Vitoria is near the Bay of Biscay and the southwestern border of France in the north of Spain. The region is a combination of rugged coast land and fertile wet jungle. Due to its geographical location and the Atlantic Ocean’s influence, Vitoria’s climate is humid with mild temperatures throughout the year and frequent showers in spring and fall. The average temperature is 20°C in summer and 8°C in winter.
Extreme heat can also be experienced for also a few days each summer when strong winds from the south blow through the mountains and temperatures rise because of the Föhn wind.
Choosing a Car
The weather in Vitoria really can be humid enough for you to put the air conditioning on during the spring and autumn months. Most of the hire cars come with it for a small amount extra, and if you are visiting Spain over the summer months we strongly recommend that you get an air cooled car.
