where to go in August?

Postby lisakoz » Sat Jun 26, 2010 3:24 pm

Hi there,

I'm looking for somewhere to go in August...my only real stipulation is that it wouldn't be DISGUSTINGLY hot. Any suggestions on where might be good to go? Also, I'd like to keep it fairly budget. I have up to 3 weeks to travel but would ideally go for 2 weeks or so.

Thanks :D

GAP has some amazing tours in South America. It´s late winter then so it´s definitely not too hot in many places at that time of year. Even here near the equator, it´s not hot in the mountains in August (or at any other time of year for that matter). I´m headed to watch humpbacked whales off the coast of Ecuador in August. I do think that it´s pretty hot and humid at the coast in August though, but worth it to me.

I'm doing the Inca Empire in August and there's one spot left. You better hurry!

The other option I can think of, if I had to go in August would be Iceland or Scandinavia (Norway, Finland, Sweden). Up north in August it's almost 24 hours daylight and not really hot.

Im going to Namibia and Botswana on safari overland trip later this year - your 3 weeks would be a great amount of time here. Its the best time for game viewing in August apparently.

Norway in August is incredible! Very pleasant temperatures and the fjordland is beautiful!
