- the best way to explore the Forgotten World


New Zealand rail tours with a difference departing from Taumarunui, Whangamomona and Stratford!

Nestled within the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand’s Forgotten World Highway is the ultimate way to explore rural New Zealand. Travel along decommissioned railway lines, through tunnels, over bridges and rivers and to townships that time forgot.


New on the line this season!

RailBike Logo

Experience the Forgotten World from the  comfort of a rail-cart or rail-bike, cleverly adapted to be self-driven along the tracks of  the Forgotten World railway. 

There are plenty of photo opportunities along the way while taking in ever-changing vistas with our semi guided NZ rail tours.



Our rail carts have been subjected to rigorous testing for reliability,  fitted with specially designed high-rail gear to enable them to travel along the railway track and tested again to be certified to the equivalent of a 155 Kiwirail standard.

Our newly designed and built rail bikes are now operating along a section of the line from Tokirima to Whangamomona. Designed with comfort in mind, you will be able to pedal through some of the remotest and natural areas of the North Island of New Zealand
