Jun 16, 2017

Here are the top ten things to do in New Zealand this winter:   Winter in New Zealand rocks. It's one of the country's most picture-perfect seasons, when much of the South Island is painted with white snow, the North Island is mild and sunny and a bunch of brand new activities appear out of nowhere.  New Zealand is known for its extreme sports and breathtaking landscapes, and wintertime is no exception.

Another great reason to explore New Zealand in the winter is to experience this unique landscape in almost peace and quiet.
