A rail journey is like travel in a bygone era with many European and Worldwide rail journeys available to suit budgets and experience level, perfect if you dislike flying. Travelling by rail means you will never miss a scenic vista whilst you travel in style and comfort.
In recent years, rail has become a fantastic travel alternative for those who don’t wish to fly while offering a brand-new perspective of so many wonderful places that you simply wouldn’t get to see at 30,000ft! You can also say goodbye to lengthy security queues, strict packing restrictions, two-hour check ins, and also lengthy transfers as many train stations are located centrally in their cities making further travel to your hotel or cruise port much shorter.
Where can you take a rail holiday?
Many people would think Europe as the only destination for a great train trip. The fantastic connections between fifty different countries, trips to serene lakes and up snow-capped mountains, not just generic rail but steam engines and luxurious options like the orient express – surely there can’t be more?
Well, that couldn’t be more wrong!
How about a sojourn through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver, paired with an Alaskan cruise? Maybe you want to take the Blue Train in South Africa from Johannesburg to Cape Town on your way to visit game reserves and the garden route? Why not take a 14-night train adventure in Japan to see the best sights and experience the world-famous bullet train? A trans-Mongolian adventure from Moscow all the way to Beijing is a trip like no other. Even Australia and New Zealand both offer exceptional journeys through incredible landscapes that you would simply miss (and take far longer!) by car.
This is a small selection of the destination that we can offer, we cannot wait to tell you more!
