Let the sun hit your face and the water wash over your feet. A wonderful place to start is Taylor's Mistake Beach, 50 miles to the east, or Sumner Beach, 45 miles to the east.

Adventurous types will delight in the stunning natural areas of Canterbury. Rakaia Gorge is 8 miles away from Windwhistle, while Awa Awa Rata Reserve lies 15 miles away.

From hitting the slopes to building snowmen, ski resorts have something for your whole group. Windwhistle is in the vicinity of two popular ones, Mount Hutt Skifield and Roundhill Ski Area, merely 14 miles and 60 miles from the city.

A trip to Waimak Alpine Jet and Mt Cheeseman Ski Area in Springfield, some 15 miles from Windwhistle, is worth thinking about.

There are many ways to get up and make the most of some wide open spaces in and around the region. Mountain biking and rock climbing are two active pursuits to choose from.

The Canterbury area provides visitors with plenty of pleasant pursuits in the great outdoors, such as cycling and shore fishing.

You'll learn far more spending time with the locals than you ever could from the glossy pages of your guidebook. Consider booking some guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours.

While you are traveling through Canterbury, go on an adventure that you'll remember for years to come. Sky diving up among the clouds is sure to leave a long-lasting impression.

If the weather is good when you're here, get out and enjoy the water. Swimming and rafting are two ways the locals make a splash!

No one likes to see the end of a vacation. However, you're sure to leave this remarkable part of the world with a camera full of photos and a heart full of unforgettable memories.
