Optional Private Excursions available for purchase

Avoid the crowds and hustle and bustle associated with a group activity. For a memorable trip ashore, we invite you to consider a private shore excursion. Enjoy the undivided attention of your own driver/guide and the flexibility of experiencing the aspects of the local culture that most interest you. Below are just some samples of the private shore excursions we can arrange for you. Give us a call or email us. Let us personalize your experience!

Akaroa - 8 hrs - High Country Station Excursion
Itinerary Overview:

You will be met at the wharf this morning by your guide and driven to Christchurch Airport to meet your helicopter. You will take off and fly over the patchwork pasture of the Canterbury Plains. You will slowly get closer to the remarkable Southern Alps which dominate the skyline of the South Island. Here you will land at a private sheep farm or high country station as they are known. Enjoy learning a little about life on one of these remote New Zealand rural properties and find out the important role agriculture plays as part of New Zealand’s economy. Enjoy lunch at the property as well as time exploring the farm with your magnificent hosts. This afternoon you will be taken for a spectacular scenic helicopter flight through the
mountains, including an alpine landing, before returning to the wharf.
