The Christchurch conference tour is an exciting visit to some of New Zealand's most exciting and picturesque sites!
Travel from Christchurch across the wide expanses of the Canterbury Plains deep into New Zealand's mighty Southern Alps, to the alpine village of Arthur's Pass, which is about 2 hours’ drive from Christchurch. This is a day of excellent photo opportunities. On the way a stop is made to view the unique limestone rock formations at Castle Hill and a walk can be made to the top of the rocks for magnificent views. Climbing to more than 900 metres through Arthur's Pass National Park, Arthur’s Pass is the highest and most spectacular pass across the Southern Alps. Take a short walk to the Devil’s Punchbowl Falls, wander through lush beech forest to one of New Zealand’s most stunning waterfall’s. Watch out for the cheeky and mischievous Kea, the world’s only alpine parrot. The return journey includes a visit to The International Antarctic Centre. This features a recreation of the atmosphere of Antarctica with a snow and ice experience, the blue penguin encounter and an exhilarating Hagglund ride.
