Kaikoura luxury vacations hand-crafted by our New Zealand specialists.
A small coastal town with enormous appeal, Kaikoura can be summed up in three points: marine life, coastal walks and crayfish.
An easy two-hour drive from Christchurch, this little town delights with views of the rugged Kaikoura Range and Pacific Ocean – plus all the inhabitants that come with it.
Arguably the best place in New Zealand to see a sperm whale, cruises depart multiple times daily and often include sightings of dolphins, albatross and fur seals as well. Among Kaikoura’s small shops and restaurants, it’s worth splurging on a crayfish dinner.
The South Pacific’s equivalent of a North American lobster, the meat is juicy, flavorful and best enjoyed at a picnic table beside the beach.
Wander the Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway to work up an appetite, then settle in and enjoy.
The Pier Hotel has a restaurant inside, and their catch comes highly recommended.
