Set against a dramatic backdrop where rugged mountains meet the sea, the picturesque town of Kaikoura is famous for whale watching, among other wildlife encounters. Whale watching trips leave the town several times a day and the local seal colony is always entertaining. There are also plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops to explore. Don’t miss feasting on a plate of the delicious local crayfish. An easy two-hour drive north of Christchurch, Kaikoura makes for a great day trip or a fun stop on your way north to Marlborough for a little wine tasting.

Kiakoura is one of those New Zealand towns that really has stacks going for it. Situated by the sea it takes advantage of this both before and after dinner. Dolphin and seal encounters are great fun and the seafood on the menu is to die for.

Kaikoura (where the mountains meet the sea) is a small town full of history and natural wonders. It is an ideal place to get "close to nature". Don't forget to try local crayfish.

Holding the visual trifecta of blue ocean, green land, and white-capped mountains, Kaikoura is nothing short of epic. It's one of few places in the world where you can surf in the morning, snowboard in the afternoon, and surf again in the evening. A 'board' sandwich, if you will. As in all of NZ, the people are as welcoming and unassuming as you can imagine and most are perpetually in awe of the wonder that surrounds in every direction.
