Akaroa Harbour and Banks Peninsula Eco Marine Harbour Cruise
Wander the charming village of Akaroa, and opt for either a harbour cruise or dolphin swim on this small-group tour from Christchurch. Start with a scenic drive through the magnificent Banks Peninsula where you’re treated to summit views of Akaroa Harbour, the Canterbury Plains and the distant Southern Alps.
Feel the thrill of rafting one of New Zealand’s most scenic and exciting stretches of whitewater in the heart of the South Island.
Experience breathtaking views of the Southern Alps during a horseback ride along the banks of the Waimakariri River – just outside Christchurch. This 1.5-hour horse trek, led by an experienced local guide, accommodates both beginning and experienced riders.
Strolling through these 30 blissful riverside hectares of arboreal and floral splendour is a consummate Christchurch experience. Gorgeous at any time of the year, the gardens are particularly impressive in spring when the rhododendrons, azaleas and daffodil woodland are in riotous bloom.
A must-visit for anyone interested in understanding the impact of the Canterbury earthquakes, this compact museum tells stories through photography, video footage and various artefacts, including the remnants of Christchurch Cathedral’s celebrated rose window and other similarly moving debris.
