Alpine Pacific Triangle
Fly from our base at Christchurch International Airport to the Northern Canterbury region. This is a dry area, making farming challenging in this region, instead sheep and beef farms can be found in the high country and irrigated dairy farms on the flats. Next fly over Hamner, renowned for its thermal hot springs, before heading east to Kaikoura to see first-hand the devastating effects of the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake. The final leg of your trip brings you back to base down the picturesque east coast.
