Lakes & Mountains Escorted Tours

Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, nature takes centre stage - and our lakes and mountains tours showcase scenes that will take your breath away.

Make the journey part of the adventure as you explore the world's iconic mountains by rail. The Alps extend across Europe, providing stunning views of villages nestled in deep valleys and flowering Alpine meadows that turn into rugged mountains. And what better way to discover them than on the world-renowned Glacier or Bernina Express?

The great lakes of the world provide no less scenic wonders, but offer a more sedate experience. Discover waters that dance between shades of emerald and blue, where shores are dotted with elegant villas, ancient towns, and leafy vineyards. From beautiful Garda and Como in Italy, to the often overlooked beauty of Austria's Lake Zell and, further afield, the unparalleled drama found in Canada's national parks. Wherever you go, discover a wealth of extraordinary scenery perfectly suited to explorations by rail.

Come summer or winter, our lakes and mountains rail tours get you back to nature in comfort, offering up a stunning feast for the eyes as well as authentic local experiences. Wind through snow-dusted mountains by train, sip local wines in family-run country estates, or cruise the sparkling waters of the world's most beautiful lakes; there's no better way to see the world.

Austrian Alps All-Inclusive

Mr D Thomas

“Great Rail Journeys were faultless throughout, however, on the journey from Brussels to Austria the German railway system was abysmal. Both legs of the trip (Brussels to Cologne, and then Cologne to Munich ) were plagued with delays and two major engine failure on the locomotive. When we arrived in Austria everything was brilliant, great hotel, excellent food, friendly staff and a well organised and enjoyable itinerary. The GRJ tour manager Steven was amazing,

“Sweitzerland was so pretty. Their trains were clean and bright and their staff at local level were very pleasant. Our hotel was full of character but was too far up the hill in Wengen.

“The hotels were of variable standard. We felt the hotel in Traunkirchen was not of 4 star standard with regard to facilities, room, and the hotel was not particularly well situated. The dinners served in St Moritz were of poor quality and appeared to have been prepared on an extremely tight budget. However the hotel in Innsbruck was excellent and we would have preferred more time there than in Traunkirchen. The total porterage worked excellently which is why we give the tour 4 and not 3.

“It was a good experience with less rail travel than advertised and a somewhat over rigorous schedule for such an age group. Best local guide ever (Aziz).
