I offer an adventure tour which is based around a stunning coastal hike. (walk) The hike is not accessible by car and not easily found. I view this as the most scenic walk in Christchurch. I will meet you in my SUV at the Fendalton BP petrol station at 730am. I will drive you to a newly reopened castle where you can enjoy a full cooked breakfast. A castle tour is included which involves the history of the castle. I will then take you to a unique view of Christchurch beside the castle. There is a 20min scenic coastal drive to the start of the track. The coastal walk is 2 hours maximum and it is incredibly scenic. (30 mins to 1 hour by request) The evidence of history will surprise you. I can take your photos. We will walk at your pace. We will then drive through and around a historic port town before driving through a large tunnel. I will drop you at your air b and b or at a place of your choice in the City by about 1230pm

Breakfast in a newly re opened castle (tour included) Stunning scenic hike suitable for all levels of fitness. (customised to suit the group) Stunning scenic drive in an SUV This tour and walk duration will be customised by guest request and interest. Weather will be considered too. The tour will still take place if the weather is bad. If wet we will go to the Castle then go on a spontaneous tour to places that interest you until 1230pm.
No need to be super fit. However you need to wear walking shoes and be steady on your feet. The walk around the Bays is generally flat but it finishes with a 15 minute gradual hill climb. There is the option to reduce the walk to a shorter walk with no hill climb. (very unfit people)
