New Zealand’s climate is rich and diverse, varying from warm subtropical in the north to cool temperate climates in the south. The two islands have 12 distinct climate zones. New Zealand also experiences severe alpine conditions in the Southern Alps. Given that the mountains run the length of New Zealand in a North-South orientation, there is great variation in weather depending on what side of the range you are on. The West Coast of the South Island is the wettest area whereas 60 miles east of the mountains is the driest area.

The coldest month of the year is July (~35°F/1°C average) and the warmest is usually January/February (~73°F/23°C average). Be prepared for a range of weather, temperature, and precipitation.

Such a treat to experience NZ through local's eyes

2 months ago

What an incredible trip! Our guides Ed and Summar were fantastic - both extremely knowledgable and passionate about the area. It was such a treat to experience NZ through local's eyes. Every day of our trip offered so much variety... it was clear that the itinerary was thoughtfully curated to offer the best 10 day experience possible. Our accommodations were lovely and unique, and the food was amazing! I hope Wildland continues to offer more tours in New Zealand. There is so much to experience in this beautiful country!

Extraordinary

3 months ago

This was my 2nd trip with Wildland Trekking and in both cases the guides were the main reason for choosing this company. Their knowledge, experience and passion for the outdoors, as well as their ability to share it others was extraordinary.
