What you will visit:

Hanmer Springs
Just 90 minutes from Christchurch, but seemingly worlds away, the beautiful resort town of Hanmer Springs is renowned for its thermal pools and spa and abundant outdoor adventure activities. In addition to naturally heated, mineral-filled waters for therapeutic soaks, you'll find a children's play area and several more adrenaline-fueled aquatic rides, including hydro-slides and a thrill ride called the (Super Bowl) This picturesque alpine village also boasts expansive landscapes of lush forests and rugged mountain ranges plus a charming main street lined with boutiques and cafés.

What you will see along the way:

On your return from Hanmer Springs, enjoy a short drive through Christchurch. Situated around the River Avon, its beautiful Gothic architecture and blooming gardens were hit hard by the devastating 2011 earthquake, which leveled much of the city's infrastructure. But rising like a phoenix, Christchurch today is revitalized and growing and has turned much of the damaged areas into modern and beautiful outdoor public art galleries.

Special Notes:

Entrance fees to the hot pools and lunch are not included in this tour.
