After enjoying a moment of railway "awe," you will hop aboard the heritage train as you travel across the iconic landscape of central Otago. The route was chosen back in 1877 from seven possibilities, with the final decision coming from the fact that it highlighted the beauty of the area while presenting the fewest engineering difficulties. Your route covers the segment that goes deep into the Taieri Gorge with the final pivot point of Middle March station. Guided commentary will point out the famous landmarks, giant viaducts, and historic bridges. Before boarding, your guide will give you a complimentary cheese board and bottle of New Zealand bubbly to snack on as you admire the views. The traditional carriages have many of the old fittings and provide access to open air balconies at each end. Choo -hoo!
Following your memorable train ride, your guide will escort you back into the vehicle and take you on a city highlights tour. The city center, New Zealand's first university, the world's steepest street, and the beautiful Signal Hill Lookout are just a handful of the additional locations you will visit!
