Newfoundland in early June: advice sought

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of a week or so in the Avalon area in early June, roughly June 5-12. I've found good advice on many aspects of this potential trip, but my searches for the following specific information have failed:

Is June (or, better, early June) typically a rainy time? I've found average temperature data by month but nothing on typical precipitation amount (weather underground does not have it, nor do several other places I've checked).

Are black flies typically an issue in early June? I've searched the web quite a bit, but I find very few specifics about dates when they are common. Also, even if they're at their "worst", are they really a deal-breaker, or does a little DEET go a long way? (I know plenty of people who love the Adirondack Mountains in NY but who won't go there in June due to the flies.)

I have a pretty good idea of things I'd like to do while there, but are there any other tips for traveling there in early June? Things I shouldn't (or should) miss that might be specific to that time, etc.? I hope to be outside hiking/walking much of the time, and I will probably have a car.

Thanks in advance for your help.
