When is the best time to explore New Zealand?
Any time is a great time to explore New Zealand. Our amazing backyard is always amazing, no matter the season. But there are moments in the year when it is an ever better time to travel New Zealand.
Reasons to travel in February
February is awesome. The weather is still great as it's the height of summer. Often the weather is even better than at the beginning of summer in December. Most people are back at work from mid-January to February and normally the majority of tourists will have left the country. The 2020-2021 summer season was already quieter than the years before, which means that this February (and even March) it's the best time to travel New Zealand. A great time to explore your backyard and to see more of New Zealand.
Reasons to travel in March, April and May
Autumn (or Fall) in New Zealand is just awesome. Leaf-changing season is the most colourful season. Explore the South Island and see how Mother Nature has changed the scenery.
Autumn weather in New Zealand is nice with sunny days (and sometimes light-rain). Days are a bit shorter now as evening sets in earlier. It is also the time to carry a jumper with you as it might be a bit chilly at night. Not cold, just chilly. Make the most of autumn in New Zealand and hop on a Stray bus tour. Check out these amazing NZ autumn photos and see the amazing colours.
We are regularly reviewing the global situation and will be doing our best to get back on the road as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.
