Christchurch Gondola

Christchurch Gondola TripWelcome Aboard the Christchurch Gondola, the first and only Gondola in Christchurch City, and one of the most popular Christchurch activities. Take a spectacular ride far above the city, as your 4 person cabin lifts you gently up to 500m (1500ft) above sea level over the 945m ride. Stunning 360° views extend over Pegasus Bay and the Pacific Ocean to Kaikoura; over Banks Peninsula, Lake Ellesmere and Lyttleton Harbour, and across the Canterbury Plains to the Southern Alps.

Once you reach the top, there’s so much more! Perched on the rim of the Mt Cavendish crater, the summit complex rises up 4 storeys and includes:
  • The Summit Café
  • The Pinnacle Restaurant and Events Centre
  • Shop at the Top
  • Time Tunnel Ride Experience
