Mid Canterbury

Welcome to Mid Canterbury, a wonderful diverse region full of things to do and see all about an hours drive from Christchurch Airport.

We can arrange a rental car for you on arrival in Christchurch. If you have a private tour your host / guide will meet you at the airport. 

Mid Canterbury is the perfect place for a quick escape from the "Big Smoke", stretching from the Rakaia River in the north to the Rangitata in the south, or a stop over for a few days on your way north or south. 

Methven is the perfect place to base yourselves on your Mid Canterbury stay, it is central to everything you need. Methven offers a wide variety of accommodation to suit all budgets, it also has a great choice of bars, restaurants and cafes. Mid Canterbury is predominantly a farming region so the standard of ingredients is exceptional. 

Bring your golf clubs with you, there are a number of excellent local courses as well as the internationally renowned Terrace Downs Resort. Opuke is Methven's brand new hot pool and day spa facility, this is the best way to relax with stunning views of the foothills. Hot air ballooning, the awesome Rangitata rafts and Rakaia Gorge Jet boat are the perfect activities for those who need a bit of an adrenaline rush. There is also archery, skiing on Mount Hutt (during winter months) and local garden tours.
