Christchurch and Canterbury can claim to offer more activities, attractions and scenic variation in close proximity than anywhere else in the world.
One of the very special features of Christchurch is that you can be enjoying the surf and sand at the beaches from Brighton to Sumner in the morning, and playing in the snow in the afternoon. You can even travel from the East Coast to the West Coast in less than a day, seeing an impressive variety of spectacular scenery en route!
