Discover the delights of Hanmer Springs, a picturesque alpine village at the foot of snowy mountains – only 90 minutes from Christchurch city.
Treat yourself to the luxurious pleasure of total body pampering in a stunning sub-alpine village setting. From soaking in natural thermal pools and relaxing in a steam room or sauna, to enjoying a deep body massage or full body wrap, Hanmer Springs offers pure indulgence and rejuvenation.
Along with thermal pools and a full range of body treatments, Hanmer is home to a raft of outdoor activities, including jet boating, quad biking, rafting, forest walks, horse treks, a leisurely bike ride, river and lake fishing – even bungy jumping! Or maybe enjoy the day skiing (July-October) or golfing at the picturesque 18-hole course. Any of these activities can be included in your day of relaxation and leisure.
If food and wine is your passion, an option with this tour is a stop in the Waipara Valley wine district on your return to Christchurch. This chauffeur driven Pamper Package is ideally a full day (or longer) trip but can be personalised to you.
