Valentines Weekend

Rail Tour to the Chateau Tongariro

Our escorted velntines weekend from Auckland to the chateau continues to be a popular addition to our new zealand rail tours programme. 

The ‘Northern Explorer’ will take you through the farming hinterland of the Waikato and the rugged King Country and up the famous Raurimu Spiral to National Park.

Our special night is at the Chateau Tongariro, set amongst the tussock of the National Park with an impressive backdrop of the three mountains.

Here we enjoy a sumptuous dinner in convivial surroundings – an evening to remember.

We return home on the Sunday, arriving in Auckland early evening after a relaxing time away.

This trip can be enjoyed by couples, families, friends or singles - for a great summer weekend at the Chateau.
