If you are short on time, the half-day guided walk is a great option.  Both morning and afternoon walks are available, see the highlights and be back in Christchurch in time for lunch or dinner.
  • Personal guided walking tour for small groups of up to 10
  • Transport from the CBD to the walk in a 12 seater van (30mins)
  • Return hotel transfers within 5km of CBD
  • Light morning OR afternoon tea
  • Water bottle to keep
  • Walking sticks and a day bag
You will be picked up by your guide, who will entertain you with the history of Christchurch on the 30-minute drive to Sumner/Lyttelton where your walk will commence.  Visit the Crater Rim surrounding the caldera of the ancient volcano. 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 with a short break for morning/afternoon tea, before returning to Christchurch City.
*Cruise guests, please book Lyttelton Shore Excursions to ensure pick up from Lyttelton Information Centre, where we can adapt timings to suit your ship's arrival and departure times.
  • 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
  • Camera/phone
