Winter in Northland

As the economy continues to contract and people tighten their belts, foreign holidays tend to decline, as people look closer to home for their well-earned breaks. As a winter destination, Northland is an excellent choice as it’s far warmer than the rest of New Zealand, and you’ll have so much more choice at this time of year, with fewer tourists to compete with.

Northland Winter Activities

Northland is renowned for its water-based activities, with excellent fishing and plenty of diving locations – two activities that you can enjoy year-round due to the excellent visibility and abundant sea life offered by the sub-tropical waters.

If you want to stay on dry land, an invigorating beach walk will get your heart racing, or head inland to explore the spectacular lush forests where you can view native trees, including Tane Mahuta, the biggest kauri in the world, and wander past breathtaking waterfalls.
