When is the best time to go to Croatia?
You can have a great time in Croatia regardless of what time of year you visit us. When you decide to go pretty much depends on your personal preferences in climate – as the climate in most of the country varies – budget and interest. Let’s look at the seasons of the year for a guide and let you decide when you might like to come and experience the old world charm of Croatia.
Croatia’s most moderate temperatures are between April and September. Northern Croatia has as “continental” climate and temperatures here are similar to that in California for example. August is a warm time that can even get into the triple digits! This is an ideal time to join us on our walking tours, cruises and bike rides through the country if you love the heat. All in all, the best time for someone who is a fan of moderate temperatures is earlier in the summertime. Many couples choose this time to take advantage of our Croatia honeymoon travel packages under the warm Mediterranean sky. Our honeymoon and romance package include snorkeling, visits to charming boutique cottages, tours through museums, and galleries, etc. Yes, a Croatia honeymoon lets couples take in the ambiance of the Mediterranean while having fun, adventure, and romance. On the whole, many people consider May, June, September, and October to be the ideal months to visit Croatia. At these times there are still many sunny days because of Croatia’s coast plus the crowds are not too great.
On the other hand, October in Croatia can be a bit cool but not cold. For the sturdier among us, it is still pleasant enough to enjoy outdoor activities such as snorkeling, sailing, etc. Even during the coldest months Croatia usually does not become unpleasantly chilly. If the price is your main consideration, it is generally cheaper to travel to Croatia during what is called the “shoulder season” months of May and June and September and October.
So you see it all depends on your schedule and which activities you choose to participate in. Most festivals and public celebrations take place from April through August but you can always find plenty of sights to see all year round from delicious cuisine to sample and places to visit to wine tasting to cruises and more. When is the best time to go to Croatia? Whenever you’re ready!
