Switzerland Weather In July
Why To Visit Switzerland In July
The daylight hours are also at their maximum in Switzerland in July, with seven to eight hours of sunlight on average. Longer days ensure that you can spend more time outdoors, discovering the different wonders the place has to offer.
Milder weather also means that you can visit the highest peaks like the Bernese Oberland, Graubünden and Valais without having to deal with extreme weather. Apart from the peaks and snow-capped destinations, the lakes and canyons of Switzerland also become more approachable.
Mild weather offers greater opportunities for going swimming in the lakes and rafting in the rivers, which swell in size in summers. Activities like canyoning also become more popular in summers as you do not have to deal with freezing cold water as you dive off cliffs or float in water pools.
