    Join us as we explore New Zealand by rail. We begin our tour in Auckland where
    we climb aboard the Northern Explorer. Experience the extremes of New Zealand’s
    scenery, from the fertile farmlands of Waikato to the volcanic peaks of the Central Plateau
    and the sparkling Kapiti coast. After two nights in the Capital City, we join the Interislander
    ferry service across the Cook Strait to Picton. It is considered one of the most beautiful ferry
    journeys in the world! After two nights in Nelson and two nights in Blenheim, it is time for our next rail journey – the Coastal Pacific train which takes us along rugged coastlines, across remote beaches,
    between mountains and sea, on a timeless journey of breathtaking beauty.
    We overnight in Christchurch before heading to Hanmer and then Hokitika for overnight
    stays prior to joining our final rail journey, the TranzAlpine. During our journey we’ll see
    epic vistas, travel the edges of the ice-fed Waimakariri River, traverse the Southern Alps,
    and see miles of native beech forest. We conclude the tour with another night in Christchurch.
