Akaroa Walking Tour - KQ35

Discover a touch of France in the Southern Hemisphere as you walk through the historic township of Akaroa. Founded in 1840 by French settlers, Akaroa still bears a distinctive French colonial flavor. Your guide will lead you on a tour that weaves a fascinating tale of Akaroa's past and present, from French explorers to rugged whalers to British royalty. See the town's historic buildings and fascinating trail of artifacts. In the event of wet weather, the walk is shortened. In inclement weather, an indoor slide show "virtual walk" is substituted.
