Recovering strongly from a major earthquake last year, Kaikoura has, is and will always be a popular travel destination. With its stunning mountain ranges backdrop, this coastal town is famous for a number of land, sea and air activities.
Begin your PGNZ Golf Weekend getaway to Kaikoura with a premium helicopter transfer from Christchurch. This scenic trip will take you over beauty North Canterbury farmland and rolling hills.
Arrive at Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses, Kaikoura's finest luxury lodge and accommodation, in time for a scrumptious seafood dinner and a bottle of outstanding New Zealand wine. This wonderfully unique property is the perfect place for a two night stay in Kaikoura. Find out more here.
After a pleasant night's sleep and hearty breakfast, it is time for golf in Kaikoura.
Kaikoura Golf Club is located just 17 minutes from Hapuku Lodge. This 18 hole championship golf course not only offers spectacular views of the mountain ranges, but it provides a beautiful golfing sanctuary for you and your golfing partner. The fairways appear wide but approach shots to the green require accuracy so the course offers an experience for all types of golfers.
After obligatory drinks at the 19th Hole, it is time to return to Hapuku Lodge and get yourself ready for a picnic lunch.
Spend the afternoon exploring the Kaikoura township and a lovely stroll along the seashore.
The next day, it is time to view the whales! Whale Watch Kaikoura is New Zealand's ultimate marine experience allowing you to see Sperm Whales in their natural environment. These award winning tours can either be done on sea or via the air.
Finish off the weekend with another wonderful picnic lunch while looking at the beautiful vistas and scenery. Afterwards it is time to board your helicopter and return to Christchurch.
While savoring your unique experience in Kaikoura, start planning your return.
