When is the best time to fly to George?

Peak season 

The climate in George is relatively warm throughout the year and many tourists are flying there to indulge in hiking and outdoor activities. George is situated by mountains and forests making it an ideal location for tourists who enjoy the outdoors. May to November are very popular times with people hoping to catch glimpses of whales along the coast however, these are also the winter months so it can be wetter. You’ll still manage to find cheap flights to George although you’ll need to book slightly earlier in the year if you intend to visit during the whale watching season. 

Off Season 

Although May to October are the winter months, whale watching is best seen then. The summer months bring lots of hikers and backpackers who want to enjoy the outdoor scene which is on offer. Despite this you’re more likely to find cheaper accommodation during the winter but flights to George won’t fluctuate too much.
