Canterbury

CANTERBURY

Canterbury, a unique combination of supremely beautiful and different districts, and the city of Christchurch, sits on the East coast of New Zealand’s South Island. It offers premium panoramic landscapes formed by the Southern Alps. Between the mountains and the sea, the vast Canterbury plains are patchworked with the patterns of rural life. Christchurch, the biggest city of the South Island buzzes with exciting festivals, theatre, modern art galleries, great shopping and award-winning attractions. Explore the contrasting offers of both urban and rural lifestyle – live and work in the city, ski on one of the multitudinal ski fields during the winter season, soak away the stress in thermal pools at Hanmer Springs, go eco-watching in Akaroa or Kaikoura, and get in touch with nature by tramping and camping by forested parks. Canterbury has warm summers and cool to cold winters; it is also known to have hot norwesterly winds blowing during warmer months.
