New Zealand Travel GuideWhen to visit New Zealand
New Zealand offers an enjoyable vacation climate any time of the year. The busiest time to visit is during the summer months of December through February, when students are on vacation from school. Avoid the rush of local crowds by traveling in the spring (October through November) or fall (March through April). Hiking in the mountains attracts a large number of sightseers, primarily during the summer since many trails close due to adverse conditions in the winter.
