Coastal Pacific Train departs on Thu to Sun only 

On arrival into Christchurch make your way to your hotel for the first night of your mini getaway.  Distinction Hotel Christchurch stands proud amongst the buzz of the rejuvenation of Cathedral Square. This Christchurch accommodation is ideally positioned in the heart of the city only a few minutes' walk from the Avon River, Botanical Gardens, Christchurch Casino, Cashel Mall, and new Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre.  

This morning is an early start getting to railway station for your departure on the Coastal Pacific.  Take in the opportunity to soak in the beautiful countryside heading north in the wine region of Wairarapa, along the coastline of Kaikoura and into Blenheim, the true heart of wine growing in New Zealand, famous for Sauvignon Blanc. 

Today you partake in the Half Day Sauvignon Blanc Blended Wine Tour. This wine tour mixes and matches Marlborough wines and gives you a glimpse of why Marlborough Wines are so popular. This tour isn’t just Sauvignon Blanc wines – you will get to try a number of varietals ranging from dry wines to sweet wines and from whites to reds. If you're not a Sauvignon Blanc fan they will find another variety that is right for you.

This morning check out of your accommodation and head home.  If you want to extend your trip, consider taking the Interislander ferry across to Wellington or hire a car to explore more of the Top of the South.
