Weather to go

New Zealand’s climate is largely temperate, and in some places the weather can go from one season (e.g. sunny) to another (e.g. rainy) in the space of a day! The inland alpine areas can be as cold as minus 10 degrees celsius and snowy in winter (June - August), and the ski season begins in June, running through September and sometimes into October. 

High season is during summer, from December to February, with temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees celsius, and the UV rays are strong - best to pack sunscreen if you’re travelling there in summer.
