Best of Adriatic in Late June

Good afternoon, all,

I am signed up for the Best Of the Adriatic leaving June 26. Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia. I am now a bit worried high temps and humidity in this part of the world at this time. Has anyone taken this tour or visited these places late June-early July? Thoughts?

I have done Best of Eastern Europe which ended in Slovenia and Croatia in mid-June. Temps were very nice. But I’m not sure about what it would be like a couple of weeks later. Thank you!

We did that tour at that time of year. Lubljana was hot and humid. We were warned by people in the know that this would be the case for that time of year. We got to Lubljana a couple of days before the tour and stayed at a hotel that had ac. The tour hotel did not. It was a bit uncomfortable at the tour hotel but we survived. You can check whether your tour hotel has ac or not. That being said, the rest of the places we visited were fine weather wise. It was pleasant weather and not humid. We had one day of rain (pouring) and unfortunately it was when we were in Plitvice. We were literally walking through streams in Plitvice. LOL! This is a great tour and you will have a wonderful time.

This year’s first tour hotel (at least for mine in Sept) is Hotel Mrak which is listed as having air conditioning.

Mary and Carol, thank you both for your responses. I checked the Hotel Mrak, our hotel in Ljubljana, and it is indeed listed as having air conditioning!

We took this wonderful tour in Sept. 2018. Our tour hotel was Mrak as well. We arrived 2 days before the tour. The hotel was full so we ended up staying at Meščanka Apartments on the river. Both places had AC, but fortunately the weather was moderate & without humidity. Ljubljana is my favorite European city. Enjoy your tour!

I was on this tour in late June about six years ago. The only place where humidity was unbearable was in Plitvice National Park. The hotel had no AC or a fan. Couldn't open the window because of the mosquitos. Woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat. Thankfully, it was only one night.

Mary reminded me about our hotel at Plitvice Park. It was September and no air conditioning at the hotel. Uncomfortable, but only one night. Other than that just a minor inconvenience. The hike & beauty of Plitvice made up for the lack of AC! Plitvice was a highlight of the tour.

There's a good change it will be quite warm, depends on your tolerance. I did it in early-mid June several years ago. I remember coolish rain at the start in Slovenia - in my pictures I'm wearing a spring jacket. But by Split it was hot (June 15th-ish). Some people just did their laundry during the free time because they didn't want to go into the heat. That might have been a good idea because my main memories of the city are walking down a long road to get to a museum in the blazing sun... I don't even remember the actual museum (though I think we made it there). I can't recall how humid it was. Dubrovnik was warm but not sweltering like Split. At the end of the tour (June 20th-ish) we did a day trip to Montenegro and it was 100F.

This is my fear. I don’t handle humidity and hot weather well. Maybe for a day or two but not throughout an entire trip. Of course, there is no prediction of what the weather will be like.
