Experience the scenic south in style, travelling aboard our exclusive charter train- the refurbished ‘Silver Fern.’ This tour will be a wonderful New Zealand experience. We resume the scenic rail section from Picton and along the Kaikoura coastline to Christchurch after the 2016 earthquake- a credit to the outstanding work that has gone on since.
We traverse the Southern alps in both directions, plus ride the historic Taieri Gorge Train through spectacular Central Otago hinterland. No South Island tour would be complete without including Central Otago, Queenstown, Te Anau and Milford Sound and we take you to these special places. Our tour escorts and hosts ensure your tour is relaxing, fun and memorable.
