Seasonal Themes

Whether you wish to get into the festive spirit with a Christmas Market break, or to perhaps take a holiday over Christmas or New Year; if you'd rather enjoy a winter adventure in snow-covered Europe, or even enjoy some winter sunshine in destinations further afield, we have a number of special escorted tours to mark the season.

Northern lights

Winter & Spring


Fresh snow blankets the landscape, transforming it into a serene wonderland on guided winter rail journeys. Icicles hang from the trees like sparkling ornaments and bustling town squares take on a hushed allure that invites peaceful strolling and quiet introspection.

We believe that customers who plan ahead should not be penalised by paying a higher fare than last minute bookers. We believe the pricing for our great rail holidays fair and reasonable no matter when you book so we do not offer any "last minute discounts". If we reduce the price of our tours we apply the discount to everyone, including customers who have already booked. When you book a great rail holiday with us you will always get the best price and have nothing to lose by booking ahead to guarantee a place on our most popular great rail holidays.
