Escorted Winter Rail Tours

Tours by rail in winter

As winter arrives and a blanket of snow settles across the continent, holidaymakers across Europe head for warmer climes. Only the skiers stay, heading for The Alps and making the most of the natural playground created for them by metres of snow.

However, winter in Europe offers so much. As skiers will tell you, the towns and villages are transformed in the winter into thriving, enchanting places, while the scenery becomes even more beautiful and spectacular than it is in summer. And in winter, you might be surprised to learn that Europe enjoys some of its finest weather - February is Switzerland's driest month!

While the UK remains cold, windy, wet and miserable, Europe comes alive with winter spirit, as towns and landscapes are transformed by the changing season. Our collection of wonderful winter rail tours allows you to make the most of this superb time of year, travelling to charming towns and villages, enjoying landscapes transformed by snow as you travel on the fantastic trains running as normal and on time, throughout the winter, regardless of the conditions outside.
