About the Northern Explorer
Experience the North Island’s extraordinary range of scenery in one journey as the Northern Explorer takes you through rolling green farmland and virgin bush, past quaint country towns and along rocky coasts. The journey through Tongariro National Park, with its three spectacular volcanic mountains – Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu – is a highlight, a place of extremes and surprises, where snow-blanketed fields, ancient lava flows and dense beech forests can be seen side by side.

To receive the three night package you must depart on Thursday and return on Sunday or depart on Saturday and return on Tuesday:

Thursday/Saturday departures
Departs Auckland Strand at 7:45am
Arrives Wellington at 6:25pm

Tuesday/Sunday departures
Departs Wellington at 7:55am
Arrives Auckland Strand at 6:50pm
