Akaroa - allow 3 hours


Fly from Christchurch and follow the rugged Banks Peninsula coastline. This area is the jewel in Canterbury’s crown. Akaroa is Canterbury's oldest town, as well as being a former French and British colony; it also has a colourful whaling and Maori history.


The charm of this old town, together with the incredible scenery encountered en route has assured Akaroa's popularity as a unique tourist destination. Combine your trip with one of the many other optional activities available such as a cruise on the harbour to see the rarest dolphin in the world, the Hector’s dolphin or visit the Pohatu Penguin Colony. Other optional activities include horse trekking, jet boating, paragliding, sea kayaking and many more. Contact us to arrange these excursions for you. The village also boasts a number of excellent shops, cafés and restaurants.
