Travelling the world by train can be a great way to see places that are hard to access by other means and when we say travelling by train, we’re not talking about an experience like the one you might have every morning when you take the 8.35 into Euston before work. We’re talking about luxury carriages with your personal tour manager on hand, ready to look after your every whim as you glide past panoramas of unbelievable scenery. As you travel past mountains, wildernesses, canyons or lakes you’ll discover something new and exciting around every bend, from fairytale castles to snowy peaks and flower-filled meadows. Bear in mind as well, that you won’t be spending all of your time on the train. There will be plenty of opportunities to alight your carriage and discover the landscape around you.
Some of our most popular rail journeys are in Europe, such as the Danube Express, which travels through all the treasures of Eastern Europe. The Glacier Express through St Moritz is also popular. Rail travel will take you not just across a country, but through an entire continent as well. Why not take in diverse landscapes on the TransSiberian Express through Russia, the Maharaja Express which travels through India and the Blue Train which will take you from Pretoria to Cape Town in South Africa. It’s also possible to have a close-up experience with the steam age. Why not take a steam train through Germany?
Great Rail Journeys is a trusted travel associate of Aspen Travel and the one which immediately springs to mind when you think about rail travel, however, there are other companies such as Titan Tours, Bales Worldwide, Colette Worldwide, Cosmos and Travelsphere who also offer something similar.
