Peak season

Wellington’s exposed seaside location means that the city is renowned for its windy conditions and is generally cooler than other parts of New Zealand throughout much of the year. The city’s peak tourist season coincides with the summer months of December through to February when domestic visitors are on their long annual break. While the city sees its warmest weather during this period, it can also be notably unpredictable with a seemingly different season every day. If you are visiting during the summer, be prepared for not only inflated hotel prices, but weather conditions of all kinds.

Wellington also sees another peak in visitors during the Easter week holidays, and due to the relatively consistent weather experienced during autumn, together with the beautiful changing leaves, this is a highly recommended season to visit.

Off season

While Wellington doesn’t typically experience much snow, except on the surrounding mountain peaks, its winters do get incredibly cold and this is the wettest season in the capital. Few tourists venture to the city at this time, but if you do decide to brave the cold, you will benefit from reduced flight ticket prices and good hotel deals.

The spring months of September through to November are a great time to visit Wellington if you want the best of the weather, without the crowds. The winds tend to be at their calmest, particularly towards the end of spring, and the daffodils of Wellington ignite the city in colour.

When is the best time to book a flight to Wellington?
