Akaroa, New Zealand overview

Akaoura Harbor is located on the shore of French Bay. The harbor itself was formed when the sea breached the erosion-enlarged crater of an ancient volcano. Unique in its French heritage, this charming little resort and fishing village offers much to do. Take a harbor cruise and see the myriad types of marine life through crystal-clear water. Sample the many fine shops, cafes, and restaurants.

You MUST take the Excursion to the Akaroa highland farm (sheep farm). The shuttle drive is very scenic. The farm is owned by Murray and his family. They are very friendly. You'll hear great history, observe a sheep shearing, and observe their gentle dogs herding the sheep.

Akaroa why go to Christchurch, when you have this little French inspired town , my highlight . The view from any of the coffee shops breathtaking , the meat pies from the local butcher to die for , the Giants house a must

What a beautiful place. We booked a small tour up over the peninsula stopped for a coffee and photo shoot. Visited a local cheese factory. Returned to the town and wandered around browsing the shops. Stopped for lunch in Sweet As and had fish chowder, absolutely delicious. Will definitely return to this place

Loved this little place. We took an excursion from Akaroa to Christchurch through very steep hills. Had a great day in Christchurch itself & the containers made into shops were quite fascinating
