Christmas Escorted Holidays & Rail Tours

Powdery snow that crunches underfoot, candles at Midnight Mass and the jingle of bells as your horse-drawn sleigh slides through the forest combine with festive meals and traditional celebrations on our Christmas rail tours. Somehow the true spirit of Christmas is easier to find in the right setting. Whether we are gathering to turn on the Christmas tree lights in a quaint medieval village or speeding across snow-covered plains on festively decorated trains, this will be a Christmas to remember on one of our festive Christmas tours.

Maggie Lodge
4 stars
“Fabulous Scenery ..Hotel Metropole Interlaken lovely. Only complaints were dinner every night not good..Spaghetti with Veal and Cabbage for Christmas Dinner..Chef needs replacing for one with better ideas. Also expected to walk to and from Hotel to Railway Station..no transport provided walk was about half a mile at least ..Not good if you are elderly of have problems..Taxis €20 each way which added to your spending ..We were not expecting. Tour Guide nice..Excursions amazing .. Luggage on trains a BIG problem

“The experience was very good but the main food courses and waitress service in the 4* hotel was not what we expected. Katie Leigh our tour guide made up for that disappointment.

“The first time I have done Christmas away in the Uk. It was good and the scenery in Scotland is lovely. The hotel was very busy, as expected, and mealtimes were drawn out affairs, lasting 2hours.

All of our Christmas rail tours are escorted by a Tour Manager who meets you in London and stays on hand throughout the holiday, ready to deal with any small problems that may arise. Our Tour Managers also have a good knowledge of the destinations that our guests visit, which means that if you are unsure how to spend your free days they will be able to advise you on the best sights and excursions in the region.

Escape the stresses of the festive period back home and treat yourself to one of our outstanding Christmas holidays by train. With a vast range of incredible places to visit, Great Rail Journeys really do provide something to suit everyone, offering our travellers a unique and memorable experience. Due to their immense popularity, early booking will ensure you obtain your ideal Christmas break.

As an alternative to a Christmas holiday by train, why not also have a look at our wonderful selection of Christmas markets breaks? You can choose from a wide selection of festive breaks in Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg as well as in the UK.
