Christchurch Sightseeing

The best views of Christchurch are here!

Christchurch Adventure Park Sightseeing Chairlift Ride

At 1.8 kilometre long the Christchurch Adventure Park chairlift is the longest in New Zealand.

This makes it a great opportunity for taking in some of the best sightseeing Christchurch has to offer. 

The chairlift is used to access the start of the Zipline Tour and can be ridden for the views alone with a Chairlift Pass. 

As far as sightseeing goes in Christchurch, we offer a large range of activities, family attractions and sightseeing in such close proximity. An outdoor activity that the whole family can partake in.

Travel up and down on our chairlift for a stunning scenic ride taking in the adventures around you as you go. You will dismount at the top and there is a short walk to take some snaps with views across the city and out to the Pacific Ocean and the Southern Alps in the background- a selfie-spot must. 

The Chairlift is also the first in the country that has been purposefully designed for riders and their bikes. The simple load and unload system takes any hassle out of carrying your bike and the views just make it a treat to ride.
