Craving some sunshine in June? Australia may not be an option because the cold is already taking a chilly grip. Then the seasonal monsoons are beginning to bounce in Southern Asia. So, it pays to strategically plan June holidays.
The Best Destinations for a Holiday in June
It is summertime in Europe. You can find a local beach, take a flight to Canada, or track some mountain gorillas in Rwanda, Africa.
With mountains calling in Northern California, June is the right time to adventure into Yosemite National Park. Waterfalls take a spill throughout the year and campsites remain open thanks to the permitting climate. Climb the Half Dome before students take a school break. Or head south and enjoy the glitz and glam of Los Angeles or the sunny beaches of San Diego.
Banff National Park, Canada
Thanks to the azure waters of Lake Louise, this is one best spots for taking photographs in Canada. The picture-perfect lake contrasts the snow-capped hills and pine forest, creating a gorgeous vista.
The valley brings winery, yoga studios, spas, and dining to the table. Experience a thriving art scene at Dia Beacon Museum.
Turquoise lagoons are spread across the small islands of French Polynesia where soft beaches are bordered by swaying palms. It is an ideal paradise for escaping the up and downs of normal working days. One of the best archipelagos in French Polynesia is Bora Bora, which comprises iconic lodges perched over the crystal clear waters.
Discover the 'fairy chimneys' in this fantasy landscape in Turkey. Underground cities and caves make June holidays in Cappadocia even more exciting. The blooming wild petals provide a picturesque background for photos. Beat the commotion by doing some horseback riding or hiking.
Over the summer, Iceland turns into a glorious playground as well as a brilliant hiking destination. More than 20 whale species and other sea animals are possible to spot, including dolphins, humpbacks, and minkes. Get to know the local folklore as you enjoy the bizarre landscapes and savour local blueberry ice cream.
June is cool and dry in Rwanda, an East African country famed for steamy bamboo forests home to mountain gorillas. Kigali, the capital city, is clean and green. Grab some dry-rub pork before driving off to Lake Kivu for cycle trails and boat tours.
Bazaruto is probably the coolest island in Mozambique for a beachy getaway in June. The island is surrounded by the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, home to over 2,000 species of fish. Snorkelling and diving is a dream here.
The weather is fantastic in June, so you can visit Kruger National Park or the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the northern part of South Africa. Remember to carry a winter sleeping bag because the temperatures are cold at night. For further relaxation, visit the lovely beaches of the KwaZulu-Natal coast.
