The TranzAlpine scenic train journeys between Christchurch and Greymouth. From the comfort of our carriages, see the fields of the Canterbury Plains and farmland, followed by the spectacular gorges and river valleys of the Waimakariri River. Your train then travels into the majestic Southern Alps to Arthurs Pass National Park, before descending through lush beech rainforest to the West Coast town of Greymouth – a great base for visits to Punakaiki and the always-popular glaciers. Scenic Plus offers an experience to feast your eyes on epic scenery while savouring regionally inspired cuisine paired with sumptuous wine and beer all from the comfort of your seat – a dining experience like no other.
