Greece too warm in July/August?

Jump to last reply

Dear all,

We (young couple in their twenties) are thinking of visiting Greece this year. Due to fixed holidays we are limited to July and August during which we plan on spending 3 weeks in Greece.

We plan on going backpacking, island hopping, hiking, biking, somewhat of an active holiday you could say.

As we're not planning on spending all our days sunbathing on beaches or poolsides, all websites we check (including this one) sort of discourage us to visit Greece during July/August because of the high temperatures (with heatwaves up to 40 degrees Celcius).

However, as we were really looking forward to visiting Greece we would love to get some feedback on our chances of a disaster holiday. For example, how big is the chance that there's going to be a heatwave, causing days/weeks of extreme temperatures? What's hiking/biking like in these months, given the fact that we're fairly experienced hikers/bikers?

Any feedback would be highly appreciated!
