Stunning from start to finish. This was the third walk I did this month after the Heaphy and Rakiura tracks. All Very different and offering different landscapes and challenges. This was absolutely delightful and charming. The accomodation was unique, quirky, clean and comfortable with everything you need and options for all types of traveller. The walk itself offered stunning views, beautiful bush, waterfalls, swimming holes, long comfortable stretches and a few challenges and uphill climbs, all the wildlife and farmlife to satisfy every interest. Can not recommend this walk highly enough. Perfect for a two or three day hiking option in a stunning part of the country free of crowds and busy walkways.

Visit the Summit Rd for a wonderful experience looking over Christchurch, the plains and the Southern Alps as well as Lyttelton Harbour. Have a great coffee at the Sign of the Kiwi.

So scenic, and largely ‘untouched’. For lunch/dinner, in Akaroa (wharf area) ‘La Thai’ is run by a genuine Thai family and the food is delicious.

A wonderful scenic area with stunning views from the summit ridge. The roads are narrow and twisty so it will take you longer than you might expect, especially if you stop at the small towns and museums and have the odd coffee. Allow a day and I dont think you will be disappointed.
