New Zealand Weather

What to expect of our Seasons

There's no such thing as the wrong weather in New Zealand, just the wrong clothes!
People are always asking us when the best time to visit to New Zealand is and what to expect when it comes to New Zealand weather. And we always say - there's never a bad time to be here! We have four very distinct seasons, from the cold winter months that are perfect for snowboarding and skiing in the Southern Alps, to the warm blossom-filled days of spring, the sunny, blue skies of summer and the clear days and stunning colours of Autumn. The summer and fall weather is perfect for cycle touring and hiking and other activities. Of course, we have some days of rain, but it only magnifies New Zealand's characteristics - throwing stunning waterfalls from high cliff faces, or creating a dramatic backdrop behind the mountains. The weather in New Zealand only enhances the experience. And we always say, there's no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong clothes!
