Stretching from the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean, with stunning snow-capped mountains as its backdrop and bordered by impressive braided rivers and crystal clear lakes, Mid-Canterbury is one of the great secrets of New Zealand, with an inspiring range of both energetic and relaxing activities, complemented by genuine New Zealand heartland hospitality.
