Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the second-largest in New Zealand.

Christchurch is known as the garden city, though after the recent earthquakes it is said the city will be re-build as a "city in a garden"

The river Avon flows through the city and the many sporting fields create an open city environment.

With our New Zealand adventure tours you will explore some of the most beautiful places on the planet (lost beaches, dense rainforest, isolated peaks, turquoise lakes). Explore at your leisure on foot or through varying cycle trails, by kayak, cave, white-water raft, or are you mad enough to "bungy".
