TranzAlpine & High Country Explorer Tour

Full Day including Lunch

Price from £204 per person

This is New Zealand’s only one-day adventure consisting of a seamless journey by 4 modes of transport – The TranzAlpine Train, Four Wheel Drive, Jet Boat and Coach. The day begins in Christchurch on board the world-famous TranzAlpine Train. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a journey across the fertile Canterbury Plains, through rugged foothills, along stunning river gorges, through tunnels and across viaducts into the picturesque Arthur’s Pass National Park, in the heart of New Zealand’s snow-capped Southern Alps. Then it’s time to board the next mode of transport. Travel by four-wheel drive to Flock Hill Lodge for a 3-course lunch (included). After lunch, set off on a 23 kilometre safari of an area inaccessible to the public and explore the vast 35,000-acre Flock Hill sheep station. Next, arrive at the Waimakariri River to board a jet boat, as continuing the journey by river downstream 15 kilometres to Woodstock Station for afternoon tea in a secluded riverside lodge. For the final leg of the journey, board a coach as you travel back across the Canterbury Plains to Christchurch City.
