What you can expect
Breathe in the fresh air of the New Zealand countryside. Drive through picturesque landscape on your way to a working sheep farm. Enjoy a live sheep-shearing demonstration and even take the opportunity to have a go at it yourself.
Start your guided tour with a hotel pick-up and take a scenic drive to one of the sheep farms in the Canterbury region. Get a feel for farm life as sheepdogs muster and pen the flock so that you can pet the warm wool of these friendly animals. Watch as a farmhand adeptly trims the coat and even try your own luck with the shears. Break for morning or afternoon tea before you return to the road.
You have a choice now to include a wine tasting, making a detour through wine country to visit the Waipara wine region to sample a variety of Canterbury-region vintages. Alternatively, if you're feeling adventurous, take an electrifying jet boat ride on the Waimakariri River – sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
