Spring - September, October and November
Springtime in New Zealand brings the warmer weather which melts the snow-capped mountains and fills up the rivers and lakes and the days become longer. Flowers are in bloom and the lush green landscapes come alive with a vibrant green, lambs fill the fields and whales swim along the coastline bringing so much to see and do during this time of year. The lakes are beautiful and the countryside is in full bloom and vibrant making outdoor activities popular. There are fewer crowds this time of year as the season starts back up again around early November. The weather can still be slightly cold during September and October and windy at times with a slight chance of rain, but for the most part, the sun is shining and warming things up.
