Spend a day rock climbing on the Port Hills at one of Christchurch’s most spectacular climbing areas. If you’re completely new to climbing and just want to give it a go or, a seasoned climber looking for some local tips this is the trip for you.
Rock Climbing Tour Highlights Visit Port Hills Local guide Spectacular scenery Climbing 2000+ routes Abseiling

The 30 min drive up to the climbing area will take you through some of Christchurch’s most affluent suburbs, affording uninterrupted views from the Pacific Ocean to the Southern Alps in the west. Our climbing areas are scattered across the summit of an enormous extinct volcano that formed Banks Penninsula and Lyttelton Harbour. With over 2000 established climbing routes, Christchurch is one of the largest and most popular climbing areas in New Zealand.
Once you have been fitted with a harness and helmet it’s only a short 5 min walk to the Crag (climbing area). Your guide will set up the ropes and give you a safety briefing and belay lesson before you start your first climb. Once you’re feeling confident with the climbing systems your guide will review the abilities of the group and continue to set up some climbs that will be challenging, achievable and safe for the group.
We will have lunch up at the crag overlooking either Christchurch City or Lyttelton Harbour.

After lunch, we have a go at abseiling (controlled lower) where you will have the opportunity to lower yourself off one of the Crags. If you’re keen for some more climbing, abseiling or just relaxing your guide will be happy to find the perfect spot to finish the day.
At the end of the day, you will be dropped back to your accommodation or at the drop point at Canterbury Museum on Rolleston Ave, in the city center.
