Looking for an idea for a summer holiday? If you’re into fitness and wellness, a wellness retreat will be an ideal vacation. Traveling and looking after your wellbeing? Nothing sounds better than that.
Wellness retreats are a relaxing getaway that allows you to explore and focus on your health. However, when traveling during the summer months, you have to be mindful of which destinations you choose.
Of course, every county has their own seasonality patterns. Therefore, you need to pick a country with optimal weather from June to September. In addition, you have to be aware of the high season for tourists and whether or not you want to endure the crowds.
We have rounded up a list of what we think are the best countries to visit during the summer months. Especially if you are going on a wellness retreat!
Bali only has two seasons a year: the rainy and dry seasons. Obviously, you do not want to go to Bali just to get rained on every day. So, you have to go during the dry season, which is in between April and October. However, the weather between June and September is optimal as it ranges between 70-85F. Bali is a heatwave or on the cooler side outside of those months.
However, these months are the island's peak tourism season. Although, even with a spike in visitors, the island doesn't seem crowded. But be aware that July and August witness a spike in room rates, so book your vacation early to avoid exorbitant costs.

Peru is located in South America, so you may think it would be too hot to visit from June to September. However, it is on the southern side of the equator, so June to September is considered their winter. It is the driest season that Peru experiences, making it a great time to visit, especially if you’re planning to explore the outdoors. However, it does get busier in the months of July and August, so if you want to avoid the crowds, look into planning your trip in June or September.

If you are someone who prefers dry and sunny days, visit Ecuador from June to September. It is almost guaranteed that your days will be filled with sunshine over these months. It is undoubtedly the best time to visit the country, not only for the weather. During these months, you get better views of the superb panoramic views of Ecuador’s grand mountains and volcanoes. It is also the best time for hiking, climbing and other outdoor adventures.
As it is the best overall time to visit this country, it also means that it is the busiest season. This means that June through September is considered a high season, and there is a higher demand for tourism services. Therefore, you can expect during these months that everything will be generally busier and possibly more expensive due to higher demand.

The summer months (June-August) are the best time to visit Iceland. Travelers during this time get to experience long daylight hours, 70-80°F weather and a dry climate. It is a beautiful season to experience the island and all it offers.
The weather makes the country prime for hiking and other outdoor experiences. Want to visit the Blue Lagoon? You will more likely have a better experience there during the summer months due to the weather. As well, many people visit Iceland to see the beautiful Northern Lights. Luckily for summer travelers, they will be more visible from June to August.
