Description

This tour provides an alternative to large coach transfers between Queenstown and Christchurch ( or in reverse ) and is a more intimate journey than flying. The trip takes you Lake Dunstan and into the Kawarau Gorge, site of the world's first bungy and home to award winning wineries. From here the trip passes through the world renowned gliding area of Omarama and into the dramatic landscape of the Lindis Pass. Further north the route takes you through the iconic MacKenzie Country, named after an infamous sheep rustler and past the glacially formed lakes Tekapo and Pukaki.
Tekapo boasts a famous lakeside chapel while beyond the headwaters of Pukaki is New Zealand's highest mountain, Aoraki Mt Cook. Photographic opportunities abound though weather permitting. 
Finally we cross the Canterbury farming plains and in to Christchurch city for a short familiarisation and drop off to your hotel.

The tour guides at Canterbury Trails have been hand picked.
They're chosen for their local knowledge, personality, love of a good story or two and their driving skills.
All the guides offer superbly entertaining commentaries and go out of their way to accommodate individual wishes and requests. The luxury all wheel drive mini vans are purpose built and carry all modern safety equipment. Canterbury Trails service includes picks and deliveries, door to door and the mini vans are stocked with morning and afternoon tea refreshments.
Cafe lunches are also provided and the day is fully escorted.
Depart Christchurch at 8am and finishes in Queenstown at approx. 5.30pm ( or in reverse )
