Overview

Details

Discover Banks Peninsula and the city of Christchurch, the tour departs Akaroa and travels via the Akaroa Highway with breathtaking scenery of Akaroa Harbour, Little River, Lakes Forsyth and Ellesmere, the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains.

On arriving in Christchurch and following a stop at the botanical gardens join us on a brief sightseeing tour showing city landmarks an the badly earthquake damaged city centre. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place. The tour then moves on to The International Antarctic Centre. This features a recreation of the atmosphere of Antarctica with a snow and ice experience, the blue penguin encounter and an exhilarating Hagglund ride. .

The Penguins held here are birds that have been rescued and cared for, some since they were chicks. Due to physical disabilities that have left them defenceless, many of them would not have survived on their own back in the wild.
