Head out of Christchurch on a day to remember: a van tour to see Mount Cook, called Aoraki in Maori, which is the tallest mountain in New Zealand. Take in the scenic drive, marvelling at the pale blue Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki. Stop at Lake Tekapo to visit the Church of Good Shepherd on the shores of the lake, before arriving at the famous Hermitage Hotel for a delicious lunch at your own expense. Make the most of your three hours of free time at Mount Cook National Park. Once there, immerse yourself in nature on a scenic walk to see the impressive Tasman Glacier, called Haupapa in Maori. See how nature abounds in this stunning part of the world, before heading back to Christchurch in the comfort of the van.
