Christchurch: Punting on the Avon

An iconic Christchurch activity not to be missed. Admire the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens or the changing face of the city centre as you are expertly guided gently along the Avon River on our authentic Edwardian Punting tours.

Refined, relaxing & romantic – Punting on the beautiful Avon River is an iconic Christchurch attraction not to be missed. The waters of the Avon ripple by as you sit back on deep cushioned seats in a classic Punt while your Edwardian-dressed Punter guides you quietly on a 30-minute ride past trailing willows, woodlands, leafy banks and the sights of the garden city of Christchurch.

An ideal group or family activity, Punting on the Avon is an eco-friendly way to relax and enjoy Christchurch from a different perspective.
