One of the world’s most spectacular train journeys crosses from coast to coast in New Zealand’s South Island. The Tranz Alpine Scenic Rail Journey delivers spectacular scenery you simply can’t see from the road. Along this journey you’ll see epic vistas and the striking beauty of the mighty Southern Alps, travel the edges of the ice-fed Waimakariri River and see miles of unique native beech forests. An outdoor viewing carriage is also provided giving you the opportunity to soak in the fresh alpine air.

Meandering along the Pacific Coast the Coastal Pacific Train travels breathtakingly close to the sea, where the roaring Pacific Ocean meets the rising Kaikoura mountains. The stunning Kaikōura Coastline is famous for its marine life and whale watching. Voyage through vineyards and idyllic countryside. The Coastal Pacific train takes you along rugged coastlines, across remote beaches, between mountains and sea, on a timeless journey of breathtaking beauty.

Experience the extremes of New Zealand’s scenery, from fertile farmlands to the volcanic peaks and sparkling coast.
