What better way to spend a day off your cruise ship than taking a luxury helicopter tour to the wonderful wine region of Waipara in North Canterbury? On your journey north, you will take in the views of Banks Peninsula, an extinct volcano, Christchurch city, and the Canterbury coastline. Your pilot will inform and entertain you, pointing out the interesting facts and historical features of our region.
You will visit some iconic Waipara wineries for wine tastings and there will be time to grab a bite to eat (cost of lunch not included in price). A vast variety of wines will be presented to you - North Canterbury is known for its award-winning Pinot Noir and Riesling. Proof of age (18 years) required to consume or buy alcohol.
On completion of your day, we will return you to Akaroa wharf to board your ship.
