Experience the Coastal Pacific and TranzAlpine rail journeys as part of your tour. Both take in New Zealand’s rugged beauty in absolute comfort as the amazing scenery passes you by.

The Coastal Pacific is a truly remarkable rail journey that commences at the coastal port of Picton. Travel through the picturesque Marlborough Wine Region then continue along the East Coast via a thin wedge of land pinned between the Pacific Ocean on one side and the rugged beauty of the coastal mountains on the other. You may see amazing wildlife from your carriage including dolphins, seals and penguins before arriving at the seaside village of Kaikoura.

Enjoy an expedition on the world famous TranzAlpine, one of the great train journeys of the world. Depart Christchurch and travel through the patchwork farmlands of the Canterbury Plains, follow the Waimakariri River, climbing into alpine scenery on a series of spectacular viaducts, river valleys and spectacular gorges as you ascend to Arthur’s Pass located in the centre of the Southern Alps.

Another key highlight of your holiday is an Overnight Cruise on Milford Sound, see spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife. Enjoy a delicious carvery buffet, spend the night on board the Milford Mariner and wake up in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
