When to Visit

New Zealand enjoys a temperate climate, but given its vast range of attractions, the 'best' time to visit depends on the type of holiday you're planning.

Summer, which runs from December to February, affords the warmest weather, perfect for beach breaks or outdoor adventures. Autumn, from March to May, offers mild temperatures, fewer crowds, and striking fall colours, making it a fabulous time to explore the countryside.

The cooler winter months, June through August, are the best times for enjoying winter sports in the South Island highlands, with prices generally cheaper than the summer high season. Finally, spring (September-November) provides a delightful season of blossoming beauty and offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits.
