Train Travel

The West Coast is poorly served by rail, but the exception is the TranzAlpine Express, which ranks as one of the world's great rail journeys. The train crosses the Southern Alps between Christchurch and Greymouth, winding through southern beech forests and snow-covered mountains. The train is modern and comfortable, with panoramic windows and a no-frills dining and bar service.
