Mid June - until end of October. Each month has it's own highlight:

June is a perfect month for hiking, it's still cool but sunny. Best months for bird watching

For all water sport activities, July, August and September are best, becaus the water is "warm". It's never really warm, but we have temperatures arround 18°C in August. Some bays and beaches are even warmer. During those months the chance to see whales is very high.

Indian summer, in October is a beatifull time of the year, very colourfull and still warm. That's the best time to see moose.
