Get out into the fresh country air and connect with rural New Zealand. Native forests, rivers and mountains surround the pretty town of Geraldine, located between Christchurch and Lake Tekapo.
Take a farm tour, handle deer velvet, sample deer milk cheese, visit historic farm buildings, hear the stories of New Zealand’s early farm settlers, visit their graves and their oldest church.
Experience 4WD tours to Mesopotamia Station at the head of the mighty Rangitata river.
Maybe you’d prefer to visit local art galleries, sample local cheeses, relax over lunch at the famous Barker’s Foodstore & Eatery or enjoy a spa treatment and sample a gin at Humdinger Distillery.
And at the end of an exhilarating day return to the luxury at The Vicarage of Geraldine. Pour a glass of wine and relax in the Vicar’s Sitting Room before heading out to dinner.
