Weather Overview for Lake Garda
If you’ve ever wondered what
The lake and its shorelines are
divided between the three Italian provinces of
On the whole, the weather is
pleasant all year round in
The summer sees temperatures hit highs which some may find uncomfortable - but the day is broken up by cooling breezes which moderate the conditions. Summer sees daily averages of 28 and 29 degrees in August and July respectively, and the temperature can often rise above 30 degrees and stay that way for days on end. The saving grace is the water temperature which sits at a beautiful 19 to 22 degrees throughout summer- perfect for cooling off in. The lake waters are beautiful and clean and you can take part in the variety of water sports that are on offer on the shores. If swimming is on your agenda, the best parts are in the south of the lake and in the shallow more sheltered areas as here you will find the water is much warmer.
Lake Garda is more popular in the
summer months, as during the months from June to September the water is warm enough to swim in, the days are long and the temperatures
are warm - however, winter can also be a great time to visit, as not only
can you make the most of the off season in the form of cheaper prices and fewer
tourists, it also gives you an opportunity to take in some of the other things
the region has to offer that may go unnoticed when you’re spending your time in
the sun of the summer months. The mountains and lake have combined to create
the perfect landscape for outdoor sports.
The lower winter rainfall and cooling winds also mean that the views across the lakes are usually crystal clear and the sky is often a flawless blue, spotted with only a few white clouds. While you won’t be able to swim in the winter (remember the lake is filled by waters that run down from the mountains after the snow has melted) you can wander the beautiful stone streets and explore the historic towns.
The daily temperature throughout winter is 8 degrees in December and February, and a minimal 6 degrees in January. Daily hours of sunshine falls to about 4 hours and the days are quite a bit shorter than in the summer months, but there are still plenty of bright sunny hours in the day to utilize.
Rainfall is at its maximum during spring and late autumn, so pack a raincoat if visiting during this period. Snow does fall occasionally in the height of winter, and obviously more snowfall is experienced as you move up to high elevations.
