Eastern Bays Scenic Mail Run

Eastern Bays Scenic Mail Run Review

To see nearly a dozen hideaway bays, sign up to ride with the mailman while he delivers the rural mail on the remote Eastern Bays Scenic Mail Run. This highly scenic trip covers the more remote areas and starts from Akaroa at 9 am, finishing its circuit around 1:30 pm. The van stops for a tasty, homemade morning tea by the beach. Reservations are essential, and it's not suitable for young children. Make reservations through the Akaroa i-Site Visitor Centre (tours leave from here, too).
