Scenic Escapes

Book now

Bringing the best of NZ to you.

Please note: Scenic Escape bookings can only be booked for the Coastal Pacific train. We are currently in the process of releasing a new site and booking engine which we plan to have live by the end of April. Following this bookings involving the TranzAlpine and Northern Explorer will be made available. We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

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.
