    Your first activity is a 30-minute boat ride on the tranquil Avon River by punt, a traditional flat-bottomed boat. Share the small, comfortable boat with a couple of companions, and listen to the commentary of your punter, who guides you along the scenic waterway.

    Adjacent to the Avon River, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens sit on 52 acres (21 hectares) of beautifully landscaped space. Explore the gardens on a caterpillar tour (an open-air shuttle) that takes you past exotic and native plant species. Stop for a closer look at areas such as the glass conservatories that house tropical vegetation, 250 varieties of roses, or an herb garden that features plants known for medicinal and culinary uses.

    After lunch, take in the scenery as you travel through the coastal suburbs of Sumner and Redcliffs. See sights like Cave Rock, an unusual volcanic rock formation on Sumner Beach with great views of the coast. Then head to the Christchurch Gondola, an enclosed cabin that glides up the Port Hills to Summit Station. Disembark at the top, 1,500 feet (500 meters) above sea level, to admire panoramic views over Christchurch, Lyttelton Harbour (Whakaraupo) and the Southern Alps. An audiovisual exhibit called The Time Tunnel describes the region’s natural and human history. You'll also have some time here for lunch.

    Your tour ends in town at the Christchurch Tram. You have the rest of the day to ride the elegant heritage tram, which operates as a hop-on hop-off tour. Disembark at any of the 17 stops to explore the city center on your own or explore Re:START shopping district, a popular spot that exemplifies Christchurch’s recovery after the devastation of the 2011 earthquake. The innovative outdoor mall features shops and eateries in sturdy, colorful designer shipping containers.
