Europe Weather Overview

Europe, one of the earths 7 continents, experiences what you could say is the widest range in weather conditions than anywhere else on earth. Bound by the Arctic Ocean in the north, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and home to a diverse topography of mountain ranges, plateaus, lakes and rivers it is no wonder such a huge array of weather conditions prevail.

Europe is home to some of the worlds coldest and unbearable conditions (northern Scandinavia) as well as some of the most amazing weather in the world- French Riveria, Greece, Croatia, Monaco... the list goes on!

Like the colourful range of cuisine that can be tasted across Europe, the weather exhibits a similar exotic spread with a climate to suit every different palette. If skiing is your passion than head to the one famous ski resorts of the French Alps, such as Chamonix, Tignes or Morzine.

If you want to relax, soak up some rays and dive into crystal clear water after spending the night partying into the early hours the jet over to the Greek Islands in the south east of Europe. If you want scenic beauty that hasn't been trampled by tourism then head over to Montenegro, a small country in the south east of Europe on the Adriatic Sea that borders Croatia that had amazing beaches and towns riddled with years of history.
