Trips and Tours to Christchurch

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. Find your perfect day out in Christchurch with our range of excursions that are ready to book online in an instant.
