Important information
What to bring
  • Comfortable clothes
Know before you go
• You will be in contact with domesticated animals (e.g. sheep) including feeding, patting and grooming. The availability and or accessibility of baby animals is not guaranteed
• Hotel pickup and drop off can be arranged directly with the local operator from centrally located hotels with sufficient notice
• New Zealand weather is unpredictable at any time of the year. Whilst you'll be warm inside the bus, dress or prepare for all seasons as much of Canterbury is surprisingly remote. Wear walking shoes or boots with good grip soles that can cope with a bit of mud in wet conditions
