Welcome to Akaroa -
The most French town in New Zealand, Akaroa will have you entranced with its historic buildings, magnificent harbour and passion for food and craft.
Personally, if you have arrived on a cruise ship, please don’t buy into the cruise lines selling you a trip to Christchurch – you’d be missing out on what is the honeymoon capital of NZ!
Instead, I recommend my clients to sleep in, take a later tender and avoid the rush before being able to meander the street of Akaroa and all its hidden gems.
I totally rate the La Thai and Mandala restaurant in Akaroa so don’t skip past them.
If you would like to get out and see the surrounds of the Banks Peninsula, then I recommend a 1-hour tour that we can provide with our guides on request.
