Departing Blenheim on 23rd April 2021 for 12-days – Journey with us into the deep south of New Zealand and experience the postcard perfect vistas and dramatic alpine scenery that this part of the world is renowned for.

You will spend the first week travelling the entire length of the South Island (visiting Kaikoura, Christchurch, Oamaru, Dunedin and Invercargill), in the comfort of vintage carriages hauled by the historic WW1 memorial steam locomotive Ab608 Passchendaele (named in honour of our fallen soldiers at The Battle of Passchendaele in 1917).

Once you have reached Invercargill at the bottom of the mainland, we begin the traverse inland on luxury coaches to experience the wonders of Te Anau, Milford Sound, Queenstown and Franz Josef, before the home stretch to Christchurch on the iconic TranzAlpine via Arthur’s Pass.
