Common Questions About Luxury Touring.

If you have additional questions, please contact us.

  • When is the best time to visit?

    • Summer: December to March. Book accommodation well in advance due to high demand. The weather is very pleasant at this time of year, especially if you love outdoor activities.
    • Autumn: April – May is a beautiful time of year, often with very settled weather and the famed colours of the trees. Days can be very warm with the evenings and mornings cooler.
    • Winter: June – September will deliver often stunning days, provided you enjoy colder temperatures. Skiing is exceptional in the South Island. Some alpine roads are subject to snow and ice, restricting access for short periods.
    • Spring: September – December is a perfect time to experience the sparkling countryside, there is usually still snow on the mountain tops.
