I am Nicole, the co-founder of Crater Rim Walks, a small family run business which has come about through my family's longstanding passion for walking in the hills surrounding Christchurch City. I am a Christchurch local, traveler and fitness enthusiast, and can’t wait to show off Banks Peninsula, an amazing outdoor playground for everyone visiting Christchurch. I have worked previously in marketing, TV production, as a personal trainer, and have made the switch to working in the fabulous outdoors, showcasing the very best Christchurch has to offer. Come and discover the Crater Rim with me!

Start the day with a hot drink at a local cafe before heading to Taylors Mistake Beach where the walk commences. Visit another quaint beach only accessible by foot for lunch, and walk back in time as you see small abodes hardly altered since they were build 100 years ago. Banks Peninsula is rich with history and the views are incredible. Admire the crater rim of an ancient volcano with stunning harbour views before return to Christchurch.
