The French heritage and colonial architecture of Akaroa has broad appeal to anthropologists, historians, architects--and just about anyone with an eye for beautiful, historical buildings and a palate for fine dining. The colonial legacy of the French settlers endures in the charming cottages and chic restaurants that line the Francophone streets. No tour of Akaroa would be complete without a trip onto the bay, where you can catch sights and snap photos of penguins, fur seals, and dolphins. Take a look at our New Zealand trip builder website to refine the details of your trip to Akaroa.
