Travel through rolling green farmland, past quaint country towns and along rocky coasts.

Traverse stunning river gorges and wind through the Raurimu Spiral near National Park, an amazing feat of railway engineering. 
While on board enjoy the journey in award winning world-class carriages with specially designed seats.
