Whether you are
entering new to the tour or in the morning comes from Akaroa. for
participants who have stayed in Akaroa, the tour takes over the port
town of Lyttelton over a pass at its uppermost point of a well-known
motorbike meeting is. A beautiful lookout point over the city of
Christchurch and the Southern Alps.
See also 10 day tour.
After we left drive through Christchurch and / or behind us, it always
goes north towards Kaikoura.
The traffic of the big city is again considerably less and we focus our
attention on the beautiful and varied area. A few kilometers before the
Kaikoura peninsula we head to a cozy pass crossing back along the coast.
The road up and down between the mountains and the most violent waves of
the sea along the east coast goes.
Kaikoura lives mainly from whale watching. The whales come here very
close to the coast. Reason for this is that the seabed to a depth of 5
km falls steeply immediately. Finds of Octopus tentacles up to a bus
length refer here to a table laid for whales.
Changes in the tour may be possible due to different events!
TIP: On the way to Kaikoura there is
on the coast road to see several large seal colonies. Sometimes, you can
see hundreds of jumping and spinning dolphins on the coast.
