An epic voyage on the Northern Explorer train

One of the biggest highlights of your Wellington City Break will be the journey.

Climbing aboard the Northern Explorer in Auckland or Hamilton, your Wellington break will start in relaxing style as you ease back in your reclined seat and enjoy the views through your panoramic window. 

Along the way, you'll see hobbits and orcs and wizards - well, maybe, on a clear day. But this is Middle Earth, and highlights do include the conical peak of the volcano Ngauruhoe, which featured as Mount Doom in LOTR. And the rural scenery of rolling hills, paddocks, and pastures is also reminiscent of the Shire. 

Soaring viaducts and the historical Raurimu Spiral are also highlights of this day long adventure through the heart of the North Island. And with our licensed bar serving drinks throughout the afternoon, this will certainly be a relaxing start to your break.
