Best time to go to Breede River Valley

In the Breede River Valley, spring begins in September and marks the end of winter. The winter time is the rainiest of the year and allows visitors to enjoy a roaring river and a lush landscape in spring and early summer. During spring and summer, the region boasts clear skies, hot days, and comfortable evenings. However, this is the busiest time of year for the Breede River Valley. If you’re looking for a good deal, March through May is a good time to visit as the weather is moderate and rain is rare while the region is also less busy!
