Discover Canterbury

Welcome to Canterbury

Hit the road and head to Canterbury for the winter getaway of a lifetime. Canterbury features exquisite scenery and plenty of natural attractions for the outdoorsy, as well as city centers for the socialite.

From grassy plains to breathtaking coastal views, mountains and glaciers, Canterbury truly has something for everyone. And with an extended winter holiday, you can explore everyone’s top destinations without ever leaving the region.

During the winter, Canterbury experiences magnificent crisp blue skies and plenty of mountain snowfall for the snowbirds to take full advantages of the fresh powder in the mountains. Clear nights open up the universe and let you take advantage of the best stargazing opportunities on the planet.

Whether you’re into sporting events, like skiing and snow fishing, or prefer to wine and dine, you’ll find Canterbury a region packed with options for the adventurer in all of us. If you plan to head out frequently during the day, make sure to bring along some extra layers and water-repellant outer layers to protect yourself from the sometimes-unpredictable winter weather in the region.

So pack your bags and bring the family or plan a romantic winter holiday to Canterbury. You may never want to head back home!

What a better way to travel through Canterbury than with a motorhome. Hire a campervan with Mighway, and let the journey unfold!

Getting to Canterbury

The camper was brilliant and had everything you could imagine on it. Including DVDs and a picnic table. I will be recommending Mighway to anyone who has a camper sitting around that they aren't using.

Mt Hutt Ski Area

For the winter sports enthusiasts, Mt Hutt provides endless challenges and learning opportunities for advanced and beginner skiers alike. Try your hand at snowboarding or advanced trails if you want something a little tougher than what you tried on your last winter holiday.


Christchurch is one of the largest metropolitan centers in New Zealand and is the beacon of Canterbury. Whether you plan to spend a lot of time in the city or want to grab a cultural event during one night of your holiday, make sure you don’t miss all that Christchurch has to offer during the winter season.


With the incredible nighttime views that winter in Canterbury offers, you’ll be able to see right into the heart of the night sky. Pick out your favorite constellations or grab an astronomy book to help you chart ones you’ve never heard of before. Taking children for their first stargazing experience is something that they’ll never forget.
