Full Day Alpine Safari Tour - with transport: Your Alpine adventure begins with a scenic tour over the Canterbury Plains to the Waimak Gorge, where you will board the famous Hamilton jetboat for an exciting 45 minute spin ride on one of New Zealand’s most spectacular rivers. On return, board an off-road vehicle for a scenic four-wheel-drive adventure across Mount Torlesse Station, a 10,000-acre working sheep and cattle farm located in the spectacular foothills of the Southern Alps. You will experience the thrill and excitement of off-roading while taking in the spectacular mountain scenery and learning about the farm.
After an exciting morning, pause at a quaint country café for a delicious lunch before continuing through the Canterbury high country to Arthur’s Pass, stopping along the way at Lake Pearson and passing one of the filming locations from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. At Arthur’s Pass, board the world-famous TranzAlpine train, sit back and relax with a glass of beer or wine, and enjoy the spectacular scenery on the journey back to Christchurch. You will be collected from the Christchurch railway station by your guide and returned to your accommodation.
