Being the gateway to South Island’s beautiful green reserves, Christchurch has ideal qualities for great glamping trips. A drive through the Alpine Triangle gives nature-lovers a scenic view of what to expect from their stay: Rolling hills, a charismatic coastline, and breathtaking mountain ranges. One of these ranges, Mount Cook, is home to 19 of New Zealand’s tallest mountains and is one of the best skiing slopes. Travelers have the option of touring the waters along the mountains via boat, getting up and personal with the massive glaciers that chill there during winter. Forget about staking a tent; you’ll be staying at one of these cottages that combine the conveniences of home with the adventurousness of nature. Don’t miss your chance at adventure. Just pick one!
