Best Time to Travel to Christchurch

Peak Season:

The peak season falls between December and February, the sunniest and warmest time of the year. The sun shines until around 9:30 p.m., and the average highs reach 22 degrees Celsius. Aside from the activities in town, there are several nearby beaches where you can soak up the sunshine and take a dip in the sea.

Shoulder Season:

Spring and fall are often referred to as the shoulder seasons. It’s not too cold and not too hot, as temperatures range between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius. The crowds tend to be thinner at this time, and you may score lower rates on lodging and airfare.

Off Season:

You’ll find cheap flights to Christchurch during the winter months. Though it still remains sunny, the temperatures do drop. The months between June and August have average highs of 12 degrees Celsius and lows of 3 degrees. Many tourists venture west to the slopes in nearby Canterbury to spend the day skiing and snowboarding.
