TranzAlpine Train

Travelling from Christchurch on the World famous TranzAlpine Train to Greymouth, the central heart of the region, you will visit one of New Zealand’s most scenic regions, the West Coast of the South Island.

The TranzAlpine train is one of the World’s top six scenic train journeys. You will travel through fertile farmlands of the Canterbury plains and carve through deep gorges following the ice fed Waimakariri River. Climb through the mighty Southern Alps, where spectacular views of the chiselled alpine landscapes will take your breath away at every turn. Finally, emerge through unique native beech forests and glacier fed lakes to the expansive beauty of the Tasman Sea.
