Best Time To Visit New zealand

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

The best time to visit New Zealand for tourists is the summer season. Months from September to February are considered to be the best months to visit New Zealand. February is considered the peak month in New Zealand with an average temperature of 25 degree Celsius. During the summer season in New Zealand, various festivities like Christmas and New Year can also be enjoyed. New Zealand shares the same cycle of seasons as Australia, is 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 the exact opposite to your country. The country experiences summer season from 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 and also considered as the best season to visit 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. best season to visit new zealand

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. November is also seen as the best month to visit New Zealand for a refreshing vacation with friends and family. 

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 at around 20°C-24°C everywhere.

Major Festivals in New Zealand to Attend

NZ has multiple Maori festivals throughout the year. But the summertime specifically has many of them. Therefore, it is also the best time to visit New Zealand for many tourists. NZ also celebrates its holiday season in the summer, unlike the Northern Hemisphere. Pasifika Cultural Festival and the Auckland Lantern Festival are two festivals you should not miss.

    Priyadarshini Kadam

    India

    Priyadarshini's 16 days trip to New Zealand

    I, Jayant Limaye, aged 63, along with my wife Jyotsna, embarked on a journey to Australia and New Zealand spanning from December 18th to January 29th. We opted for a self-driven tour organized by Wonder Bird Holidays, masterfully curated by their representative, Mr. Raunak. Mr. Raunak ensured meticu
    lous planning, covering every detail, from plane tickets to hotel bookings and internal tour visits. The arrangement was so impeccable that we never had any idle moments, as each destination was thoughtfully designed step by step to eliminate any potential challenges. Right from the outset, Mr. Raunak comprehensively explained every aspect of the tour, including plane timings, vehicle pick-up and drop-off schedules, weather conditions at each location, clothing recommendations, coordination with local tours, their timings, approach locations, and parking conditions. The offered 3-to-4-star hotels were of excellent quality, strategically located in city centers for convenient travel. Mr. Raunak conducted a thorough review of the entire tour, addressing all our queries well before its commencement. He remained consistently available via phone to provide guidance. An instance highlighting his proactive approach occurred during our journey from Wanaka to Mount Cook in New Zealand. Faced with an indefinite road closure, Mr. Raunak promptly informed us and suggested an alternative route, allowing us to reach Mount Cook at 5 PM instead of 1 PM, unlike other travelers who waited in Omarama and arrived at 8:30 PM. We commend Mr. Raunak for his swift and decisive actions on that day. His regular check-ins, inquiries about our location and well-being, and unwavering cooperation compelled us to give him a perfect score of 100 out of 100. Thanks to the exceptional service of the Wonder Bird Holidays team, particularly Mr. Raunak, our tour was not only enjoyable but also hassle-free. For anyone contemplating a trip to Australia and New Zealand, we wholeheartedly recommend Wonder Bird Holidays. Once again, heartfelt thanks to Wonder Bird Holidays and Mr. Raunak for crafting such a beautiful and memorable tour experience. Regards, Jayant Limaye. Jayant Limaye HAD A VERY MEMORABLE AND PLEASANT JOURNEY WITH WANDERBIRD AND TRAVEL TRIANGLE

    Himanshu's 14 days trip to New Zealand

    I am from Hyderabad and had contacted Raunak from Wanderbirds online. At first i was a little hesitant in booking from someone online, but as things went forward i can vouch for this guy. Always available on call and ready to help at every point. I must have called him everyday on my trip to NewZeal
    and for something or the other and the response was quick all the time. The trip was very smooth and every minute detail was taken care of and planned well.

    Ishi's 15 days trip to New Zealand

    This is the 3rd trip that I have booked through Travel Triangle and as always they have delivered on my expectations. The agents that we connected to - WanderBird, helped us to draft a beautiful itinerary and took care of every little detail due to which the trip was extremely smooth without hiccups
    . I highly recommend Travel Triangle to travel without hassles. Every experience in New Zealand was unique and very well crafted by the agents as per our requirements. Some of the highlights of our trip were visiting the Hobbiton movie set, hooker valley trek and Bungy jumping. We thoroughly enjoyed the driving through New Zealand and ending our trip with a short stay in Sydney.

    Bhargav's 14 days trip to New Zealand

    I would like to thank the team of HubHoliday ,Mr.Amit Rana in particular and Mr.Vikas as well, for making our honeymoon trip a wonderful memory for the lifetime.The itinerary was perfect to cover both North and South Island highlights in 10days and was also a mix of romantic & adventure getaways.The
    best memories of the trip are as follows: -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise However,I would like HubHoliday to consider the following points as well in order to improve upon the package offered : - The package cost can be revised as I felt after the trip was over that if I had booked all the hotels/flights/activities/transfers given by HubHoliday all by myself,the package cost would come around 3.25/3.5lakhs in total for 2 persons instead of 4 lakhs - the breakup being : Flights international/domestic and visa : around 1.25 lakhs , car in both islands : 15000 ,hotels : around75000 ,activities :around 1lakh . - The hotel in Christchurch should have been better:room was too clumsy for 2 people Anyways,I would definitely go with the friendly HubHoliday team in near future as well given the interest shown by them to improve further once I gave my feedback to them on the package cost. Regards Bhargav -Kaituna river rafting -Hobbiton set -Tranz Alpine train from Greymouth to Christchurch -Self drive -Milford sound cruise

    Surabhi's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    Travel Triangle and hub holidays helped us to plan and customize our tour. We had a really good experience. All the hotels were good. Queens Town properties had a mesmerizing scenic lake and glacier view. We received all the vouchers timely and did not face any issue during our trip. All our hotel
    s were in the central location except for fox glaciar one. We did not have a very good experience with visa however which was done by travel relations. They were not aware of the documents and type of visa and kept bugging us but travel triangle was able to sort it out. Queens town apartments and the view. Glacier helicopter ride Franz joseph Milford cruise and the waterfalls Driving in new Zealand Indian food in new Zealand . It is comparable to indian restaurants.

    Vivek Gupta

    Delhi

    Vivek's 10 days trip to New Zealand

    We booked our New Zealand through travel traingle and hub holidays. Our plan was customised as per our requirements . Hotels, flights, meal, activities , self drive car everything was good. We did not face any issue during our trip. The only set back was Franz Joseph hotel which was 30 mins away fr
    om the main city. Other then that everything was good. We did not have a good experience with the visa team though. They were not aware of all the documents needed and we're not even aware that new Zealand tourist visa is an e visa for Indians, we being in Bangalore had to send them documents couple of time. Also they were rude no customer obsession. The 1 start that I have deducted is solely for travel relations the visa company. At one point we felt we could have done processing for our visa and it would have been much faster. But the experience we had with travel traingle and hub holidays is 5*. New Zealand and it's beauty.
