When to go

New Zealand is a year-round destination. In summer visit the beaches, rivers, National Parks and marine wildlife. In spring and autumn the countryside is bursting with colours and the weather is mild but with more rainfall. In winter experience clear, crisp days as well as rainfall especially in the North Island. In the deep south admire the snow-capped alpine ranges.
