Canterbury prides itself as one of the most accessible regions in New Zealand. Home to the second largest city in the country, Christchurch, the region has everything you need for an authentic Kiwi experience.
Christchurch is the gateway to the Canterbury region and the spectacular experiences you will have within the South Island of New Zealand. Explore the range of activities and attractions we have on offer.
Bikes are a popular way to explore the Canterbury region. Christchurch's flat grid-like structure positioned next to the vast network of scenic road and off-road trails up and around the Port Hills, and the rest of the Canterbury region is a drawcard for many cycling enthusiasts. Cycling is also a great activity for the whole family to enjoy. So pack some lunch and hit the trails for a great family day out.
