Best Time to Fly to New Zealand

Peak season:
December, January and February (New Zealand’s summer months) are the best time to travel. Average temperatures are between 68 and 86 degrees (F).

Why you should take a flight to New Zealand

New Zealand is surrounded by mountains, fast-flowing rivers, lakes, forests, and miles-long beaches. Travelers seeking peace, nature, and paradise book flights to New Zealand to gain tranquility from the general chaos of everyday life. Thanks to an excess in tourism, the country’s economy continues to grow at a steady pace. Add tourism to New Zealand’s main export business — meat, wool, and dairy — and the country continues to thrive and produce. 

Travelers booking trips to New Zealand will find there is plenty to taste. Dine on a dozen different varieties of fish and shellfish fresh from the New Zealand waters. The vast land mass and farming gives diners some of the best prime beef, lamb, venison, and ostrich. And what meal is complete without a glass of wine. New Zealand wines are revered around the world and continue to be praised by some of the best sommeliers in the world. 

Once your flight to New Zealand arrives, take in some hiking, rafting, swim with the dolphins, whale-watch, and, of course, take a turn at bungee-jumping. New Zealand is a country of adventures just waiting for travelers to set foot and explore.

New Zealand climate

The New Zealand climate changes throughout the year. There are mild winters and warm, humid summers on the North Island, while the South Island is colder and has huge glaciers and snowfields. The mountains get snow in the winter and the west coast sees most of the rain. Summer lasts from November to April.
