It’s wise to check if you need to bring your hay fever medication. The hay fever season can vary from country to country. Also, the amount of pollen varies depending on the climate, season, and plant growth in each country. Below you’ll find information about the likelihood of hay fever at your vacation destination.

Beach vacation and mountains

If you are sensitive to pollen, there are two safe places where you can enjoy without inconvenience: the coast and high mountain areas. Here, the concentration of pollen is the lowest. The pollen season starts later and ends earlier in these locations. Additionally, pollen concentrations are lower in dry areas compared to moderate, humid climates.


For people with hay fever, forested areas are not ideal. Tree pollen is heavier than grass-pollen, meaning it remains airborne longer and occurs in higher concentrations.
