Escape with Akaroa Shuttle to Little France. Just 75 kilometres from Christchurch, Akaroa is a historic French and British settlement nestled in the scenic heart of an ancient volcano.
Elevated views of the city, bays, estuaries and inlets are fantastic visual appetisers for the natural splendour of the Akaroa landscape.
In the charming Akaroa there is plenty of opportunity to meander along the sunny seaside promenade, visit the Giant's House or enjoy a delicious meal overlooking the water.
Take time to watch penguins, swim with a pod of dolphins or enjoy the view from the ocean by kayaking, sailing, jet boating or cruising on the harbour. Cycling around Akaroa or hiking in the surrounding hills are other popular activities.
