Christchurch is the starting point for two spectacular rail journeys – one through snow-capped mountains, and the other beside the Pacific Ocean.
Wind through stunning viaducts and deep into the Southern Alps with the TranzAlpine train journey. Leaving from Christchurch and Greymouth daily, the TranzAlpine is known as one of the world’s great scenic train trips and straddles the width of the South Island. If you’re after ruggedly beautiful coastline, wildlife spotting and vineyards, try a journey on the Coastal Pacific, which runs daily between Christchurch and Picton.
