Escape the roads, forget the rush, sit back and Explore with us!

It is a long journey between Auckland and Wellington, but on the Northern Explorer train it is an amazing journey! As we travel through the heart of the North Island, we bring the full spectrum of New Zealand's famous scenery to you through huge panoramic windows. We also traverse incredible viaducts, roam beneath the volcanoes of Tongariro and skirt along the sparkling Kapiti coastline. It is an epic trip that you'll never forget!

What's more, with a Flexi or Flexi Plus ticket, you can explore the North Island at your own pace, as these fares allow you to hop on and off wherever you like along the way at no extra charge. Popular stops on the Northern Explorer are Hamilton, Waitomo Caves (Otorohanga), Tongariro National Park, and Ohakune - each of these top destinations is home to adventure and relaxation in equal measures.

If you are an overseas AA Member or holder of any other Show Your Card & Save enabled membership card, then you can use the following Northern Explorer discounts, giving you up to 20% off.

So come and explore the North Island with us in style!
