FORGOTTEN WORLD ADVENTURES

- 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. 

 

Experience the Forgotten World from the  comfort of a rail-cart, 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.

Operating summer rail tours departing from three locations -

Taumarunui- the heart of the King Country

Stratford- the heart of Taranaki

and the self proclaimed republic of Whangamomona!

OUR RAIL CARTS

OUR RAIL BIKES

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.

Beginning next season, our newly designed and built rail bikes will be operating along a section of the line. 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
