The TranzAlpine Train

The TranzAlpine train travels between Greymouth, Arthurs Pass and Christchurch, from one coast of New Zealand to the other.

From your carriage you’ll see the fields of the Canterbury Plains and farmland, followed by the spectacular gorges and river valleys of the Waimakariri River before ascending through the Southern Alps and descending through lush beech rain forest to the West Coast town of Greymouth – a great base for  visits to Punakaiki and the always popular glaciers - Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier.

The TranzAlpine carriages are centrally heated in winter and air conditioned in summer,
with 'Airline' style forward facing seats with head rests and 'Table Group' (4 people around a table) seating. Both styles allow you to experience the amazing views through large panoramic windows,  while enjoying the company of other passengers on-board. 

The TranzAlpine has an open air viewing carriage allows you to get even closer to the stunning scenery and provides many opportunities to photograph your favourite spots plus a Buffet Carriage offering a range of hot/cold drinks, snacks and light meals on route.

There are bus and coach travel from Greymouth to Franz Josef and  Greymouth to Franz Josef and Queenstown.

The TranzAlpine train is reserved seating 'One Class/Non Smoking' service.

The TranzAlpine train does not operate of Christmas Day - 25 December.
