North Island Scenic Rail Tours

North Island Scenic Rail Tours

Enjoy the charm of rail journeys and be enthralled by the views not seen when travelling by road.
From the bustling city of Auckland, board the Northern Explorer, New Zealand longest running passenger service and begin your journey south. There are ample photo opportunities as you travel through Tongariro National Park with the volcanic peaks of Mt Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu standing tall side by side. Enjoy the viaducts of Ruapehu district and the gorges of Rangitikei as you travel. Further south, watch the scenery change as you journey alongside the Kapiti coast with its shimmering waters as you make your way to New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington.

Of course the same spectacular scenery can also be seen if you begin your journey in Wellington and travel north to Auckland.
