New Zealand is a land that astounds and enthrals you at every turn. Due to its stunning natural beauty and amazing scenery, New Zealand is an ideal destination for the holiday of a lifetime.
Located to the southeast of Australia, within the southern Pacific Ocean, NZ comprises of two islands: the north island and the south island.

Alternatively, you can enjoy stunning city breaks to Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch.
Famously, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, filmed in NZ, showcased the tremendous natural beauty of the country and gave the world a glimpse of everything that you could be expected to see and find whilst holidaying in New Zealand. Ancient kauri forests, glaciers and crystal clear lakes with huge mountain ranges are simply breathtaking.

New Zealand is one of the most diverse countries on Earth as well being one of the best adventure and adrenaline destinations. Whilst the country has some great cities to explore – the likelihood is, if you’re heading, you’ll probably be planning on spending a lot of time outdoors and in the countryside.
Packing strong, sturdy shoes is a must as well as a good variety of layers too (such as light t-shirts, jumpers, short and trousers, as well as rain coats and fleeces). The North Island temperatures can become pretty hot in the summer months (so definitely pack your bathing suit) – contrastingly, on the South Island; you may find the climate changing drastically.
Another packing essential is sun-cream. Whilst New Zealand may not always feel warm – the Sun seems to tan (and burn) skin quicker, so always keep that in mind.
The weather in New Zealand varies greatly depending on the time of year and on your location. The best thing to do is research the locations you plan on visiting so you can find out their individual climates and weather trends.
However, as a general rule, expect winter months (April – September) to be cool and chilly, and expect summer months (December – March) to be warm and pleasant. The seasons are similar to the UK (but the months are reversed) so that’s a helpful tip. One thing to note about New Zealand weather though (when compared to the UK) is that it tends to be a little more extreme at both ends of the scale.
The duration of your stay is more than 60 days, but don't worry that's fine. We just want to make sure you get the best possible price.
