What you'll do

I offer an adventure tour which is based around a stunning coastal hike. (walk) The hike is not accessible by car and not easily found. I view this as the most scenic walk in Christchurch. I will meet you at your Airbnb at 930am. We will drive 20 minutes to the hidden track. We will go through a large road tunnel on the way. The coastal walk is 2 hours maximum and it is incredibly scenic. (30 mins to 1 hour by request if you are not very fit) The evidence of history will surprise you. We may see ocean swimmers, kayakers and people on paddle boards and native birds. There are lots of interesting native trees on the track. I can take your photos. We will walk at your pace. We will then have a fantastic lunch in a historic port town near the track. You will have time to look in the interesting shops beside the cafe and we will do a 10 minute driving tour around this historic port town after lunch. We should be back at your Airbnb by 130pm. (I can also drop you in the city if you prefer.)

I have worked as a registered nurse and I have been a ski guide. I am also passionate about preventative health, connection and communication with people.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Don’t worry if your English is not good. I can help you learn more English on our day.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Comfortable walking shoes for hiking. (Trainers/runners sufficient)

More tips

I will meet you at your airbnb. No need to be super fit but you must be steady on your feet. The walk around the Bays is generally flat but it finishes with a 15 minute gradual hill climb. There is the option to reduce the walk to a shorter walk with no hill climb.
