About North Canterbury, New Zealand

Descending from the “Dry Hills” of southern Marlborough a quite fantastic sight greets you – the stunning Pacific coastline of North Cnterbury! Flanked by the majestic Kaikoura Ranges on the landward side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, this is a trip of pure magic.

Buy your dinner absolutely fresh from a roadside crayfish stall. Go whale watching or swim with the dolphins at Kaikoura; ski at Mt. Lyford then head inland to the fabled hot pools of Hanmer Springs.

See the strange limestone formations and explore the wild rivers of the Hurunui or sample the wines of Waipara.

Here is our selection of Kaikoura B&B's
