    Is New Zealand worth visiting?

    Most travelers find New Zealand to be one of the world’s most rewarding travel destinations. Though the country is not large, New Zealand packs incredible diversity in a small space. You will find volcanoes, glaciers, fiords, braided rivers, enticing beaches, turquoise lakes, ocean cliffs, subtropical rainforest, and rolling wine country.

    What is the best time of year to visit New Zealand?

    The climate in New Zealand is mild, with warm to hot summers and snow rarely falling as low as towns in winter. March and April are our pick for the best months to travel, as they typically offer good weather and fewer crowds than the height of the summer tourist season. However, the best time of year to visit depends on what you want from your holiday.

    Spring weather can be unpredictable, so you could end up with weeks of hot, summery weather followed by weeks of cold rain.

    Summer is warm and sunny, though the months of December, January, and February are often crowded.

    March and April are typically sunny and pleasant, though the nights get cold in April. Mid to late April is the time to visit for fall colors, especially in places like Queenstown and Wanaka.

    May is the quietest month of the year–a transition between summer crowds and the start of the tourist season. This is the time of year to visit if you want good deals and uncrowded spaces.

    And finally, the ski season runs from mid-June to mid-October. Ski towns such as Queenstown and Wanaka are bustling through the winter, while the rest of the country quiets down.
