Our tour departs Akaroa and travels via the Akaroa Highway with breathtaking scenery of Akaroa Harbour, Little River, Lakes Forsyth and Ellesmere, the Southern Alps and the Canterbury Plains. Upon arrival to Christchurch and following a stop at the botanical gardens, join us on a brief sightseeing tour showing city landmarks an the badly earthquake damaged city center. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place. The tour then moves on to The International Antarctic Center. The attraction features a recreation of the atmosphere of Antarctica with a snow and ice experience (Antarctic Strom) , blue penguin encounter (the Penguins held here are birds that have been rescued and cared for, some since they were chicks. Due to physical disabilities that have left them defenceless, many of them would not have survived on their own back in the wild), an exhilarating Hagglund ride and 4 D Movie before returning to the movie.
