The White Ferns will play an eight-match series against the visiting West Indies world champion Twenty20 women's cricket team next March.
New Zealand will host the Windies in three one-day internationals in Christchurch as part of the ICC women's championship, before a five-game Twenty20 international series in Mt Maunganui, New Plymouth and Hamilton.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White says the tour is another important step in the evolution of the women's game in New Zealand.
"There's no doubt that women's cricket is on a roll at the moment," White said.
"We're really keen to build on the momentum created by July's very successful women's World Cup in England.
"It's widely acknowledged that the standard of women's cricket is the best it's ever been and so we're thrilled to be able to showcase our elite women's players competing on the world stage in our own backyard."
The Windies tour will kick-start a big year for the White Ferns, who tour England in the mid-year before the World T20 in the West Indies in November.
Head coach Haidee Tiffen says it is exciting to see the women's programme continuing to fill up with competitive cricket.
"If we want to keep up with the elite sides internationally, we have to be playing top cricket on a regular basis and in different conditions," Tiffen said.
"The West Indies will provide a stern challenge across both formats."
The White Ferns leave at the end of the month for Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, where they will play Pakistan in three ODIs and four Twenty20 internationals.
