Christchurch Alpine Safari CHN-CHN GS55 (0830 - 1830)

This full-day sightseeing tour will appeal to adventure seekers! Experience the ultimate alpine adventure with a scenic coach trip, adrenaline-charged jet boat ride, off-road exploration and a spectacular train journey to top it all off.

Leaving Christchurch, travel by coach through the Canterbury Plains to the Waimakariri Gorge. Experience the thrill of a 45-minute jet boat ride along the crystal clear 'Waimak' River. Your experienced guide will navigate through shallow waters and rapids and get your heart racing with 360° spins. Next, take a rugged four wheel drive journey across Mt Torlesse Station, a working sheep and cattle farm at the foot of the Southern Alps. Get an insight into faming in New Zealand as you traverse back country terrain amid stunning scenery.

Enjoy a delicious lunch in a countryside café before continuing through the Canterbury high country, stopping at glacier-fed Lake Pearson and passing by locations made famous in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and The Lord of the Rings films. At Arthur's Pass, high in the Southern Alps, board the TranzAlpine train, then sit back and relax on one of the world's top six rail journeys for a stunningly scenic ride back to Christchurch.
