Europe in August

July and August are considered peak months for backpackers and other travellers who come to the nation to enjoy the wonderful weather. Due to the scorching weather, avoid visiting Mediterranean nations around this period. Also, because it is the peak tourist season in Europe, hotel and other lodging costs usually climb. Because Europe has a diverse terrain, the temperature differs by area, from Mediterranean islands to cold Norwegian fjords. In most European nations, the weather in August is nice.
