Flights to Christchurch from £907

Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand's South Island, and is considered a top travel destination: for example, Lonely Planet named it one of the Top 10 Cities to Visit in 2013. It has some of the world's most spectacular surrounding landscapes, a very vibrant and exciting cultural environment and activities available for a wide range of interests. Perhaps the most characteristic aspect of New Zealand is its outdoor culture including: forest hikes, deep sea fishing, skydiving, kayaking and paragliding are only some of the experiences you can try during your time there. The surrounding areas are filled with unspoiled natural wildflife: Riccarton Bush (an ancient forest) and the International Antarctic Centre are sights you can access easily from the city. The airport connects the city with most New Zealand and Australian cities, including: Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Wellington. In addition to this, there are intercontinental flights to cities such as Bangkok and Dubai.

Flight destination: Christchurch

Christchurch International Airport has good connections with the city centre, with bus, taxi and train options available. Travel time varies between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the transport mode chosen. The city does not offer a specific tourist-oriented city card. Nevertheless, the city's tourist board (its website is ChristchurchNZ) offers plenty of information on how to get around the city, activities to do, accommodation, local cuisine and leisure and entertainment facilities. New Zealand is fast becoming a wine producing country: you can leave the city for a day to visit vineyards, on one of the many wine trails offered to tourists. Other great activites from the city include whale watching in Kaikoura and hiking through Arthur's Pass National Park; don't miss out on the local food in South Canterbury, with a view of the Southern Alps. In addition to this, the city is undergoing radical changes (following the earthquakes of 2011), with a vision to become a "city in a garden", by creating many parks and green areas in the urban landscapes. If you want to see more of New Zealand, take a plane to Queenstown or Wellington, or visit the rest of the South Island.
