Experience adventure four different ways! A coach takes you across the Canterbury Plains to the Waimakariri Gorge and River, where you'll take a thrilling jet boat ride along the whitewater rapids. Next, a rugged 4WD takes you up a steep incline to a section of the region's original stagecoach route. The day ends with a scenic trip back to Christchurch on the TranzAlpine train; you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights of what has been called "one of the top six train journeys in the world."
