We will collect you from your cruise ship berthed in the port of Lyttelton and from Christchurch travel by road to Springfield at the foothills of the Southern Alps.

At Springfield, board the world famous TranzAlpine train: a train journey which is rated as one of the top ten train journeys in the world. Travel through the Southern Alps to Arthurs Pass viewing spectacular alpine scenery through panoramic windows.

In Arthurs Pass we meet the train and then tour by road over the snow-capped Southern Alps in the Arthurs Pass National Park and on to the Otira Gorge making photo stops on route. Visit the old village of Otira before returning to Arthurs Pass for lunch.

Following lunch there will be time to explore the village prior to departing Arthurs Pass and returning to Christchurch by road travelling again through the majestic Southern Alps and Alpine Passes, with river valleys, lakes and towering peaks as a backdrop. On route you will stop for an exhilarating jet boat ride through the spectacular gorges of the Waimakariri River, travelling up river to areas inaccessible by road.

Following the jet boating, a visit will be made to a high-country farm for afternoon tea, followed by a sheep shearing and sheep dog mustering demonstration. From there you will continue to Christchurch and be returned to your cruise ship in Lyttelton.
