Kaikoura

— 5 nights
Head to the small town of Kaikoura, a humble setting from which to witness some of nature's grandest designs.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Change things up with these side-trips from Kaikoura: Hanmer Springs (Hanmer Forest & Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Ohau Point Seal Colony, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, contemplate the long history of Fyffe House, and relax in the rural setting at The Point Sheep Shearing Show.
