Day 1: Christchurch – Greymouth – Franz Josef
We pick you up from your accomodation and transport you to the Christchurch train station, where you will travel on the TranzAlpine train to Greymouth. See some awe inspiring alpine scenery as you travel through Arthurs Pass National Park and onto the West Coast of New Zealand, on a train journey voted one of the best in the world. Upon arrival in Greymouth, travel by road to Franz Josef, home of the magnificent Franz Josef Glacier.
