Suggested itineraries in June
For guaranteed sunny summer conditions, browse our itineraries to see where’s hot (but not too hot) in our exotic destinations. We can recommend a trip to Java, Indonesia, where June is one of the cooler months within the hot, dry season. It’s an ideal time to soak up some culture at the awe-inspiring Hindu and Buddhist temples or view Mount Bromo, Java’s feisty active volcano. The region on Ladakh in Northern India is a fantastic choice for trekking at this time of year; snow has disappeared, roads are open and the sun shines warmly.
