In winter, as opposed to more northerly towns on the Makarska riviera, rain frequently passes over Podgora, making it an ideal climate for citrus fruits, carob trees, grape vines, olives, and other southern plant varieties.
Climbing up Biokovo, you will notice a drop in temperature of 1°C for every 180m of altitude gain. This is more apparent in spring than in autumn.
When Podgora is in the midst of summer heat and its absolute maximum daily high temperature of 40°C, Biokovo will be waiting for you with clean, fresh mountain air free of humidity. In July and August, the average monthly temperature on Biokovo is no higher than 23.9°C.
There is never a lack of ice on Biokovo — you can find it in deep crevices, ice caverns, and caves.
