Alpine Springtime bookings now open!
As the mountains explode with colour, springtime is an incredible time of year to voyage through the Alps aboard our TranzAlpine scenic train journey
Welcome to a world of high contrast
The TranzAlpine scenic train journey through springtime is a story of contrasts. Weaving through an endless network of lush river valleys, a vibrant montage of yellow and green explodes against the monochromatic backdrop of sparkling snow-capped mountains.
It is the season of colour, and there are few sights more brilliant than the views through the TranzAlpine's windows as she meanders through the Southern Alps. From the comfort of your seat, you will witness once of the world's great journeys in full colour!
Timeless views, for a limited time
Spring always seems to fly by too soon. But this year, catching our springtime TranzAlpine scenic train journey is going to be a little rarer than normal.
From September, we'll be running a limited edition "long weekend" service, operating Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday only, plus a daily service during the school holidays. The limited services will still run to the standard TranzAlpine Timetable.
So book your seat soon to join this year's limited edition!
