Auckland to Wellington via the Northern Explorer

What a way to see the North Island!  The train ride was comfy and the scenery was stunning. Here is link to the route of the train which gives a good description of each region that I traveled through  There is a series of 5 viaducts over which the train goes very slowly and you can stand outside in the observation car for some great pictures.  Headphones are provided for a description of what you are seeing along the way.  It was a great introduction to how the geography of this beautiful land has shaped it’s people and commerce. Lastly come the views of the Cook Strait and glimpses of the Southern Island.  No WIFI, so bring a good book or download your work before booking.
