Christchurch

CHRISTCHURCH

Canterbury's patchwork plains are framed by the ocean and the Alps, bringing a wide variety of attractions for visitors.

Within two hours of an international airport, you can ski, play golf, bungy jump, go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world-class vineyards and gardens. Where else in the world can you do that? Journeying through Canterbury is nothing short of breathtaking, with an abundance of natural highlights.
