A must-see season with an epic 15% off

We'll be serving up New Zealand's best viewing this winter, so join us for an unmissable episode on the Northern Explorer or TranzAlpine

Northern Explorer Must Watch 1000x680

Watch New Zealand's natural beauty online this winter

Turn off the TV and unplug the Internet. This winter's best viewing is going to be taking place outside and we have the best seats in the house for watching it unfold.

Our railways are the original "online" experience, bringing you immersive adventure as we glide through the best of New Zealand's epic scenery. This is why our Scenic carriages feature wide-screen windows and comfy reclined seats, allowing you to sit back and watch the story unfold.

A unique 4-D experience

If the warm-cosy 2D experience isn't enough, then you can step outside and enjoy an authentic 4D experience in our recently reopened Open-air Carriage*. Feel cold air blush your cheeks, rain splash your coat, sunshine warm your skin and snowflakes settle on your tongue. Whatever is happening outside is happening inside our Open-air Carriage!
