Spring / Summer

During the spring and summer months temperatures range from 15'C to 35'C. Light showers and heavy afternoon thundershowers often surprise visitors, and it’s worthwhile packing a few showerproof items of clothing and planning your itinerary accordingly. Evenings are beautifully balmy and are best enjoyed outdoors.

Autumn / Winter

During the autumn and winter months temperatures range from -7'C to 25'C. Sunny, windless days are warm, but light breezes bring the cold air off snow-covered peaks and can drop daytime temperatures into single figures. Nights during the months of June and July often bring sub-zero temperatures so it’s worth ensuring that you bring sufficient warm clothing.
