Get to know Christchurch with Viator

The largest city on New Zealand’s South Island, Christchurch blends its Maori and English past with contemporary multiculturalism. The city is dotted with stone colonial-era English buildings and pretty gardens, and the Avon River winds through the city center. Christchurch's seaside suburbs beckon with surfing, swimming, and sunsets, while heritage sightseeing trams and Spanish Mission-style architecture add color and character to the central city.
