sand flies in February

Jump to last reply

So after several years of waiting, we've finally booked our trip to New Zealand for next February/March. Yay!!

Now I have a question about sand flies. People obviously love to visit New Zealand, so these flies must not be as obnoxious as they sound. Or I hope so anyway.

I had thought they were mainly on the west coast, but now it sounds like they're everywhere!!!

Here's a list of where we're going--just how much misery are we likely to run into from these little fellows?

Otago Peninsula
Queenstown
Milford Track (I'd expected lots of sand flies here!)
Mt. Cook
Arthur's Pass
Mapua/Abel Tasman/Golden Bay area
Wellington
Rotorua
Auckland

Thanks!!
