Best time for visiting Newfoundland?
« on: April 11, 2014, 03:30:41 AM »

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that the first half of the summer in Newfoundland is usually more rainy than the second half.
On the other hand, the best time to catch the floating icebergs, is May or June. I wonder if this past cold winter and the late spring will extend the iceberg season into July.

We were in St.Johns (and environs along the Avalon Peninsula) July 11-18, 2009 and the weather was sunny and warm. We were told that the last icebergs had passed by a week or two before. A great part of Canada to visit and experience!

The photo is from Nfld even though it is labelled Germany.

The best time for icebergs is spring/early summer but you might also need a mosquito net! I went in late August a couple of years ago and had fantastic weather all over the island. There is a lot more than icebergs to shoot in Newfoundland. In my opinion it has some of the best coastal landscape in Canada.

If Newfoundland is like other parts of Canada, you will face the black flies in late spring and early summer. Nasty, biting creatures! They don't really affect your photography, they just make you miserable.

Went in 2010 at the end of August into September and had great weather sandwiched between two hurricanes! Go, enjoy and eat and picture well!

Apparently, they are having there great weather now. Sun and cloud, temperatures in mid twenties, and no rain.

Like several others have said, we were there in late August/ early September about 10 years ago.  Had great weather, no black flies, less tourists, and an added bonus that all the berries were out - blueberries all over the island as well as bakeapples and partridgeberries.  The province is just beautiful.  Make absolutely sure to try the partridgeberry jam.

Unless you love bugs, go in August.
