Scenic Escapes

Bringing the best of NZ to you.

Please note: We are transitioning to a new Scenic Escape booking system. We apologise for any inconvenience and recommend you book hotels/activities independently.

Whether it’s whale watching in Kaikoura, walking Mt Ruapehu or soaking in the natural beauty of the West Coast, KiwiRail Scenic Journeys brings you the best experiences that NZ has to offer. Along with a comfortable train journey through scenic landscapes, each package focuses on an iconic kiwi experience and the finest local accommodation when an overnight stay is needed.

We've personally checked out all these packages to ensure quality is maintained and the little things aren’t overlooked. For example, transfers are included in most of our packages so there’s no chance of ending up stranded. If you have questions about our packages you can check out our FAQ's or contact us.

Scenic Escape packages can only be booked online.
