What is Minimum Travel Time?

The days indicate the time it would take to complete the pass if you stayed on the bus and did not hop-off. All passes can be completed in a shorter time simply by hopping-off before the scheduled end point. Across the winter months, we sometimes reduce our weekly departures which may affect these timings. Be sure to check out the latest timetables on our website or speak to our Reservations Team.

About this experience

Unlike the TranzAlpine Dog Leg pass, the Kea heads up the coastline from Christchurch instead of cutting straight over to the West Coast. This way you get to see Nelson, the Abel Tasman National Park and its famous golden beaches.

This New Zealand travel pass also gives you the chance to travel Christchurch to Kaikoura twice​​ which is pretty lucky really because Kaikoura is one of our Driver Guides favourite spots and there’s plenty to do there. After catching a ferry or flight across the Cook Straight you’ll then get to take in North Islands best highlights before finishing in Auckland.​​​
