Rail Holidays

Escorted Train Holidays

From the Petit Train Jaune through the sun-soaked French Pyrenees to Japan's iconic bullet trains and the "toy train" that winds through the Himalayan foothills from Kandaghat to Shimla, the world is criss-crossed by unique, unforgettable rail journeys.

Watch the winding river canyons and pristine forests of Canada's most scenic train ride roll by from the comfort of the Rocky Mountaineer, or admire Austrian mountain pastures from the carriages of the Zillertal Steam Railway. Take a vintage train tour through the rolling hills and pastures of the Isle of Man, or across the glens and moors of the Scottish Highlands.

Explore the glorious scenery of the Dolomites on board the Renon railway, or soak up the astonishing Alpine views as you ride the Bernina Express to St Moritz. Travel to St Petersburg from Moscow's Leningrad Station, or see the forest-filled valleys of Norway's fjordlands as the world-famous Flamsbana railway carries you from Myrdal to Flam.

Whether your carriages are steam-hauled along lovingly restored lines or diesel-hauled on scheduled routes, and whether your rail holiday takes you to Europe, Canada or even further afield, you'll be free to let the train take the strain as you travel to fascinating destinations, and explore exhilarating heights often inaccessible by road.
