The climate in Portugal is temperate, with elevation dictating the main variations in weather. The country’s highest temperatures occur only in the comparatively low southern regions, where summers extend from March through October.

The Algarve on the southern extreme of the country enjoys a Mediterranean climate and, while summer is undoubtedly the peak tourist season, visitors come all year round to enjoy the golf and perennially warm weather.

The higher North of the country is a lot wetter than the other areas with an average 140 centimetres (56 inches) of rain annually. This has resulted in a more lush landscape but winters can be cold as well as damp and not good for visitors. Snowfall is common in the mountains of the north and central regions.
