Discovering NZ by road and rail. This independent itinerary showcases the iconic trains of the south. TranzAlpine train – Christchurch to Greymouth, and the Coastal Pacific train – Picton to Christchurch. Two of the world’s great scenic train trips, combined with self-drive independence from Greymouth to Picton, driving the dramatic West Coast and the stunning Queen Charlotte Sound coastal road. A two night stop in Nelson with a full day Abel Tasman nature eco cruise and walk, and two nights at Furneaux Lodge on Queen Charlotte Sound put an exclamation mark on this exceptional package.
