When to go
Generally visitors to New Zealand like to come in the Summer for obvious reasons The summer lasts from November to March and is the busiest time of the year when residents of New Zealand are taking a break themselves especially around Christmas and New year when everyone heads of for a break to the mountains or the beach. Accommodation can get fully booked so its best to book early. If you are planning to hire a vehicle and drive around New Zealand especially to major resorts around this time, remember to allow yourself enough time and if possible leave early if the day you plan to leave is a holiday.
An alternative if you don?t want to come during the summer time are the months of late spring (September ? October)
