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 out to Sumner/Lyttelton where your walk will commence.  Hot drinks are provided at a local café 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.  A gourmet 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, before returning to Christchurch City.

  • Sunblock and a sun hat
