2024 & 2025 New Zealand Holidays
From the bubbling mud pools and thermal springs of the North to the glaciers and plunging fjords of the South, New Zealand is a land of incredible contrast.
At FREEDOM, we’ve been designing holidays to this beautiful country for over 20 years and we would love to help you plan your NZ adventure.

How Long Should I Spend in New Zealand?
Most people visit New Zealand for between two and four weeks, with many choosing to break up the 23 and half hour flight with a stopover in Singapore, Dubai or Los Angeles.
It is also popular to combine a trip to New Zealand with Australia or a South Pacific island such as Fiji or the Cook Islands. At FREEDOM, we’re tailor made specialists and would be happy to arrange a multi destination itinerary for you.
What’s the Best Time to Visit New Zealand?
No matter the season, New Zealand always has something special to offer.
The summer months are the opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning December to February brings the warmest of the New Zealand weather. Sunshine hours are high and rainfall minimal – a perfect escape from the UK winter!
The autumn months of March to May are characterised by settled, sunny days – it’s a lovely time to travel. The slightly cooler temperatures make for perfect hiking and cycling weather, but it’s still hot enough to enjoy a dip in one of New Zealand’s refreshing lakes!
Snow graces the South Island mountain tops during the winter months from June to August, an alpine enthusiast’s dream. New Zealand’s ‘winterless North’ experiences milder temperatures, meaning it can be a great time to visit local attractions as chances are you’ll have them to yourself!
The spring months fall between September to November when the country erupts with new life. Flowers bloom, lambs are born and ‘waterfall season’ arrives – it’s a vibrant and inspiring time to be in New Zealand.
