TranzAlpine Train - Christchurch to Greymouth and vice versa

TranzAlpine Train

The TranzAlpine is one of the world’s great scenic train trips from one coast of New Zealand to another through the dramatic contrast of dry beech forests and tussock land on one side of the Alps and lush green landscapes on the other. From Christchurch, cross the patchwork farmland of the Canterbury plains, follow the Waimakariri River, climbing into alpine scenery on a series of spectacular viaducts. Then, after stopping at Arthur's Pass, emerge from the long Otira Tunnel and descend through sub tropical rain forest past beautiful Lake Brunner and on to Greymouth

Schedule:

The TranzAlpine runs daily departing Christchurch at 8:15 am.  It stops at Greymouth for 1 hour before departing Greymouth at 2:05 pm and arriving back at Christchurch at 6:31 pm. The TranzAlpine does not run on Christmas day.
