QUAKESCAPEWALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Groups 15-50 POA
Kaikōura has long been known as one of the most picturesque locations in New Zealand and the Kaikōura Peninsula – made of limestone – is a photographer’s dream with its stunning rock formations exposed through periods of rapid uplift.
In November 2016, when a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit the region, the landscape changed dramatically forming some of the newest land in the world. You’ll visit several sites and be given the chance to stand on this land as you listen to tales of how it was, what has happened and how it is today for the community.
Your guide will share the geology of the area and overlay this with cultural knowledge handed down from one generation to the next, bringing to life stories of the past with the science of today.
During this combination of easy walking and driving you will be served light refreshments and meet family members as well as join in time-honored activities and traditions.
NB: Depending on weather and road conditions on the day, actual sites visited may vary.
