10 Winter-Friendly New Zealand Trip Ideas

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. The mountains turn to a glistening bright white and you get to see the country as its finest. What's more, hotel prices drop because you are technically travelling out of season – bonus! Another great reason to explore New Zealand in the winter is to experience this unique landscape in almost peace and quiet.
