Lakes & Mountains Escorted Tours

Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, nature takes centre stage - and our lakes and mountains holidays 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 holidays 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.
