Peak Season: (Dec−Feb) This is the ideal time to visit New Zealand if you want to indulge in outdoor activities. Most of the public places are busy during this period of time.
Shoulder Season: (Mar-Apr) The weather is warm during this period, ideal to visit the beaches as there is not a lot of rush. There are fewer tourists during this period compared to that at the beginning of the year.
Off-season: (May-Aug) It's that time of the year when the adventure activities are in full flow, the Southern Alps is one such place where you can try out skiing.
