Suggested Itinerary

Arrive into Christchurch and check in to the Novotel Christchurch Cathedral Square. Explore the central city with an optional Christchurch Tram ride, one of Christchurch’s leading attractions. Stop at the Margaret Mahy Playground, before grabbing a bite to eat at the Riverside Market. Spend the afternoon at the Antarctic Centre, a ‘must do’ fun, interactive and authentic Antarctic experience. Hang out with Little Blue Penguins, buckle up for the exciting Hagglund ride, take an awesome simulated 4D Antarctic cruise, then watch a stunning movie on a MASSIVE screen!

Drive to Kaikoura. Go Whale Watching – you will be introduced to the magnificent Sperm Whale, also to migratory Humpback Whales (June & July), Orca (summer months), New Zealand's own tiny Hectors dolphin, the high spirited displays of the Dusky dolphins, New Zealand Fur seals and the Royal Albatross.

Spend today exploring Kaikoura, or get out on the Whale Watch boat if you couldn't do it yesterday. Dine on crayfish at Nins Bin or delicious seafood at the Kaikoura Seafood BBQ

Return to Christchurch for your flight out. If you have time spend some time in Akaroa - The Giant’s House is great for family photos with a difference! Be sure to stop at Little River for an ice cream.
