With such a termperate climate, anytime is great for a ride!

New Zealand has temperate climate, usually warmer during the summer with colder winters – but without large temperature extremes and rain falls throughout the year. Therefore, the best time to travel is probably throughout the whole year.

In fact, New Zealand’s landmass covers a lot of latitudinal lines, which is why it can be warm in the North while it’s freezing cold in the south. Consequently, the North Island is more pleasant than the South Island in winter. Nevertheless, people love the South Island in winter, because then the Southern Alps are all covered in glistening white that reflects in the deep blue lakes.
