Take in the South Island’s stunning mountains and the vast Canterbury Plains aboard the TranzAlpine. New Zealand’s finest inland rail journey.

The Journey
Experience the South Island’s striking natural landscape by taking a train between Christchurch and Greymouth. Along this journey you’ll see epic vistas, travel the edges of the ice-fed Waimakariri River, traverse the Southern Alps, and see miles of native beech forest.

The TranzAlpine is one of the world’s great train journeys covering 223 kilometres (139 miles) one-way, taking just under 5 hours. You’ll traverse the majestic Canterbury Plains, to the backdrop of the mighty Southern Alps – the journey of a lifetime.


After the devastating Kaikōura earthquakes, changed landscapes have formed creating a new New Zealand for us to explore. Be one of the first to take the Coastal Pacific train along the east coast of the South Island to discover the different scenery when it re-opens December 1.

The Coastal Pacific train runs daily throughout the summer season from Christchurch to Picton. With the sea stretching to the horizon in the east and the Kaikoura mountains stretching to the sky in the west, the Coastal Pacific is one of the most astonishingly beautiful journeys in New Zealand.
