4 Day Christchurch Family Getaway

An interactive, fun and educational short break including the International Antarctic Centre, punting on the Avon and a trip to Akaroa.

TOUR OVERVIEW
From the beaches to the Southern Alps, Christchurch and the Canterbury region has plenty of entertainment and activity ideas to suit all the family.

No visit to Christchurch is complete without a visit to one of NZ’s best loved family attractions. The International Antarctic Centre provides a fun, interactive and exciting experience for all ages. Your admission also includes a ride on the Hagglund, an amazing all-terrain, amphibious vehicle used by the scientists based in Antarctica. At the Penguin Encounter, you’ll share the magic of the Little Blue Penguins. You can view these little birds up close in their natural themed environment from a combined indoor & outdoor viewing area. The whole family will enjoy the 4D Extreme screening of ‘Ice Voyage’, an exciting 4D experience that will take you on a simulated cruise to Antarctica with unexpected excitement and adventure from the 4D special effects wrapped over the 3D movie.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the unique experience of a ride on a traditional Cambridge style punt on the famous Avon River. Your Edwardian punter will guide you quietly past trailing willow trees, woodlands and leafy banks as you admire the beauty of Hagley Park.

At the historic french village of Akaroa Harbour, cruise around an extinct volcanic crater and view incredible scenery and stunning wildlife. Your tour aboard a luxury catamaran will be fully narrated by your skipper who has extensive knowledge of the nature, wildlife and history of the area. Highlights include the sighting of the Hector’s Dolphin, one the world’s smallest and rarest. You’ll also catch glimpses of NZ Fur Seals basking on the rocks, the White Flippered Blue Penguin, the endangered Yellow-Eyed Penguin plus many other bird species.
