Witness the scenic magic of the South Island unfold before you as you ride the Tranzalpine Train from the east to west coast. Then, meet your guide and hike in the Arthur's Pass National Park, followed by a scenic drive down the spectacular Otira Gorge and a visit to the Cave Stream.
Experience the South Island's striking natural landscape as you ride on the Tranzalpine Train, one of the world's most scenic train journeys covering 223km one way. Along this journey, you will see epic mountain vistas, travel the edges of the ice-fed Waimakariri River and traverse the Southern Alps. Hop off in Arthur's Pass and meet your guide for a recharging lunch at a local country hotel. Then, head to the Arthur's Pass National Park for a guided 2-4 hour hike, tailored to your group's ability. Characterised by vast beech forests and rivers, and home to the Kea a cheeky mountain parrot, it's a nature lover's paradise.
After your walk, you will head back into the city via minibus, following the old stage coach route and down the spectacular Otira Gorge. Visit the Cave Stream where it burrows underground in an area of limestone cliffs and gorges, rocky outcrops and a backdrop of mountains from east to west. The return journey takes you over Porter's Pass and crosses the Canterbury Plains to Christchurch, where you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
