Weather & Climate

Spain’s Basque Country has a relatively mild, maritime climate which is heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Summers are generally warm, without being too hot, while winters are mild, although colder further inland. The temperate ocean water regulates the temperature in this region, sparing it from extremely hot summers and very cold winters. The region has the coolest summer temperatures in Spain and is arguably the most comfortable area in the country. Rainfall is fairly high and is lowest in the summer, but the region is wetter than other parts of the country.

Summer months are warmest but can be crowded with tourists during the festivals in August and beginning of September. April, May, late-September and October have fewer tourists with cooler but pleasant temperatures.  EXPECT RAIN at any time of the year. Don't leave home without rain gear.
