How is the climate in Greece?


Most of Greece has a Mediterranean climate that is characterized by mild winters and dry, warm summers.

In the higher parts of the interior there may be periods of cold and winter rainfall in the winters. In some parts of Greece it is even possible to do winter sports.

Of course it is possible that there are already lovely temperatures in the spring months. But it may also be that the sun only shows itself in the summer months. On the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea you should not be surprised if the thermometer suddenly hits the 45 degrees.


If you find the heat a bit too overwhelming, it is a lot more pleasant by the sea. There is only a small chance that you will have to deal with rain or clouds during the summer period.

The "wettest" parts of Greece can be found in the northwestern part of the mainland, including the Ionian Islands (Corfu, Lefkas, Ithaka, Kefalonia and Zakynthos). The southern part of Crete also has on average more rainfall than other destinations in Greece.
