4 Day Christchurch Discovery & Alpine Safari

4 Day Christchurch Discovery & Alpine Safari

Explore the highlights of Christchurch and see why it's one of the top destinations to visit.

The Garden City of Christchurch is surrounded by natural wonders … the sparkling Pacific Ocean, the majestic Southern Alps and an ancient volcanic peninsula. There is much to see and experience in this region of remarkable contrasts.

This interactive and fun city tour highlights the very best of Christchurch including the city’s beautiful parks and gardens, quaint seaside suburbs and superb views towards the Southern Alps. Your tour also explains about the plans for the rejuvenation of the city following the major earthquakes of 2010 & 2011, and also includes Christchurch’s premium attractions – Punting on the Avon, the Tram, the Gondola and the Caterpillar Botanic Gardens Tour.

We deliver you to city centre for lunch at your leisure. The tour ends here. You will have as much time as you wish to explore the new look city centre of Christchurch. Constructed of ‘designer’ shipping containers this development is breathing new life into the devastated centre of town and is a clever example of Christchurch’s vision for recovery.

Enjoy a fabulous day tour into the magnificent Southern Alps. Leaving the city behind, you’ll travel over the Canterbury Plains to the Wamakariri Gorge where you’ll board your jetboat for an exciting 45 minute ride on one of New Zealand’s most spectacular rivers. Then join your off-road vehicle for a 4WD adventure across Mt Torlesse Station, a 10,000 acre working farm situated in the foothills of the alps. After lunch at a quiet country cafe, travel to Arthurs Pass where you join the world famous TranzAlpine train for the spectacular rail journey back to Christchurch through the Southern Alps.

You’ll stay 3 nights at The Classic Villa, an historic Italian style house offering 5 star, boutique bed & breakfast accommodation. Centrally located on a quiet pedestrian boulevard, all rooms are beautifully appointed with quality fittings and furnishings, free WiFi and high speed internet access plus many other extras.
