Best Places To Travel In June Luxury Galapagos Travel Ker Downey

Galapagos Islands

Scholars and travelers alike agree: April through June bring out the best of both worlds in the Galapagos. The two seasons – hot and dry – interbreed here and produce not only outstanding weather but also incredible wildlife encounters. Traveling in June, visitors will be welcome with such stunning events as blue-footed boobie courtships, sea turtle hatchings, and waved albatrosses laying their eggs on Española.

Glacier Mountain National Park

In the United States, Glacier Mountain National Park is one of the best places to travel in June. Take advantage of Glacier Mountain National Park’s short summer and head out on a road trip on the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road. The most beautiful road in America, it spans 50 miles of scenic wonders – from glacial lakes to cedar forests. It’s only navigable mid-June to mid-September, so get your motor runnin’ and head out on the open road. There’s also 700 miles of hiking trails in the park to stretch your legs.

Lion In Zambia Safari

Southern Africa

June is an ideal time to visit southern Africa in general. You really can’t go wrong with a safari to South AfricaBotswanaNamibiaZimbabwe, or Zambia. South Africa is the quintessential African experience – perfect for first-time visitors and families. Clear skies, sparse vegetation, and dwindling waterholes attract animals looking for water so you can expect excellent wildlife viewing as the animals are easier to spot.  It’s also easy to combine multiple countries in southern Africa into one journey so contact your Luxury Travel Consultant to start planning your summer safari.

The Prix de Diane Longine is more than a simple horse race – it is a highly fashionable statement of elegance and one of the most hotly anticipated events in Europe. Each year, more than 35,000 spectators flock to Chantilly’s legendary racecourse to witness the world’s most prestigious race for glory. Ker & Downey suggests pairing the race with a private tour of Chantilly’s Royal Palace, which boasts Le Nôtre designed gardens and the private apartments of the Duke d’Aumale, whose art collection is second in France only to the Louvre. A visit to the Living Horse Museum in the Grand Stables and a stay at the beautiful Auberge Jeu de Paume will round out the experience.

Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Luxury Safari Ker Downey

Rwanda and Uganda

June is one of the best months to travel to Uganda or Rwanda to trek gorillas. It is one of the driest months for both countries so trekking conditions are better than the wet months and there’s plenty of sun to capture that perfect portrait of a gorilla. You can still expect some rain, but not nearly as much as the wet season.

Best Places To Travel In June Luxury Peru Travel Ker Downey


June in Peru boasts perfect lighting and dry weather. While Machu Picchu might be the greatest draw to the country – and an essential stop for any traveler – we recommend taking time to explore the rest of the country, especially its capital of city of Lima. Here, a lovely mix of European and South American culture collides to create a rich tapestry of colonial architecture and modern Peruvian cuisine. Many of the top restaurants in the world are found here, as well as various authentic, hands-on experiences with the locals, from shopping with a local chef and enjoying a lesson at the Cordon Bleu cooking school, to tasting pisco sours in a garden and sharing dinners with local families in their homes. Definitely take time to taste it all!

Colorado is the ultimate state for nature lovers and outdoor adventurers. There’s something to do outside year-round. If you can’t handle the cold, travel to Colorado in the summer for hiking, white-water rafting, and wildlife spotting in the parks. The days are pleasant and the nights are cool enough to build a fire and roast some marshmallows.
