TranzAlpine Train to commence 7-days

The Christchurch to Greymouth TranzAlpine train will run seven days a week from Friday 22 September.

Explore the Southern Alps aboard the TranzAlpine train - one of the world's great train journeys, covering 223 kilometres (139 miles) one-way and taking just under 5 hours.

Our TranzAlpine train travels coast-to-coast through the 'Great Divide' and the indomitable spine of mountains that partitions New Zealand's South Island.

On the east, enjoy relaxing in the garden city of Christchurch and horse trekking into the mountains from Springfield. On the west, experience the tranquillity of Lake Brunner and venture into glacier country from Greymouth. At the centre, explore some great NZ mountain hikes at Arthur's Pass.

Book a journey like no other by travelling in either direction from Christchurch to Greymouth, or Greymouth to Christchurch.
