Cantabrians are well-known for embracing all things 'sport' so be sure to set aside time pre and post match to soak in the atmosphere and discover the plethora of hospitality options in and around the city. Take a city tour or explore the city by bike or foot. Unearth Christchurch's creative spaces, discover a vast range of street art or take to the Port Hills for a scenic walk or for the more energetic hit the mountain bike tracks.

Why not extend your stay?

Discover Canterbury's highlights all within a few hours drive of Christchurch. Explore the eco-tourism town of Kaikoura famous for all things seafood, Whale Watching and dolphin swimming. If relaxation is more your style then head to the thermal waters of Hanmer Springs, soak away the worries or if you want to burn-off some energy then hit one of the many bike tracks in the area. Akaroa and Banks Peninsula is another must-do, secluded beaches, stunning walks and a wealth of wildlife activities all within 90 minutes of Christchurch.
