The award-winning TranzAlpine train runs daily from coast to coast - from Christchurch to Greymouth. It is rated as one of the top six scenic train journeys in the world. After crossing the patchwork farmlands of the Canterbury Plains, the TranzAlpine winds its way over massive viaducts, through river gorges and into the ice-fed Waimakariri River Valley. It tracks its way up and across the spectacular Southern Alps via the alpine village of Arthur's Pass, situated at 737 metres above sea level, before descending through lush beech forests to Greymouth on the rugged West Coast.
Prices from £98 per person (Christchurch- Greymouth and vice-versa)

The South Island's Coastal Pacific service provides a daily link between Christchurch and the picturesque port of Picton, where it connects with the Interislander Ferry.

For over 100 kilometres it runs along a thin ledge of land pinned between the Pacific Ocean and the rugged Kaikoura Ranges. Break your journey in Kaikoura to experience unique whale watching cruises, before the route passes the rural farmlands of North Canterbury and arrives into Christchurch.
