Scenic Tours Holidays

Visually stunning scenic train tours

Those who hear the call of the wild will find our scenic train tours to their taste. These tours, focused on beautiful scenery, are visual smörgåsbords. Enjoy unsurpassed views from our trains and our resorts are in some of the most magnificent locations. 

The smörgåsbord is a perfect analogy for our scenic train tours. Each has its own theme, or flavour, which varies by region but they are bound together by a dedication to sample some of the world's finest scenes. Unlike other modes of transport, journeying by train allows travellers time to relax and focus on the view. In a car there are always distractions (like driving!) but the train is a perfect vehicle for enjoying the panoramic views, which makes our scenic train tours the perfect touring holiday.
