February is still summer over here. You’ll only be in the North Island so it’s usually a little warmer than the south(where I am) so the temps should be be somewhere between 15 and 25 degrees.
Thanks for your reply GEM, I think I will just take a hoodie and some jeans….
You will possibly be too hot in those haha. It is scorching hot at the moment. Everyone is in a dress in the north island at the moment
haha sorry its taken so long to reply, BTW like the Ferrari!
So you saying I should take a dress??? =P
I live in the north island of NZ i can tell you with 100% accuracy that it is still warm here. Haven’t worn a jersey yet. Have fun on ur tour
Im heading over in August this year – i know it will be cold/FREEZING but should i pack any summer clothes – Shorts? Also what are the clubs/pubs like when it comes to clothing? Closed in shoes a must or sandles/thongs allowable with shorts?
Well I just got back from NZ about 3 days ago, It was warm during the day and cool and night, Im glad I took my jumper and jeans….I needed the Jumper first up, but that was because I was up at about 5 in the morning…..I usually took it off about 10 or so So August I would def take along something.
When I went to all the pubs, I always had jeans and closed in footwear, but thats just me. There were guys with cargo sorts of things and pluggers….(Thongs) Hope this helps Jamie!
Thank you very much! It does help – i dont think i will pack any summer clothing except for swimmers (for the hot spring/pool). So you missed the quake?? Hope you enjoyed your time over there – I cant wait!!
Did I enjoy my time??? im kicking myself I didnt take the rest of the week off and do the south Island with the gang!!!!
The thing I didnt pick up on, is that the Sun and steam tours are all tacked onto the Grand Explorer, just that you leave the group at the end of your 5 days….I originally thought it was your own little group but it isnt…..
Good luck with it, you should have a ball! I sure did!
