February is the last month of summer in New Zealand. So if your vacation plans include campervan hire in New Zealand, sun, fun and awesome scenery, then head to NZ in February. You won’t be disappointed!
Comfortable Days and Nights
New Zealand weather in February offers plenty of sunshine and a nearly perfect temperature range. The daytime highs can reach the upper 70s (Fahrenheit) with lows in the 50s (Fahrenheit) at night. If you enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking and camping, the weather will keep you comfortable and ready for all your Kiwi adventures. As a bonus, February is a dry month — so there’s little rain to interfere with your campervan hire in New Zealand.
Consider activities such as snorkelling, swimming and surfing at one of New Zealand’s spectacular beaches. Take advantage of the warm sun to indulge all your “fun in the sun” experiences. Or just take time to relax and enjoy New Zealand’s iconic beauty — including those gorgeous summer sunsets.
If you prefer shade, explore New Zealand’s many hiking trails. Enjoy a trek in a native rain forest or to a breathtaking waterfall on a beautiful summer day.
Take a Boat Cruise
A boat cruise is great way to get a sense New Zealand’s amazing splendour. On the North Island, catch a charter from Paihia and explore the Bay of Islands. With 144 different islands, an excursion on the Bay will give you postcard-perfect views of the New Zealand coast. Plus, you’ll get to watch the dolphins swim! After your cruise, wind your way through the North Island’s many vineyards and enjoy some wine tasting.
A trip to the town of Kaikoura on the South Island is another fabulous summertime adventure. Kaikoura is known for its marine life. Take a boat cruise and watch whales, dolphins and seals at play. In addition to the beautiful location along the Pacific Ocean, the town is the crayfish – also called rock lobster – capital of New Zealand. Be sure to try this Kiwi delicacy while visiting.
As summer draws to a close, February weather makes for wonderful and memorable outdoor Kiwi adventures. And whatever you choose to do during your trip, remember to pack your sunscreen! There’s no better way to take to the road and explore New Zealand’s many gems than with a campervan hire and vacation in true Kiwi style!
