Traveling in 2022: Chatham Island

Chatham Island is the largest island in the Chatham Archipelago in New Zealand, which also includes 9 much smaller islands.
Chatham Island is located in the South Pacific Ocean, 800 km from New Zealand’s two main islands. Therefore, the island is subject to a subarctic, very cold and windy oceanic climate.
The island has an area of 900 km², with a population of 600, most of whom live in the village of Waitangi (where there is a port, shops, a bank and a hospital).

Temperature today in Waitangi: 15 ° c 59 ° f / 13 ° c 55.4 ° f
