2017 Mid Winter Christmas Chateau Tongariro Rail Special
10 - 11 June 2017 Including Mid-Winter Christmas Dinner
Escorted by Susanne Kiely
Our escorted Mid-Winter Christmas weekend to the Chateau continues to be a popular addition to our New Zealand Rail tours programme. The Chateau, set magnificently amongst the tussock of Tongariro National Park with three impressive mountains as a backdrop is an ideal place to relax. Our groups enjoy the relaxing comforts of the ‘Northern Explorer’ travelling through the Waikato farming hinterland and the rugged hills of the King Country. One of the features en-route is the famous Raurimu Spiral, where the train climbs up to the Central Plateau before arriving at National Park. After an enjoyable evening which includes a sumptuous Christmas dinner, we return on the Sunday, arriving in Auckland early evening. Why not join us as we journey to the heart of the North Island for a relaxing weekend.
