Frequently Asked Questions about New Zealand

Find out all of the answers to your burning questions on traveling in New Zealand

What are the best months to go to New Zealand?

The best time for visiting New Zealand is usually summertime-early fall; however, bear in mind that seasons in the destination are opposite to those in the Northern Hemisphere, which makes December - March the best months to go to New Zealand. These months provide longer days with plenty of daylight for you to explore the awe-inspiring rugged sceneries. It is also the time when the weather is pleasantly warm, even though rain still occurs. However, rainfall in New Zealand is inevitable during any time of the year. While summer months provide the highest temperatures, March might be the best time for a visit as the crowds of visitors start to disperse, and you can marvel at the sights without having to push through or wait in lines. For the most accurate predictions of the best months for visiting New Zealand, it is best to decide upon the part of the island you are planning on traveling to and check the weather forecast accordingly.

What is needed to visit New Zealand?

Packing for New Zealand means packing for all sorts of activities and occasions and all sorts of weather conditions. Even though weather forecasts come in handy while packing for any type of vacation, the weather can often be unpredictable, and it's always better to be ready and safe than sorry. Therefore, make sure to pack not only warm and comfortable clothing but also suitable footwear since New Zealand is perfect for hiking, trekking in nature, or walking around the authentic streets soaking up the ambiance. Waterproof pieces and an umbrella are also a must-have since rainfall is not unexpected during any time of the year. In addition to the comfy apparel for outdoor activities, you might want to throw in something more festive, especially if you are thinking of exploring the nightlife in the cities. Also, don't forget to pack the usual travel essentials and make sure to grab your camera charger as the sceneries in New Zealand will undoubtedly make you want to photograph its every corner.

What language do New Zealanders speak?

The official language in New Zealand is Māori - the language of the indigenous Māori people; however, the language spoken by the majority of people in NZL is English. Did you know that New Zealand Sign Language is the second official language in the country? Back in 2006, New Zealand became the first country in the world to establish a sign language as the official one.

Can I drink the tap water in New Zealand?

Unless there are temporary public warnings, tap water in New Zealand generally is safe to drink. You can, however, boil it to be safe, but it is not proven to be necessary.

What is the rainy season in New Zealand?

Sadly, the rain season in New Zealand is always. Even though the precipitation levels depend on the month, you can expect rainfall throughout the entire year. It is worth mentioning that the weather conditions and rain expectancy vary in different parts of the island; for instance, southern and western regions tend to be more rainy and windy. Also, rainfall is more likely to be heavier in wintertime, except for the extreme south, where it tends to be this way throughout the year. All in all, wherever in New Zealand you are planning on traveling, make sure to pack a water-resistant jacket and waterproof footwear, and the so-called rain season will not have an impact on the New Zealand tour of your dreams.
