Best time to do Grand Northern?

7 Mar 2013 Ash088 asked


Im looking at doing the Grand Northern in 2014 and was wondering what time of the year people who have done it before would suggest. I have done the Grand Southern in November so was thinking sometime halfway through the year but am trying to decide the best month in terms of weather, seasonal activities etc. any advice would be greatly appreciated!
