A Chateau Weekend Celebration

With the re-introduction of the Northern Explorer

Join us for this celebration to a weekend at the Chateau Tongariro on our escorted rail tour. Enjoy the relaxing comforts of the ‘Northern Explorer’ as you travel through the Waikato farming hinterland and on through the rugged King Country. 

One of the features is the famous Raurimu Spiral where the train climbs up to the Central Plateau before arriving at National Park. Our special night is at the Chateau, set magnificently amongst the tussock of Tongariro National Park with its three impressive mountains as a backdrop. Relax and enjoy a special evening including dinner. After a relaxing morning we return on the Sunday to arrive back in Auckland early evening.
