When is the best time to honeymoon in New Zealand?
As long as you're together it doesn't matter where you are, right? But, why not spend your honeymoon somewhere beautiful.
No matter the season, the astounding natural beauty of New Zealand is like something out of a fairytale.
Summer means balmy nights and sunny days. The bright red blooms of pohutukawa trees line the waterfronts in coastal areas while tuis and cicadas sing loudly. You can watch the bright orange hues of the sunset fold into the ocean at dusk.
Summer in New Zealand is the busiest time of the year on both islands. With school holidays and most Kiwis taking extended annual leave get in quick to secure your honeymoon accommodation.
You can tell it's spring when bright yellow daffodils seem to appear from nowhere, newborn lambs flood the paddocks and cherry blossoms flaunt their delicate pink petals.
It's a time for new beginnings and spring in New Zealand is one of the best seasons to visit, with fewer crowds, pleasant temperatures, and occasional afternoon rain.
Perhaps the most colourful season in New Zealand, autumn is when the leaves fall from the trees, the air becomes crisp and New Zealand transforms into a kaleidoscope of rusty browns, burnt oranges and mellow yellows. Autumn is a photographer's dream.
Enjoy the fresh air, blue skies and occasional rain showers in the quieter months of autumn in New Zealand.
Frosts begin to cover the ground and snow begins to fall as the winter months roll in. Snowcapped mountain backdrops and icy lakes make for some dramatic photo opportunities.
Cosy up next to the fire together and sample fresh local food and mulled wine after a day of adventuring. Make the most of fewer crowds during winter in New Zealand.
