About Hanmer Connection

The Hanmer Connection provides daily transportation between Central Christchurch and the magnificent Hanmer Springs Alpine Village.

Hanmer Springs is surrounded by forest and mountains and offers an extensive range of activities for visitors both young and old. Hanmer also features a wide range of walking and mountain bike trails, short and long walks, horse riding, golf and for the more extreme adventurer bungy jumping, rafting, jet-boating and quad biking. In the winter months Hanmer also has its own ski field. Complete your experience by relaxing in the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools.

Our shuttle departs Christchurch every morning at 9am, and starts the return trip from Hanmer at 4.30pm. Bookings are essential, with one-way and return fares available. We also offer concession cards and are happy to provide quotes for charters, wine tours and private car hire.

Additional stops are made at Woodend, Amberley, Waipara, Waikari, Hurunui, Culverden and Thrillseekers.
