What you'll do

We offer guided 1-day walks on Banks Peninsula, a spectacular extinct volcano within 30 minutes of Christchurch. Experience the world class views and enjoy a days walk with a stunning coastal backdrop. You will be picked up from your accommodation by your personal guide in a luxury SUV. On the short drive to Sumner/Lyttelton where your walk will commence, you will be entertained with the history of Christchurch, including personal experiences from your guide. Hot drinks are provided at a local café, then you will commence your walk, during which there will be plenty of fantastic photo opportunities, and a chance to hear all about the area and its history. Visit the Crater Rim surrounding the caldera of the ancient volcano. Picnic lunch is provided at a picturesque location along the way. Total walking time is approximately 3-4 hours with a 30 minute stop for lunch. Total trip duration is generally 6 hours, 9am-3pm, and we do also have half day options if you are short on time.
