You will be picked up from your accommodation by your guide in a private SUV, and entertained with the history of Christchurch on the 30-minute drive to Sumner/Lyttelton where your walk will commence. Hot drinks are picked up on the way to enjoy in the car before setting off along the coastal track. Visit the Crater Rim surrounding the caldera of the ancient volcano. Visit the newly restored WWII coastal defense battery, Scotts Hutt, and take in amazing views of the rugged Pacific coastline stretching across Pegasus Bay to the often snow-covered Southern Alps, Lyttelton harbour and wide expanses of the Pacific Ocean. Total walking time is approximately 2.5 hours, before returning to Christchurch City.
WHAT TO WEAR/BRING:
Comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots (sneakers are fine but they must have good traction on them as the path can be slippery, especially after rain)
Comfortable clothes depending on the season (shorts/leggings and a t-shirt)
A warm layer of clothing and a jacket
Sunblock and a sun hat
