  1. Ah, this is perfect timing! I’m in the process of researching for my trip to New Zealand (my readers voted for me to move there, and I’ll be arriving early in February) and hadn’t yet heard anything about the train services available.

    Needless to say, after reading this I’ll be hopping on for the 12 hour ride instead of snagging a flight. Sounds like a great experience (and I love trains)!

    Very well written.

    Hi Colin, good to see you here again. Crowdsourcing your country location? Classy, mate!

    If you enjoyed this, you’ll love the next ITP travel magazine; we’ve got a massive New Zealand summer feature, so it’ll be perfect for you.

    We should still be around, probably packing furiously, when you arrive in early February. Make sure you look us up for a welcome/goodbye drink or three.

  3. Brilliant – now I have a new train route to fall in love with! I try to take the train wherever I go…it’s such a great way to see the country.

  4. wow i now so want to go there and have a journey to remember all my life

    Haha! We’re just editing a piece on the Andes Mountain train … wait a week or two and we’ll see how excited you get then. Even though we’re always travelling, editing awesome travel stories makes you so … so … jealous!

  6. Great piece, this might have to be my warmup for the Trans-Siberian Railway

      Don’t get me started on the Trans Siberian … I’m so looking forward to doing that one day!

  7. Looks incredible. I travelled New Zealand by car before, but the train looks like a whole new adventure, definitely one to consider for the future, thank you 🙂
