Winter & Spring Escorted Rail Journeys

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. 

As spring comes and the snow melts in our favourite Alpine destinations, the scenery is transformed and nature comes to life - revealing glorious flower-filled meadows and lush hills. It's the perfect time to travel on spring rail journeys in the Mediterranean and Morocco to experience sunshine and pleasant temperatures.

Winter rail journeys and spring rail journeys are one of the best ways to avoid over crowding from tourists. All of our itineraries are carefully plotted to unveil the hidden depths of a destination, by combining both major attractions and little known sights with the intimate knowledge of a local guide. The draw of the most stunning and culturally interesting attractions is obvious all year round but travelling in spring is a fabulous way to see the spring blossoming of life after winter and enjoy unrivalled access to some of the world's finest destinations on our winter rail journeys.

Classic Glacier Express

Mr John Aliband
4 stars
“Very well organised trip, and certainly lived up to its promise to show outstanding Swiss scenery. Travel on Swiss railways was easy, and comfortable, and the hotel accommodation was generally very good. The only reason we haven't given 5 stars is that we kept that rating for the Rocky Mountaineer trip which we did in 2019.

J Mott

“We enjoyed our holiday with Glacier express for various reasons. The organisation was good though the first days travel was too long. We only had 8 couples on our trip including the tour manager, which seemed a good amount.

Mr G Whittaker
4 stars
“A very enjoyable and well-packaged holiday, with an experienced and very approachable tour manager. Excellent traditional hotels. Extremely good value for money. But …. The group was FAR too large for a "First Class" holiday - and that would stop me trusting GRJ's descriptions in future !! Too many changes to the published itinerary. Not a good idea to have long and tiring day trips on either the first day in Switzerland or the last day before travel home.

Mrs G Lunt
4 stars
“We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions and being based in Wernigerode. The hotel was very clean and comfortable but there was little fresh bread at breakfast and the food at the evening buffets was of variable quality.

Mrs L Godson
4 stars
“It was an excelkent holiday. The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars was because of one or two reservations about the hotel.
