Winter & Spring

Winter and spring Escorted Rail Journeys

Two of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As snowflakes drop on rugged mountain peaks and glistening rivers freeze over into cool ice, many countries in Europe turn into winter wonderlands.

We have carefully planned and chosen each of our holidays by train to introduce guests to many of the most beautiful natural, cultural and historic attractions in the place that they are visiting. This could be a natural wonder such as the Alps or a vibrant cultural attraction like a yearly carnival. Europe is full of interesting highlights and attractions from medieval castles to historic cities, and our many tours and holidays by train are designed to showcase the best a destination has to offer. We also provide a range of holidays by rail at specific times of the year, such as our festive breaks which include trips to European Christmas markets and celebratory New Year holidays. 

Each of our themed train holidays includes all of the travel and accommodation in the price of the tour with a range of meals and excursions also included. Popular excursions that accompany many of our holidays by train are city tours, trips to iconic landmarks and journeys on heritage railways to beauty spots that are often inaccessible by other modes of transport. An experienced Tour Manager joins our holidays to ensure everything runs smoothly, leaving you with peace of mind from the moment you leave your home. Browse our themes and choose from our range of incredible holidays by train.
