Kaikōura is located in the centre of New Zealand’s Highway One, almost halfway between Picton (the gateway to the South Island by sea) in the north and Christchurch (the gateway to the South Island by air) in the south. You can reach Kaikōura by car, bus, train, or daily flights by small fixed-wing aircraft from Wellington (at the bottom of the North Island).

Kaikōura is blessed with some of the most stunning natural features found anywhere in the world. A brief interlude of fertile flatland separates a limestone-faced peninsula extending into the Pacific from a rugged mountain range that juts sharply to peaks crowned with winter snow.

In addition, the Kaikōura Canyon, which lies beneath the depths of the ocean waters around Kaikōura, is home to a diverse range of marine wildlife, including dolphins, whales (viewed by sea or air), seals, and seabirds such as the mighty albatross. These nutritionally rich waters drop to 1000 meters or more depths a mere kilometre or two from shore.

The small and intimate village of Kaikōura, with a population of 4,000, attracts a growing number of visitors yearly. Quality accommodation and food outlets are available to satisfy the most discerning guests. Other attractions include fishing, diving, hiking, four-wheel bike tours, horse treks, wineries, art trails, and more.
