Christchurch Holidays

Holidays in Christchurch take you to the southernmost city on New Zealand’s South Island. The island has a much smaller population than the north, giving you spectacular natural landscapes which are just waiting to be discovered.

Throughout the year you’ll find wonderful activities, ideal for explorers. In the winter, the mountains offer deep snow and fantastic conditions for skiing, while the summer months bring beautiful windflowers and kayaking, sailing, camping and more. If you prefer to relax, take in the views of Pegasus Bay as you enjoy a glass of local wine, or simply wander through the luscious streets of the ‘Garden City’.
