    Not that cold for past 3 years. Maybe it suits your travel planner in terms of getting availability. Soft season in June.

    Being here in June, I can only say how our time and weather were. You go out at 5:30 am, and it was cold. We needed to layer as the day developed...we simply removed layers. LOVED it!
