Flights to Christchurch

As soon as your flight to Christchurch touches down at Christchurch International Airport, it becomes clear why it’s known as The Garden City.

From above, it’s easy to see just how many wide open green spaces dot the landscape, centred around Hagley Park in the middle of the city. And bisecting the scenery is the lovely Avon River, whose waters have historically provided the means to keep Christchurch blooming.

Christchurch is the largest city on New Zealand's South Island and the centre of its adventure sports industry. When you consider how much the Kiwis (as the country’s residents are called) love the outdoors, that’s really saying something.

Christchurch truly is a paradise for the sporty, and a huge range of activities are easily accessible just a short trip from downtown, from skiing and playing golf to bungee jumping, mountain biking, wind surfing, rafting and more. If you’re content to simply spectate, there are hot air balloon rides and whale watching tours too.

That being said, you don't go to Christchurch just to leave Christchurch. The city has a charm all its own, and you could have a wonderful vacation sticking to the city centre; staying in its luxury boutique hotels, sipping espresso in its wonderfully cute cafes, dining in its five-star restaurants, and enjoying the relaxing, friendly environment that the locals pride themselves on creating.

Hagley Park is a picturesque public space where art projects pop up out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly. Outdoor concerts are popular in the summer with AMI Stadium playing host to artists from around the world, and the older world exists, too, witnessed in beautiful cathedrals.

Christchurch has a well-deserved reputation as an adventure and party centre, and you don't have to look too hard to find either. But there's also a sense of refinement to the city, a cosmopolitan feel that makes it one of the best destinations in New Zealand.

What to do in Christchurch

Take a chopper flight

For the most impressive view of the city, nothing beats taking to the skies. A 20-minute ride in a whirly bird will be plenty to get your bearings and blow your mind. If you're feeling adventurous, check out the tour options that go into the mountains or over the water.
