Christchurch 4WD Hire

Christchurch 4WD hire offers a unique and engaging way to explore the wonders of New Zealand's South Island and, if the ferry takes your fancy, beyond into the rest of this fascinating country. Hiring a 4x4 allows visitors to travel at their own pace and to see parts of the countryside that would be out of bounds to conventional vehicles.

 

We've made getting a quote on your Christchurch 4WD Hire a breeze (see the bottom of this page), but we also know the best way to holiday is to know where you're headed. Here's our rundown of places so you know how to get the most out of your offroad experience.

Top 4X4 Destinations in Christchurch

One of the top destinations for 4WD expeditions on the South Island is the skiing region surrounding the small town of Methven. Winter in New Zealand offers some excellent natural beauty and all the excitement of winter sports without the larger summer crowds; temperatures aren't especially low but many of the higher roads become impassable to any vehicles but 4x4s. For those who are seeking a unique ski experience this is the ideal location as there are helicopter links from Methven to the top of the best slopes in the region.

The Central Otago region and in particular towns like Queenstown, provide an excellent destination for those wishing to explore the vast expanses of the high country. Up here, Christchurch 4WD hire allows you to range between a great number of sheep and cattle stations and soak up what is part of the truly quintessential New Zealand. The scenery is very impressive and panoramas of lakes and mountains make driving through this area totally unforgettable.

Another highly popular destination is the Arthur's Pass National Park, located less than two hours' drive from Christchurch. It was the first national park on the South Island and State Highway 73 helpfully passes right through it, allowing easy vehicular access to the whole region. One of the main attractions in the park is the titular pass, which features a bridge crossing a valley in the Southern Alps, at a height of 920 metres above sea level. There are also great expanses of forest to explore and prime locations for mountaineering and skiing.

The Waitaki River Valley is a great place for those utilising Christchurch 4WD hire. It provides a fantastic route along Highway 83 and is a location of immense natural beauty with plenty of lakes and mountains to draw the eye of any visitor. Throughout the valley there are many small towns and villages which can provide accommodation and a taste of local life.
