Wellington Scenic Trains
Wellington is a beautiful New Zealand city built on the bay’s water front and extends back up the forested green mountain valleys. Wellington Scenic Trains are a great way to discover the beauty of New Zealand’s famously breath-taking countryside. Travel through the incredible centre of the North Island towards Auckland or along the rugged coastline of the South Island towards Christchurch.
Some Wellington scenic trains may offer a range of comforts and conveniences in world class carriages such as an on-board café, panoramic windows, audio commentary and delicious food. Seat back and relax in your scenic train as you roll through mountain tunnels and across rolling farmland with full view of majestic mountain ranges.
