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 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.
