Christchurch - Canterbury

Start with an easy drive from Christchurch through the patchwork fields of the Canterbury Plains. In less than an hour you’ll cross the Rakaia River at the gorge bridge.
Detour 10 minutes into Methven, a ski town in winter and a café haven during summer. Enjoy some of the many local activities like mountain biking, scenic flights, golf or hunting and fishing. From here, drive on to beautiful Lake Tekapo

With its stunning turquoise water, Lake Tekapo offers a magnificent spectacle and is a year-round destination. There are so many ways to enjoy this part of the country – hiking, fishing or relaxing in hot pools while gazing at the lake.

While you're here, don't miss heading to the top of Mt John for 360 degree panoramic views.  The sheer grandeur of the place truly comes alive at night with clear skies and remarkably dark nights, making Lake Tekapo a stargazer's dream.
