The weather in Te Anau in winter is cold with frosty mornings and clear days. Rain is reasonably common and occasional snow. Summer weather is generally hot and dry with temperatures averaging about 20 degrees celcius.

A wide range of accommodation are available and the area boasts about 4,000 beds from hotels, lodges, motels, homestyle bed and breakfast through to backpacker, budget and holiday park accommodation.
