Classic rail journeys are quintessential adventures. From the
beaches of Cape Town to the snowbound peak of Jungfrau in the Swiss
Alps our flagship tours combine the luxury of a great rail tour
with the excitement of global travel and have proven themselves
favourites with our customers year after year. Our classic rail
journeys section covers a broad selection of our favourite tours
but for longer epic adventures see our Grand Tours section.
One of the things that makes rail travel so unique, so romantic
and so fascinating is the long history behind railways and trains.
A myriad of stories and tales, both fictional and non-fictional
give certain trains and rail routes an almost legendary status in
our eyes, making these tours truly something to remember. From the
dizzying heights of Swiss railways to the Canadian Rocky
Mountaineer, classic rail journeys are found across the globe, and
our Great Rail Journeys' catalogue feature a wide selection
combining our excellent escorted experience with the beauty of a
classic railway trip.
These classic tours are our favourites simply because of how
they take the brilliance of a rail tour and apply it to some of
the most beautiful and most memorable locations in the world. We
love how they embellish the charm of the Italian coasts, how they
showcase the magic of the South American Andes and how they uncover
the dramatic wilderness of South Africa. We love how they bring out
the magnificent colours of India, how they explore the stunning
landscapes of Australia and how they trundle up the Norwegian
fjords. Most of all, we love them for the longevity of the memories
they produce and how the experiences, excursions and destinations
will always be remembered.
Take a look at our classic rail journeys selection below which
features rail experiences around the world, and enjoy discovering
your next once-in-a-lifetime tour.
