Port of Call - Akaroa

Regarded as a little piece of paradise, Akaroa is a charming, seaside village located just 75km from the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is home to beautiful colonial architecture, fantastic art galleries, craft stores and lovely little outdoor cafes.

The landscape of Akaroa is dominated by the sparkling blue waters of the harbour, which is home to a unique array of marine life, including the world´s smallest and rarest dolphin, the Hectors Dolphin.

Simply relaxing by the harbour´s shores is another popular past time, while those who prefer more land-based activities enjoy walks or horse rides throughout the surrounding rolling hills.
