When you’re planning a trip to New Zealand, you’ll hear a lot about the various hiking and adventure outings around the country. New Zealand has plenty of indoor attractions to offer as well though, so you shouldn’t worry that you’ll have nothing to do in the event that it rains on your vacation. Surfing, bungee jumping, and breathtaking hikes are certainly on top of most people’s New Zealand lists, but here too are some fun indoor attractions and activities to keep in mind.

Recommending bars to travelers may not be original, but given the aforementioned focus on outdoor activity in New Zealand, it’s worthwhile to point out that there are some excellent places to grab a drink and a casual bite to eat as well. Auckland’s Bellini, Christchurch’s The Dirty Land, and Queenstown’s Bardeaux are just a few of the noteworthy options in cities dotted around the country. But suffice it to say wherever you may be, if rain starts falling suddenly you will likely be able to duck into a terrific bar. It may even be your best shot at getting to know some of the locals!
All of these options can keep you busy and entertained if it happens to rain during your trip to New Zealand. While some kiwis may consider hiking and adventure sports to be just as fun in the rain as in dry weather, most visitors will like to have some dry options. And the ones above can actually enhance your trip.
