When to go?

When to go?

New Zealand is a year round destination but summer and winter are the most exciting seasons for honeymoon adventures. While winter is ideal for skiing and exploring the majestic glaciers, summer is that time of year when you can experience the wildest side of Queenstown and see all those fascinating landscapes featured in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. From December to February, you relax at the beaches or go rafting, kayaking and enjoy all kinds of water sports, while cooler temperatures from March to May create perfect conditions for hiking. From June to August you can hit the slopes and enjoy winter sports and from September to November you will find great weather and explore the great outdoors but without being surrounded by too many tourists.
