By KiwiRail

Travel over massive viaducts, river valleys and spectacular gorges as you ascend to Arthur’s Pass located in the centre of the Southern Alps.

Ferry

Ferries are popular for travel between the North and South Islands. The two major providers are InterIslander?and Bluebridge, and fares start at NZ$55 for foot passengers. Taking the ferry means you’ll experience the beautiful Marlborough Sounds?on your way into or out of Picton.

Ferry travel is also available between the mainland and New Zealand’s offshore islands, including Waiheke,?Rangitoto?and Great Barrier near Auckland city, and Stewart Island?just below the South Island. In some coastal areas, ferries connect towns which are closer via water than via road – including Russell and Paihia?in the Bay of Islands.

Water taxis?are smaller vessels which offer a scheduled service visiting the small ports which ferries can’t reach – handy for reaching out of the way hiking and mountain biking spots in places like Queen Charlotte Sounds and Abel Tasman National Park.
