Trip Summary

This is the trip I would recommend to my overseas friends if they wanted to do a trip around New Zealand. The trip starts and finished in Christchurch, one of my favourite places to walk around and explore. As a born and bred proud Kiwi, I love nothing more than showing off my home and I'm excited to show you my favourite spots. If you like adventure, nature, lots of activities and nothing but memorable experiences, this trip is perfect for you!

About Kyle

Behind the brand Bare Kiwi is Kyle Mulinder, a ‘Kiwi’ with a passion for adventure travel and storytelling. Kyle grew up on a small sheep farm in the lower North Island but dreamed of life beyond Norsewood. After completing an adventure tourism course in Nelson Kyle secured his first full-time job; a white water raft guide on the Buller River. He now has almost 20 years experience working in the tourism industry. Working in the tourism industry is what sparked the idea of Bare Kiwi in 2009. To reduce the amount of disposable tourism literature that was being distributed, while helping travellers discover the real New Zealand, Kyle decided he would create short videos that featured him experiencing tourism activities. Unintentionally, Kyle became a digital influencer – not only in demand in New Zealand but also internationally. Bare Kiwi is now recognised as a global influencer on the adventure travel scene​.

I love Christchurch. The city is full of an incredible energy. They have a booming arts scene and one of my favourite things to do is just walk around and explore.

Stony Bay Peak in Akaroa

Stony Bay Peak in Akaroa
Watching this sunrise over Akaroa. Such a perfect way to end an epic weekend there. Stoney Bay Peak is a 7.6 kilometer out and back trail located near Akaroa, Canterbury, New Zealand that offers scenic views.
C1 Espresso Cafe
drink
C1 Espresso Cafe
This is my office away from home. I absolutely love this café. The breakfast is epic and you’ll get one of the best coffees in Christchurch here.
Fish n' Chips Akaroa
eat
Fish n' Chips Akaroa
What's more Kiwi than grabbing some Fish n' Chips and enjoying by the harbour? There's a few great options in Akaroa, but my tip is Murphy's on the Corner. It's better value for money. Just grab them take away and
enjoy by the pier.
Eco Villa
sleep
Eco Villa
A new sustainable concept in travel accommodation in the heart of Christchurch. This is my favourite place to stay while I'm in Christchurch. They have a nice little garden area out the back, and their breakfast
a homemade sustainable spread that is the best way to start the day.
