Travelling from coast-to-coast, across the spectacular and varied landscape of the South Island, the TranzAlpine offers scenic vistas beyond compare. Crossing the lush Canterbury Plains, icy Waimakariri River, over rugged gorges, and through dense native beech forest and the majestic Southern Alps, the landscape is ever-changing, offering breathtaking views that can be enjoyed from new, custom-built carriages. With wide panoramic side and roof windows, untinted and non-reflective glass designed to aid photography, and open-air viewing decks, the train offers a unique experience and strikingly beautiful means of travelling between Christchurch and Greymouth. The train also boasts a licensed cafe with a range of food and drinks, and GPS triggered at-seat commentary for a fully informative experience.
