Itinerary highlights
De Madrid al cielo – from Madrid to heaven is what the Madrileños say in a proud almost holy way. The blue sky, the fresh but sunny winters and early springtime can really make you understand the expression. Madrid is the proud capital of Spain and also one of Europe´s biggest cities. An urban melting pot of people, culture, artists and more…but also many faces of one Madrid. There are vast differences between barrios (different city districts) that gives you a feeling of many small regional cities put together to one. Madrid is trendy and has managed to come up with a gourmet and culture revolution the last years, and you will get to know a friendly but also trendy city. We follow the footprints of Almodóvar on a walking tour, we enjoy art & music, hook up for lunch at landmark fusion restaurant El Flaco with Andy Boman and much more. On this 5 nights/ 6 day tour we also explore the wine appellation D.O. Madrid, west of the city close to the Gredos mountains, with a walking tour in the beautiful and wild settings. Eco and close to nature winemaking with old Garnacha wines. Before going back to Madrid we also spend some well invested time in mid eve town of Ávila.

Read more about this tour!

Due to Madrid’s high altitude of 650 metres, it experiences quite different temperatures in the summer and the winter. The most pleasant warm weather falls between May and mid July when average temperatures are between 20 and 32 degrees Celsius (68°F – 90°F).

Towards the end of July, and throughout August, it can get hot with temperatures sometimes reaching 40 degrees Celsius (100°F). Night-time temperatures remain around 18 degrees Celsius (64°F). However, the climate in Madrid is low in humidity, therefore making the high temperatures easier to tolerate.

September is a pleasant month, with temperatures back down to around 25 degrees Celsius (77°F). October is also still fairly warm with an average daytime temperature of 20 degrees Celsius (68°F) and is still a pleasant time to visit.

The weather in Madrid is predominantly dry, but that doesn’t mean that rain can be ruled out. Especially in the winter months. Do bear in mind that these temperatures are averages, and the weather may fluctuate from the normal
