In the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes that hit in 2011, Christchurch is a city of creative renewal and inspiring urban planning. It has traditionally been New Zealand's most English-feeling city, with punting on the Avon River borrowing from the Cambridge tradition and a temperate climate reminiscent of the British Isles. The South Island's largest city is also the gateway to the stunning Canterbury region, known for its glittering lakes and snow-capped mountains. So you'll find plenty to keep you occupied outdoors with excellent hiking, skiing, rafting and all manner of activities on offer.
