Peak season

New Zealand experiences a relatively mild temperate climate, with distinct seasons that range from cold, snowy winters to warm, sunny summers. December through to February is generally considered the peak tourist season across both the North and South Islands, with both domestic and Australian holiday makers on their long annual break. The long daylight hours are perfect for exploring New Zealand’s many outdoor pursuits and hiking permits get booked out well in advance as visitors descend on the national parks. If you are visiting during this period you should expect inflated hotel and flight ticket prices across the country.

New Zealand’s ski resorts experience their peak tourist season between July and August when snow blankets the landscape. Bookings should be made well in advance if you are planning a ski vacation, with an increased demand for both flight tickets and lodge rooms at popular ski destinations.

Off season

The mild autumn and spring months are ideal for trekking if you want quieter trails and cooler temperatures, provided you don’t visit during the short school holiday breaks. With far fewer tourists across the country, there are some good accommodation deals to be found, and the landscape offers beautiful changing colours during both seasons.

Provided you aren’t travelling to the ski resorts and can handle the chilly temperatures, winter is another quiet time to visit New Zealand, with snow-capped mountainous landscapes all around. Many hotels reduce their prices during this season and you will have many of the national parks largely to yourself.
