So close to Christchurch, yet couldn't be further away as an experience. Beautiful 'french village', plenty of things to do on the water and trekkiing through the hills, or just great for coffee and food. On the way there, don't forget Little river; great gallery.

So much to do. Akaroa..quaint French town. Hilltop Tavern. Great food but indifferent service, overall worth a visit. Lots of littlebays all the way around. Take the Summit Rd from Hilltop for fantastic views.

Stunning view of Akaroa and surrounds at top of hill before heading down to township. Lovely spot and plenty of nice eating places

We use the Akaroa - Christchurch Rd every couple of months in the summer and love the trip knowing we will be in our piece of paradise as soon as we reach Akaroa. There are so many interesting things to see along the way and a stop in Little River at either of the Cafes is always looked forward to by our grandchildren. Plenty to see and do if you take your time.

I have been to banks Peninsula quite a few times, ranging from day trips to training courses. The best experience I have had was sleeping in the car and waking up to the view over one of the bays in the morning.
