Kaikoura is blessed with some of the most amazing, scenery that New Zealand has to offer and is still considered as one of the best kept secrets of New Zealand. During winter the mountains are simply breathtaking and worth waiting around for a day or two to see for yourself. There are many walks, mountain bike tracks, and sights to see including the seal pup nursary at Ohau. Kaikoura activities are like walking along a rocky shore, you never know what you will find until you start lifting the rocks. Ask the locals, the motelliers, the restaurant staff or even the staff at the Petrol Station, they know the places to see. Kaikoura is belssed to have the Whales and the Dolphins but they are just the stage show! spend some time in Kaikoura, relax and do some exploring, you will love it!
