NZ Wide Scenic Rail Tours

NZ Wide Scenic Rail Tours

Whether you are travelling north to south or vice versa, we have a collection of marvellous rail tours taking you on new adventures on both the North and South Islands.
Combining rail and road travel allows you to visit almost every part of New Zealand. Jump on board one of the world’s great train journeys – the TranzAlpine train. Cross the patchwork farmlands of the Canterbury Plains and traverse the mighty Southern Alps through the Otira Tunnel. Enjoy impressive Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers before arriving in Queenstown. Choose to travel up the middle of the South Island via Mt Cook or out east via Dunedin back to Christchurch.

The Coastal Pacific train north from Christchurch to Picton is just as dramatic. Sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean as you hug the Kaikoura bush clad mountain range just a stones’ throw from the ocean itself. Once at Picton, the journey continues via the Interislander ferry crossing the Cook Strait to Wellington.

Board the Norther Explorer and be captivated by the beautiful scenery as you travel through Tongariro National Park with the volcanic peaks of Mt Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu standing tall side by side.
