TranzAlpine Train-Arthurs Pass or Greymouth LOTR Combo - full day - Pvt Tour ***

Rolling Canterbury farmland lead you into this spectacular wonder of Mother Nature and the filming locations of many Lord of the Rings scenes.

To see these mountains providing the gateway to the West by train AND car is extraordinary. No other tour will surpass it's awesomeness and beauty, while including the Lord of the Rings focus. You can even have your photo taken with some very recognisable LOTR memorabilia.

By train is amazing ...but by train AND car is incredible.

The Southern Alps divide the East from the West of the South Island of New Zealand. Forming part of the ‘Ring of Fire’ also known as the San Andreas fault line, you will be swallowed up with the share enormity of this stunning mountain range.

It's flora and fauna is extraordinary. 30 Million years in the making, the limestone formations are stunning.
