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.

Embark on a journey of discovery and adventure with our captivating day tour to Akaroa, a quaint French settlement nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the Banks Peninsula. As we traverse the high summit route, be prepared to be mesmerized by the awe-inspiring vistas that unfold before you. Marvel at the patchwork of farmlands, the tranquil waters of Akaroa Harbour, the sweeping expanse of the Canterbury Plains, and the majestic peaks of the distant Southern Alps, all while soaking in the serenity of the remote bays that indent the coastline.

Upon reaching Akaroa, you'll find yourself transported back in time as you wander through the charming streets of the 175-year-old French village. Discover its rich history at the museum, peruse the art and craft shops for unique treasures, and perhaps even indulge in a spot of wine tasting at one of the local vineyards.

But the adventure doesn't end there. Prepare to embark on an exhilarating Sea Kayaking Safari, where your expert guide will lead you on an exploration of Akaroa's pristine waters. Settle into your kayak and paddle along the coastline, immersing yourself in the tranquility of the marine reserve. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of hector dolphins, white flippered penguins, fur seals, and a myriad of sea birds, as your guide shares fascinating stories about the region's Maori history and geological wonders.

After working up an appetite, we'll treat you to a sumptuous late lunch at the award-winning Bully Hayes cafe, where you can savor the flavors of local cuisine while reliving the highlights of your adventure.

As we bid farewell to Akaroa and begin our journey back to Christchurch, there's still more to discover. Time permitting, we'll make stops at the Barry’s Bay Cheese Factory and/or the Little River Art Gallery, providing you with the opportunity to delve deeper into the region's culture and flavors.

Join us for a day filled with exploration, relaxation, and unforgettable experiences in the picturesque paradise of Akaroa.
