Over the hills and through the Pass on KiwiRail

New Zealand truly is a beautiful place to visit. And one of the best ways to see it is by train.

The TranzAlpine whisks passengers from Christchurch and takes them through a rugged but scenic mountain landscape.

The open-air viewing car is the best “seat” in the house. Except when they close it for an 8-plus km tunnel.
