Combine your Avon River Punting with other great activities into the one package and SAVE! Explore the best of the surrounds outside Christchurch with your choice of a Punting and Gondola or Punting and Gardens package, each of which offers a delightful experience of the wonderful nature in this popular region of New Zealand. Live out a Cambridge-style experience within these impressive NZ surrounds as your river pilot glides you gently down the Avon River and take in the various gardens, hanging trees and local landmarks from the comfortable vantage point of the water.

Bundle this with your choice of a tour of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens - which serves as a showcase for some of NZ's blend of exotic and indigenous plants in a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city - or a Gondola combo that will let you take in various local landmarks such as Hagley Park or Christchurch itself. Regardless of your choice, if you're after one of the most peaceful, charming and serene ways to see the best of Christchurch at a great price, grab a "Punting Combo" online here!
