New Zealand: Winter Sun

Land of the Long White Cloud

New Zealand Winter Sun

As New Zealand lies in the southern hemisphere, its seasons are reversed, so the period from December to March is the New Zealand winter, making New Zealand the ideal winter sun destination. This is a great time to visit, as everything will be in full swing, the main festivals and outdoor activities will be on and the weather will be at its best this time of year, so your winter sun holiday in New Zealand will be a very sunny experience indeed. On the downside, this is also a very popular time of year for both locals and foreign holidaymakers, and some of the more popular destinations will be crowded and the more popular hotels will book up quickly. However, there’s always somewhere you can go to escape the crowds in New Zealand, and with so many secluded sandy beaches, uncrowded and unspoilt countryside and a variety of activites, from jet-boating to bungee jumping to try out, your winter sun holiday in New Zealand won’t disappoint.
