Little River Tour


Spend a lovely two hours enjoying the picturesque scenery of the volcanic Banks Peninsula and the towns and villages along the way on this elegantly crafted tour designed by Princess Cruises and inspired by local expert Hollie Hollander. Your destination is the town of Little River, and the drive from Akaroa, the only French-founded community in New Zealand, traverses the countryside, which is dotted with the petite villages of Takamatua Bay, Robinsons Bay, Duvauchelle and Barrys Bay. Continue through Cooptown to Little River, once the end of a railway branch from Christchurch. Today, this artistic enclave is home to painters, writers and farmers, who sell their wares in the local shops and galleries. Upon arrival, enjoy free time to explore the Little River Craft Station and information center and the Little River Gallery and Café displaying artwork from some of New Zealand’s preeminent artists. Your return drive includes a panoramic photo stop before returning to port.
