Christchurch Gondola and Punt on the Avon River

1. Christchurch Gondola and Punt on the Avon River

See Christchurch from a different perspective with a combined Punt along the Avon River aboard a classic flat-bottomed boat, and a ticket for the Christchurch Gondola cable car.  Travel with a guide dressed in Edwardian costume, who will provide a live commentary as they punt you along the river. Blankets, umbrellas, and hot water bottles are provided on cold days, so don't let the weather put you off. Take a ride on the Christchurch Gondola cable car, and see the beautiful Alpine scenery surrounding Christchurch city center and its suburbs. Explore the history of the region in the unique Discovery ride, and pause for reflection at the Red Rock Café. Marvel at the Southern Alps to the west, and the Kaikoura Mountains to the north. To the south lies the beautiful harbor of Christchurch, and to the east is the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy 360-degree views of the plains, mountains, city, and harbor from the glass-enclosed cabin. Purchase souvenirs in the "Shop at the Top" once you reach the summit, or go to the Red Rock Café for some refreshments. If you are feeling more energetic, take one of the many walking trails, such as the hike to Crater Rim, formed by the volcanic activity that created Port Hills. Travel back in time at the unique Discovery Ride, and learn about the development of the region.

What people are saying about Christchurch

The views from the Gondola were spectacular and an amazing way to see Christchurch for my very first time, very relaxing ride and nice little walk once I was at the top. The Punt on the Avon River was very relaxing and the instructor shared a lot of history and had a good sense of humor. All round was an excellent experience and would love to do it all again.

View from the top of gondola is amazing! Punting on the Avon river was so lovely, they even gave blankets and hot water bottle to keep us warm. Extra touch really appreciatedx

It was really great. Peaceful and serene on the river Avon and great views from the gondola. But GYG gave us the wrong meeting place address/directions.

The punt was really relaxing, the gondola was calm and not that bumpy, the view is a must when visiting Hamilton
