Rail Tours in Austria, Switzerland and The Alps

The Alps are a huge and striking range of mountains and peaks that extend across several European countries, providing stunning views from snow-peaked mountains to lush green valleys and majestic lakes. Escorted train holidays through the Alps travel to many locations of beauty, with popular and particularly scenic ranges being found in Switzerland, Austria, Spain and on the borders of France and Italy. Some of the most well known sights, and most incredible railways and train journeys, can be experienced when visiting the Alps, such as the Jungfrau Railway and the very famous Glacier Express.

As with all Rail Discoveries' holidays, the services of one of our experienced Tour Managers are included to ensure that every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly and to provide any advice or assistance that you may require.

Holidays by train to Switzerland are extremely scenic and there's a lovely range of scnery to appreciate as the train passes through charming villages nestled in deep valleys and forests, before ascending into flowering alpine meadows, eventually turning into rugged mountains surrounded by snow-covered embankments and icy glaciers.
