Everyone loves a celebration, and Great Rail Journeys invite you
to join us at a selection of the most spectacular, enjoyable
and unmissable carnivals and festivals around the globe. Whichever
time of the year you prefer to travel you're almost certain to find
a Great Rail Journeys tour that coincides with a local carnival
or festival somewhere in the world.
The beauty of this is that not only do you get to explore some
of the most popular and spectacular destinations in the world,
travelling from one highlight to the next in the comfort and
convenience of a train, but you also have the opportunity to
immerse yourself in the local culture and fun at any of a wide
range of festivities and celebrations.
Among Great Rail Journeys' tour itineraries there are
unmissable carnivals and festivals to please everyone. Music fans
can get into the groove at the annual Montreux Jazz Festival in
July whilst enjoying stunning Alpine scenery on our Lake Geneva
& The Mont Blanc Express. Those with a taste for classical
music will find the Bregenz Festival, Austria, which takes place
each August, an unforgettable highlight of our Lindau and Lake
Constance rail tour.
Few carnivals are as colourful and high-spirited as New Orleans'
legendary Mardi Gras which lasts for a full fortnight each
February. Great Rail Journeys' Tracks of the Deep South rail tour
takes you to the heart of the fun on selected departures.
