With the Kaikoura Mountains glorious backdrop to the West and fresh seabreezes to the East, the Coastal Pacific Rail Journey is one of New Zealand’s most picturesque. Explore the Kaikoura Coastline and keep an eye out for the wildlife it is so well known for, then sit back and relax as you travel through the idyllic Canterbury Plains.
Great Journeys New Zealand manage the Seasonal Timetable and scheduled Maintenance Days for both the Coastal Pacific and TranzAlpine rail journeys. If a rail journey is not scheduled to run on a specific date affecting our advertised tour inclusions, this is beyond the control of GPT. Please refer to our Booking Terms and Conditions Touring Disclaimer regarding how a refund will be managed.
