Akaroa Helicopter Tour
The locals will tell you that no trip to the Christchurch area can be complete without a visit to Akaroa, the jewel in Banks Peninsula’s crown. The flight from Christchurch follows the spectacular rugged coastline until you head inland to Akaroa harbour and experience a sight that will take your breath away. Lush forests and grassland run down the hillsides to the azure water of the endless bays, fed by the Pacific Ocean itself.
It takes just 15 minutes to fly to Akaroa as opposed to one and a half hours by road, so you won’t waste a second getting to this quaint seaside village. Early French settlers gave Akaroa its heritage and distinct French feel that is reflected in the names of the streets and local bays. It boasts a number of excellent shops, cafés and restaurants to wander amongst at your leisure.
There are many wonderful attractions in Akaroa to explore making this the ultimate day trip, one that you don’t want to miss!
Hanmer Springs Revitaliser Package
Relax in our sauna or steam suites, before drifting off as the soothing hands of your therapist gently eases tension in your back, neck and shoulders. Finish with an express facial that will have you renewed and re-energised. Includes thermal pool entry.
The Greystone PurePod is set high above the award-winning Greystone vineyard, less than an hour north of Christchurch, right in the heart of the Waipara Valley wine producing region.
With the Teviotdale Hills behind and views up the Waipara Valley across to the Southern Alps, the Greystone PurePod provides a beautiful setting for you to immerse yourself in your own private slice of the New Zealand landscape.
Breakfast & Dinner Package
The hamper is made from the best available fresh local seasonal ingredients and includes a tasting platter for a starter. The main dish can range from beef, lamb, venison and fish (ready for you to cook yourself on either the cooktop or the barbeque), with seasonal vegetables or salad. To finish your evening meal, there is a sweet treat or seasonal fruit. Breakfast is delicious homemade muesli with locally made organic yoghurt and a fruit compote.
