Travel New Zealand on our scenic NZ trains
Climb aboard our scenic NZ train services and see the best of our beautiful Aotearoa scenery from the comfort of your seat whilst travelling around our major cities and tourist destinations on New Zealand rail.
If you are familiar with famous Australian trains, such as The Ghan and Indian Pacific, or Canada's Rocky Mountaineer, or the great Orient Express, then our philosophy is similar.
However, we like to keep things more understated and casual.
We let the scenery deliver the thrills, and our huge panoramic windows and Open-air Viewing carriages bring New Zealand's outstanding natural beauty to your seat. Meanwhile, the relaxed carriage atmosphere and local crew deliver that authentic, friendly, New Zealand charm.
