The walk provides the opportunity to see and experience New Zealand at its very best. Begin your journey with pickup from your accommodation by your guide. On the drive to the site of the walk, listen to your guide's entertaining tales of the history of Christchurch and learn about the people who live there. Hot drinks will be provided at a local café as you prepare your hiking equipment with your guide, and receive a snack box with refreshments before the walk commences.
