Witness a wintry wonderland from the warmth of our carriages!
New Zealand is renowned for its natural beauty during the winter months. From the frosty fields and paddocks of the rural lowlands to the blanketed plains and snow-capped mountains of the Volcanic Plateau and Southern Alps, sparkling views abound during winter.
And what better way to experience those magnificent wintry scenes than by gazing through a huge panoramic window from the comfort of warm, spacious scenic carriages—perhaps accompanied by a hot pie and a glass of mulled wine? Mmmm, yes, we love winter.
And if you need any further inspiration, then perhaps a wondrous winter 15% discount can transform your thinking into doing?
The natural order of travel in New Zealand is from north to south, east to west. We aren't sure why, but we thought we'd promote thinking backwards.
So, why not start at the end, and finish at the beginning! And with our discounts, you can save 15% on your fare when you GOEAST15 and GONORTH15.
