Private Tour Details

This is a Private Tour. Your party will have exclusive use of a luxury SUV, along with a dedicated Canterbury Trails Guide for the day.

Explore the picturesque journey to Akaroa, a historic French settlement nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of the Banks Peninsula. You will be picked up from your hotel in Christchurch and taken on a scenic drive, traversing the high summit route with glorious views of farmlands, Akaroa Harbour, the Canterbury Plains, and the distant Southern Alps, all while marveling at the remote coastal bays that indent the coastline.

Upon reaching Akaroa, take a leisurely stroll through the charming 175-year-old French village. Explore its museum of settlers' history, art and craft shops, and studios before indulging in a delightful lunch at an award-winning café. Afterward, continue your adventure to Shamarra Alpacas, a private alpaca farm renowned for its cute, affectionate, and clever creatures.


During your tour you'll start with an introduction to alpacas and their quirky habits, along with a safety briefing. Experience the softness of award-winning alpaca fleece and interact with the gentle animals as they graze in their natural habitat. Feed the mothers and their young for an up-close encounter and capture stunning views of Akaroa harbour for lasting memories. Conclude with a beverage and home-baked cookie before browsing the boutique collection of alpaca knitwear in the Shamarra Alpaca Shop.


Please note that the order of events may change due to the timing of the alpaca farm visit. Time permitting, additional stops may be made at Little River Art Gallery and Barry’s Bay Cheese Factory, providing further opportunities to immerse yourself in the region's culture and flavors. After the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
