New Zealand in November - Things to Do & Reasons to Visit

Is it your first time in New Zealand and not sure what to do? Check out Best Bits – Things to Do as you sort out the best month to visit New Zealand.

Weather in New Zealand is four seasons in one day. Aotearoa New Zealand is several skinny narrow islands isolated in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Glorious day throughout the year is a promise together with the option of rain throughout the year. 

Seasons are the opposite to Europe, United Kingdom, North America (northern hemisphere) creating a great winter escape for our neighbours in the Far East and beyond. Peak season is summer, December to February.

November is an excellent month to visit New Zealand. The weather is warm enough for outdoor activities with farmers markets generally open for business from late October onwards. Students and visitors on short term work visas are busy indoors meaning places are not experiencing the summer crowds of December and January.
