Explore the Garden City in a Campervan
Christchurch or 'The Garden City' is famed for its perfectly manicured gardens found on almost every corner. The best time to see the city with it's neo-Gothic architecture and colourful flower glory is in February and March each year.
Due to a mild climate, Christchurch has the advantage of providing pristine beaches during the summer months to cool off and the local mountains for skiing and snow trips during winter.
There is an assortment of activities to keep you entertained within close reach to the city. Taking a motorhome hire holiday means that you can travel with all of your possessions and keep on trekking instead of day trips and returning to the to city for accommodation each night.
Natural attractions such as hot alpine pools, lakes & rivers, magnificent beaches and rolling greens hills go hand in hand with some of the favourite attractions such as jet boating, horse riding, whitewater rafting and balloon rides.
Travelling inland from Christchurch will bring you to the settlements of Darfield, Oxford and Ashburton. You should take some time to discover the history of these quaint towns, as they will also give you an idea of the prominence that Christchurch holds in the Canterbury region.
A visit to Craigieburn Forest Park and Arthur's Pass National Park will allow you to get back in touch with nature and explore the many facets of New Zealand's native flora and fauna.
Kaikoura is another delightful place to visit, and is nestled halfway between Christchuch and Picton. If there is one thing Kaikoura is known for, it's the marine life that calls it home. Dolphins, whales and seals frequent the waters around here and the opportunities to interact with them are seemingly endless. Whale and dolphin watching is an extremely popular past time here, and there are several touring companies that operate out of Kaikoura.
