Join us for a spectacular one day tour into the breathtaking Southern Alps of New Zealand. This tour has it all! Four types of transport, three unique adventures, two course café lunch, one entertaining Kiwi tour guide, this equals the ultimate Alpine experience!
Your day begins with a scenic tour over the Canterbury Plains to the Waimak Gorge where you will board the famous Hamilton jetboat for an exciting 45 minute jetboat ride on one of New Zealands most spectacular rivers.
On return from the jetboat we board an off-road vehicle for a scenic 4-wheel-drive adventure across Mt Torlesse Station. This station is a 10,000 acre working sheep and cattle farm situated in the spectacular foot hills of the Southern Alps. You will get to experience the thrill and excitement of off-roading while taking in the spectacular alpine scenery and learning about the farm.
After an exciting morning we will stop at a quaint country café for a delicious lunch. After lunch we continue our journey through the Canterbury high country to Arthurs Pass stopping along the way at Lake Pearson and passing one of the filming locations from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
At Arthurs Pass you will board the world famous TranzAlpine train, sit back and relax with a glass of beer or wine and enjoy the spectacular scenery on your journey back to Christchurch. You will be collected from the Christchurch railway station by your guide and returned to your accommodation.
Tour price includes pick up and drop off from your central Christchurch accommodation and a delicious café lunch.
