Scenic Tranzalpine train journey to Arthur’s Pass

Archer Tours Tranzalpine train Arthur's Pass panoramic view

It was an early start, but a few hearty souls braved the frosty conditions and hopped aboard the warm carriages of the Tranzalpine Train to enjoy the picturesque journey to Arthur’s Pass.

There wasn’t a lot of snow but the white frost, icy puddles and low-lying cloud against the snow-capped mountains made for some beautiful winter scenery.

Lunch was enjoyed in Arthur’s Pass followed by a drive to the Viaduct Lookout, then it was back to Christchurch in the Archer vans.

Overall, the general consensus was it was well worth the early start to the day and everyone slept well that night!
