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. Akaroa is in Canterbury Region.
