TranzAlpine : Prices / Book

One of the world's great train journeys.

Season 2020-2022

Travelling coast to coast through forests and farmland and over the spectacular Southern Alps

The TranzAlpine operates a daily return service between Christchurch and Greymouth.

From the comfort of world class carriages, passengers will see the fields of the Canterbury Plains and farmland, followed by the spectacular gorges and river valleys of the Waimakariri River. The train then climbs into the majestic Southern Alps to Arthurs Pass National Park, before descending through lush beech rainforest to the West Coast town of Greymouth, a great base for visits to Punakaiki and the always-popular glaciers.

One-way fares can be found below. For return or through-way fares please contact us.
