July weather in New zealand 2014
We (family of 5 pax) will be travelling to New Zealand from 7th-20th July (13 days).
We visited Australia around the same time last year and quite liked the winter weather there. It wasn't too cold and a great escape from the Indian summers.
We are looking forward to experiencing beautiful and scenic landscape, adventure sports such as Bungee, skydiving, ballooning etc. A bit of snow sports may be but not too keen as it would be our first time and we know nothing about skiing, snowboarding etc. with parents aged 60+ accompanying us.
We'd be flying in to Auckland and exiting from Christchurch.
Our major concern is if it will be too cold/snowing for adventure sports, scenic places and driving around ?
We saw a beautiful video of the tranzalpine train and loved the landscape. Just wondering how much of the same will be visible during July or will it be snow laden?
The above video perfectly describes our taste. Also advise if the journey is worth it?
