A Guide to New Zealand

New Zealand is blessed with spectacularly beautiful landscapes, vast mountain ranges and sweeping coastlines. While rich in experiences for lovers of the great outdoors, New Zealand has something for everyone. Add to this a fascinating heritage of Maori culture, world-class sporting events, a passion for food and wine, and as location for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Hobbit, and you have a beautiful country bursting with holiday possibilities.

When to go

You can visit New Zealand at any time of the year. Summer and winter temperatures vary by only about 10°C over most of the country, making New Zealand an ideal holiday destination all year round. New Zealand has four quite distinct seasons. Spring (September to November), Summer (December to February), Autumn (March to May) and Winter (June to August). In summer, there’s plenty of sunshine and activities in and around water including rafting, snorkelling and kayaking. In winter you’ll find snow on the mountains and excellent skiing.
