This is a journey through the centre of the South Island, Christchurch, the famous Akaroa Peninsula into the heart of whale watching country in Kaikoura.

 

In the heart of New Zealand's South Island lies one of the country's best-kept secrets, Lake Tekapo. Located in the Mackenzie Basin at the base of the Southern Alps, Lake Tekapo boasts the breath-taking scenery of the lake and surrounding mountains that impresses even the most well-travelled tourist.

 

Christchurch is no. 2 on The New York Times's 52 Places to Go in 2014 and the gateway to New Zealand's South Island. Vibrant and ever-evolving it is surrounded by a region of natural wonders like the Akaroa Peninsula. A journey around this beautiful peninsula will reward you with picturesque vistas at every turn, and a marine environment teaming with wildlife.

 

You will be amazed by what these areas have to offer travelers.
