Park. Head to the park’s Western Corridor to see this natural wonder in all its glory. The daytime brings sunshine and temperatures averaging around a pleasant 25 degrees, although evenings are colder.

In Australia, the first taste of winter arrives this month, but Queensland is welcoming its dry season and lowest rainfall, making it a perfect time to swim and snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, sail the Whitsundays, and enjoy the beach. As it is considered an off-season for international travellers, it’s also the right time to find deals on accommodations and flights, and to enjoy a visit that’s not filled with tourist-ridden coastlines.

In Iceland, summer has arrived, bringing with it the endless midnight sun, blooming fields of lupin, and warmer temperatures. Husavik, on the country’s northern edge, is the place to go for a summertime whale watching experience and to soak in a geothermal pool. Just don’t expect to go swimming, as the water temperature will still be hovering around a chilly 6 degrees.

Lastly, if you want to enjoy an outdoor adventure and experience nature at its best, Uganda is an excellent destination to try. The country has made a name for itself as one of the best places in the world to see mountain gorillas in their native habitats. June is the start of the country’s drier season, so it’s a good time to spot these majestic creatures at ease. Days are warm and dry, with only an occasional rain shower. It is also an excellent time of year for a visit to Lake Victoria if you want to experience it before the summer crowds arrive.
