Best Time To Visit New zealand

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

New Zealand shares the same cycle of seasons as Australia, being located in the southern hemisphere. So if you are a resident of Asia, North America or Europe, then you will find New Zealand seasons to be exact opposite to your country. The country experiences summer season from around December to January, when it is freezing in most other parts of the world, and thus this is the best time to travel to New Zealand. Most of New Zealand experiences temperate maritime climate, being an island country. However, temperature and climatic conditions vary across the country because of diverse topography, which means any time of the year, can be great for a quick trip to the land of Kiwis.

March-May (11°C to 22°C)

March to May is the gorgeous fall or autumn season in New Zealand. It is just when the heat of summer wears off and the crowd of the peak of New Zealand tourist season departs, but the country is still warm and welcoming enough to those who seek to take advantage of the dropping hotel charges. Temperature stays around 17°C-22°C in the North Island and 13°C-19°C in the South Island. April sees the trees change colour into hues of crisp burgundy, before the chill starts to settle in by May. These months are perfect for hiking and trekking.

June-August (16°C to 7°C)

June through August is the best time to visit New Zealand for those who love winters and snowfall. Winter in New Zealand offers some of the best ski fields to swoosh in. Queenstown has a number of them, and it also hosts the Queenstown Winter Festival with a whole lot of activities. The season here is cold and crisp, and although snowfall is present, the chill is not unbearable. Visiting New Zealand in June means getting the best of both worlds – the cold of winter and a bit of leftover autumn.

September-November (19°C to 9°C)

September to November sees the spring season in New Zealand, and also the onset of the next tourism season. Flowers and greens cover the fields yet again, and the flocks of lamb and sheep take over the pastures. Visiting New Zealand in November is ideal for those who want to enjoy a little bit of summer and winter both, and that too at cheaper rates than the summer season.

December-February (25°C to 12°C)

This is the best time to go to New Zealand. Summer is in full swing by January, bringing in the warmest temperatures over both the islands. However, the weather is quite pleasant and static around 20°C-24°C everywhere.

Major Festivals in New Zealand to Attend

NZ has multiple Maori festivals throughout the year. But the summer time specifically has many of them. NZ also celebrates its holiday season in the summer, unlike the Northern Hemisphere. Pasifika Cultural Festival and Auckland Lantern Festival are two festivals you should not miss.

Monsoon Season in New zealand

There is no such fixed monsoon season in NZ. Winter receives enough precipitation in the form of snow, and from March to May, there is some scattered rainfall.

    • Trip to Delhi

      I had booked this tour package from Traveltriangle one month before.Our travel planner from Deejohn Mr Manoj was very responsive to my questions and requests for itinerary changes too.I'm satisfied with Deejohn’s service. Deluxe hotel at Jaipur exceeded our expectations but we were disappointed with Delhi and Agra Hotels, could have been better. Agra tour Guide was demanding excess tips but guides in Delhi and Jaipur were polite and well mannered. We had a great driver Mr Paul for all 4 days were friendly and courteous.Paul cared for us the whole trip.Overall very happy with this tour and will recommend to my friends and relatives.

    • Trip to New Zealand

      The support from Kusum and her team was great. Right from the hotel / flight vouchers, intra city travel to visa assistance and forex, everything was smooth. They were always available throughout and were giving us daily updates on our itinerary. The only thing I felt could have been slightly better is the itinerary. While it was a short trip of 7 days to Zurich, Salzburg and Prague; few things in the itinerary were jam packed and were not feasible to do. Otherwise no complaints, was very happy with Centaur vacations. One word of caution to fellow travellers to Europe, it was hot and sultry in europe and the hotels don't have ACs there so please book accordingly.

    • Trip to Singapore

      Very good service by VRM & TRIANGLE TRAVEL. When we didn't receive code of swings of Fire, we contacted VRM agent. He quickly helped us & we could get tickets. Some improvement in some dinner restaurant is required. Pre-tour communication was also excellent. Similar experience about our Maldives trip. Thank Triangle Travel & VRM. Cloud Forest is ultimate & Must see. Jewel at Changi airport is also new concept.

    • Trip to Delhi

      Everything is picture perfect..! Special thanks to the Cab Driver he's perfect..! Great follow up by travel triangle and trip sailer people..! Every now and then I've been receiving messages from travel triangle whether everything is fine or not which is a very good thing for a customer when spending lot of money..! Everything went according to the plan and the hotels are too good except the Delhi hotel..! One suggestion from my end is that please reduce the package cost it's little bit high that's it :) Had a great time..! Go ahead with travel triangle you'll love it .! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Every single second is a memory!!!

    • Trip to Italy

      This was the first time I booked a trip through travel triangle (Travel mastezs) to Italy. Since this was a new travel company for me, I was a bit skeptical initially. Must say, Arpita and Amit Chandra from travel masterz made the entire process effortless for me. Starting with explaining what is best option for us in terms of best locations to cover, minimum duration required, hotel recommendations, sight seeing places, visa assistance (in terms of helping me put together all the necessary documents), keeping me up-to-date until the end of my travel. Checking constantly on whats app if everyone was going well. Arpita also helped with pre-poning a day tour as I wanted to accommodate another personal tour on the initial planned date which was not part of the itinerary which i could not have been able to visit, if not for Arpita changing the schedule in the last moment as per my request. Overall great experience in Italy. Many thanks to Arpita and team from travel triangle who are extremely professional and are well aware of the places without making false promises and being honest upfront in terms of what to expect.

    • Trip to Delhi

      Bering a travel guide, it would have been better, if it was told in advance that their will be mad rush in Haridwar on account of the kagadimela, apart from road blockages. The advance information would have helped us to avoid unnecessary extra travel, wastage of time and money apart from long sitting torture for the entire families which has traveled almost 24 continuous hours to reach our natives. If their was advance information, we would have chosen separate tour through your portal only

    • Trip to Kerala

      I planned my trip 4 day trip to Kerala with the help of Mr. Avinash. He is a great guy with the right understanding of the traveler's mindset which I think is great quality. He is very patient in explaining every small detail and he is always available to customers. I took this package only because of the confidence that I got I after spoke to him. I strongly recommend him if you are planning a trip to a new place. I have had small room allotment issue in Munnar - Ayur green spa resort ( Awesome place to spend a couple of days) but Mr. Avinash solved it in no time. Thanks again Mr. Avinash and Guruji Travels. Cheers!

      No proper communication.No proper arrangement of travel. So many agent involved but no proper planning made for trip. Driver is good but since he is also new for ooty so he couldn't help us.its duty of agent actually to provide good quality of service by providing proper planning.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling. Overall - we liked the trip and it was indeed a memorable ones. Agent has been very kind and humble. The stay options are appropriate and the itinerary were transparent. We felt the drivers are polite but need to be socially moving too as we would be new to the place during our visit. Kindly inform the drivers to explain the itinerary for the day and explain a bit about the place which we are planning to visit - something like that. Silent drivers would not help the travelers. Genuinely, the rest all - very good and Excellent.
