Escape in the crater
With just over an hour’s drive from Christchurch, Akaroa Glamping is the perfect getaway. We have two glamping sites overlooking Akaroa's Harbour and give views of Onawe Peninsula, the sea and the surrounding hills.
Situated among nature, where you’ll be greeted by our friendly birdlife, we've created a simple and laid-back experience for our guests to unwind. Our Kakapo tents include, a king bed, arm chairs, wooden floors and everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. You can enjoy the simple pleasures of camping, with the perks of hot running water and first class amenities.
Akaroa Glamping has two tents on the glampsite. On the outside these tents look like a tent you’d find at every other kiwi camp site, but on the inside these are kitted out with wooden floors, a king bed, luxurious bedding and lounge chairs. The tents have also been raised off the ground and a have a deck area to relax and bask in the beautiful views of the harbour.
What we offer
Only a few steps from the tents, you’ll find the bathrooms and outdoor kitchen. Each tent has its own private bathroom with hot running water for the shower and a flushing toilet. The outdoor kitchen is equipped with all you need to cook up a classic Kiwi breakfast and Summer night BBQ. The bird feeder perched by the kitchen attracts Tui’s and Bellbirds to watch while you can enjoy a ‘cuppa’ of Noble & Savage Tea Merchants tea or Kokako Coffee; chosen for its bird friendly and organic production techniques.
What to bring
We provide the eggs, milk, coffee & tea. But you'll need to bring the rest. Or, Rona's is always a good option. Our glampsites don't have electricity, but we do provide a powerbank to charge mobiles. Be sure to bring warm clothes for the evenings and suitable footwear to explore the beautiful walks it has to offer. Insect repellent & sunscreen - a very wise option.
