Best Time To Go and Weather

New Zealand’s high season generally takes place during the warmer months from November to April, when both visitors and locals take to the great outdoors. Do bear in mind though that New Zealand favours a maritime climate, which means that the weather, especially at altitude, can change dramatically. The cooler months of spring and autumn (October/November, April/May) tend to be amongst the best times to visit, when the crowds are less and the weather generally can be more settled. The summer months, from December to February, are the time to visit many of the local festivals, culinary events and sporting fixtures that take place, but try and avoid the school holiday periods (especially from mid December to mid January). Those hankering for the ski slopes should aim to visit from June to August when the skiing conditions are at their best, but do bear in mind though that many of the more conventional ‘warm weather’ venues may be closed.
