Spring: Sep, Oct & Nov


The snow is receding on the mountains, and while there’s still good skiing in September, it’s on its way out.

Spring blossoms are blooming and once Daylight Saving turns up in late September, Kiwis all over the country are bounding around with a spring in their step. Days are longer and warmer, bringing all sorts outside.

South Island hiking tracks such as the Milford Track are up and running in November as international visitor season hits New Zealand.
