All about the 10 Day Christchurch to Christchurch Comfort Tour
Our 10 Day Christchurch to Christchurch Comfort Tour is one of the best loops around! Hit the road in style and get to know Te Wai Pounamu – the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. Soak up scenery that you have to see to believe, from the wide plains of Canterbury to the mountains of Central Otago, to the glaciers and rainforest of the West Coast.
You’ll have the opportunity to swim, kayak, surf, jet boat, bungy jump, quad bike, skydive, canyon swing, hike, heli hike, bike, luge, horse ride, see kiwis, relax in hot pools, play golf, hot air balloon, eat and drink like a local, and more.
But only if you want to; this is your trip, and it’s designed to be flexible. We include some of the things that we reckon are absolute essentials, but rather than force you into activities you’re not so sure of, we leave the choice up to you. You can pre-book activities that you definitely want to do before the trip starts, and then add more while you’re on tour. Please note, though, that some activities can book out due to popularity – so if there’s anything you’re definitely keen on, make sure you do pre-book so you don’t miss out.
Our New Zealand comfort tours have some extra special itinerary inclusions, as well as comfortable twin-share accommodation. It’s all about being a little bit fancy, from those extra stops and spots to the place you lay your head at the end of the day.
These tours are ideal for duos travelling together, from pairs of friends to couples. But if you’re travelling alone, no worries – we’ll organise a room with a fellow solo traveller, meaning you’ve each got an instant friend on tour. If you’d prefer to have your own space, you do have the option to upgrade to a private room.
In this itinerary, there is a day-by-day breakdown, with sections for morning, afternoon and evening plans. Each day will feature inclusions, highlights and a variety of the add-on activities on offer (see the “Epic Add-Ons” sections).
Explore and adventure around the South Island!
