TranzAlpine, Coastal Pacific and Northern Explorer Services Covid Alert Level 2 & 3

The TranzAlpine, Northern Explorer and Coastal Pacific schedules are affected due to Covid Alert Level 3 and Level 2. Regretfully the TranzAlpine, Coastal Pacific and Northern Explorer services are now cancelled until at least 01 November 2021. Scenic trains will not be operating in alert level 2 areas as we are unable to provide the service experience we seek to deliver. Unfortuneately, we can't provide our customers with total certainty at this time when services will resume and we appreciate this may be affecting your travel plans. We will advise updates on our websites as soon as a decision has been made on resuming services.

Face masks are now mandatory on all journeys, except when consuming food or drink.

Cook Strait ferry bookings and some daytours and bus routes are also open for sale. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries on 0800 143 669 or info@newzealandtravelteam.com

 We understand that Covid-19 continues to add uncertainty in planning. Should there be cancellation of services due to Covid 19 restrictions, we will offer affected customers a transfer to an alternative date, a credit for 12 months, or a refund, regardless of the fare purchased less a $30 processing fee for the entire reservation.

Cape Reinga & 90 Mile Beach Full Day Tour PIH-PIH ICPCRP (0710-1830)
You can't say you've seen New Zealand until you've travelled all the way to the top! Take this action-packed full day tour to Cape Reinga and discover the beauty of the Far North.

Set off from Paihia in the Bay of Islands and travel north through spectacular scenery. Your driver guide will keep you entertained with stories from Northland's history, from the arrival of the M?ori, through to the coming of European settlers and gumdiggers, to the present day.

During your tour you'll visit the Puketi Kauri Forest and meet a 2,000 year-old kauri tree, drive along through sand and surf on legendary Ninety Mile Beach, and speed down massive sand dunes on a boogie board at Te Paki Stream.

According to M?ori legend, the headland at Cape Reinga is the place where spirits leave New Zealand on their way to the underworld. Walk down to the lighthouse and see the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean collide below you, and soak up the amazing atmosphere of this unique part of New Zealand.

Your tour also includes a traditional Kiwi lunch of fish n' chips - the perfect accompaniment to your Cape Reinga experience. A vegetarian option is also available.
