Holidays in New Zealand

Located to the southeast of Australia, within the southern Pacific Ocean, NZ comprises of two islands: the north island and the south island. A number of different holidays can be enjoyed in New Zealand, whether you want to simply relax and take in a trip to the numerous beaches, or to the head to the lakes and mountains where skiing and watersports is high on the agenda. 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.

Essential Information

New Zealand Cities

Holidays in New Zealand have never been so varied. Choose a city break in New Zealand’s three biggest cities Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. It only takes a few moments to fall in love with this magnificent country and once there you’ll never want to leave. A trip to NZ allows you to explore and enjoy at your own pace. There are city destinations such as Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington whereby you’ll be able to enjoy the numerous cafés and restaurants, and of course, the lively cultural scene involving numerous art galleries and museums.

New Zealand Countryside

New Zealand is a treasure trove of natural beauty. See the vast mountain ranges that cover the Southern Island and travel through them by railway in order to witness the natural beauty of the country which was setting for the Lord of the Rings fantasy trilogy. Experience the wonder of the North Island’s volcanic plateau or whale watching off Kaikoura as well as the incredibly friendly and welcoming population. New Zealand really is a country that has it all.


Packing Tips

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.

Best Time to Travel

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
