If you are coming into Lyttelton port by cruise ship and enjoy spending time in nature surrounded by some of Canterbury's finest landscapes, this is the excursion for you. Your guide will meet you at port, and transport you 10 minutes to Sumner for a hot drink at a seaside cafe, before heading to Taylors Mistake Beach. Set off along the coastal track, visiting the caldera of the ancient volcano. The 8km walk includes a WWII coastal defense battery, Scotts Hutt, and amazing views of the rugged Pacific coastline stretching across Pegasus Bay to the often snow-covered Southern Alps. Picnic lunch is provided at a remote beach, total walking time is 3 hours.
