Traveling from Christchurch to nearby beach, mountain, backcountry, and well-known sightseeing destinations such as Mount Cook and Queenstown is encouraged for visiting students. Flanked by beautiful beaches on one side, hills on another and just 90 minutes away from the nearest ski area, Christchurch is within easy reach of the great outdoors for climbing, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, hang gliding, whitewater rafting, sailing, surfing and more. The surrounding Southern Alps provide much of those opportunities; and parks, local golf courses, and sandy beaches provide endless year-round outdoor activities.
