International vacation spots with low pollen counts

Vacation spots for allergy sufferers

We did some research and compiled a list of international vacation spots located in Europe with low pollen counts during the summer months:


Consider a city break in Vienna! The city is not only considered to have one of the lowest pollen counts in Europe, but is also the home of the 7DROPS technology! Urban development planted a lot of green canopy and trees that do not produce pollen, which makes sight-seeing in Imperial Vienna very comfortable for pollen allergy sufferers.

Canary Islands/Spain

The Canary Islands – Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Graciosa – enjoy a year-round warm climate with lots of sunshine. Allergy sufferers will enjoy a sneeze-free holiday thanks to the clean sea breeze, and a low pollen count due to hot temperatures.


Those who want to escape the summer heat might enjoy a trip to Scotland. Due to heavy rainfall, pollen season in Scotland is short. Additionally, the moorlands and mountain terrains are low pollen areas, perfect for an allergy-free hike.


Barcelona combines city life with a breezy beach front. For pollen allergy sufferers that means enjoying the coastal lifestyle of the Spanish metropolis and breathe in clean, allergy-free air courtesy of the sea breeze.

West coast of France

Travelers looking to enjoy French some culture and cuisine should hit up the beautiful West coast of France, where pollen counts during hay fever season are generally low. Note: The South of France and the French Riviera have particularly high pollen counts and should be avoided.

Greek islands

Enjoy a breezy, no-sneeze holiday on one of the many Greek islands – compared to inland areas such as Athens, islands such as Kos, Crete, or Corfu are relatively pollen-free and perfectly enjoyable destinations for allergy sufferers.


The Westerly winds blowing over the golden beaches of the Algavre help to keep pollen counts down and create a relaxing environment for hayfever sufferers. For an even more remote location, consider Madeira islands for a great allergy-free vacation.
