Running once a day, the TranzAlpine is arguably the most scenic railway journey in New Zealand. The route crosses the width of the South Island from Arthur's Pass on the west coast to Christchurch on the east. The journey takes us across the rich grazing farmland of the Canterbury Plain, through the Waimakiriri River Gorge, and over the spectacular mountains of the Southern Alps.
On-board, passengers can take advantage of a buffet car, an open viewing carriage, and single-class carriages with large windows.
