Green Travel Rail Tours

Rail holidays are the perfect way to explore, enjoy and protect our planet

Offering more than three hundred rail tours and holidays in forty countries around the world, it has always been Great Rail Journeys' ambition to introduce travellers to the joys of exploring some of the world's most beautiful, historic and unforgettable destinations by rail.

As travel and tourism is subject nowadays to increased scrutiny in respect of its environmental impact, Great Rail Journeys is, and always has been, committed to providing environmentally responsible green travel. Research demonstrates that rail travel produces a tenth of the harmful greenhouse gases in comparison to air travel.

Besides providing the opportunity to travel on some of the most iconic trains and railways on earth, such as Switzerland's stunningly scenic Alpine Jungfrau Railway, South Africa's luxurious Blue Train and Australia's legendary outback service The Ghan, we're also doing our bit to encourage sustainable tourism by enabling travellers to enjoy memorable tours and holidays whilst journeying on one of the most ecologically-friendly forms of transport.

As a consequence of Great Rail Journeys' dedication to providing environmentally responsible green travel we have been awarded three stars by the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) which acknowledges that we have "gone above and beyond the minimum sustainable tourism requirements expected by AITO". Great Rail Journeys proves that it is possible to enjoy spectacular and unforgettable rail holidays around the world whilst adhering to the principles of environmentally responsible green travel.

It is in everybody's best interests to reduce their carbon footprint and minimise their environmental impact. Taking a proactive approach to environmentally responsible green travel is one practical and effective way in which to do this.

Great Rail Journeys provides holidays and tours to some of the most popular and outstanding destinations in the world, covering Europe, the USA, Canada, India and the Orient, Russia and Asia, South and Central America, Africa and Australasia. And since we focus on travel by rail, ours are amongst the most ecologically-friendly tours and holidays available.

Inevitably some of Great Rail Journeys' holidays involve international flights but we do everything in our power to offset the environmental impact of flights via the adoption of green policies and practices such as waste recycling and energy conservation elsewhere in our business and we encourage those who travel with us to similarly reduce their own 'carbon footprint'. By offering environmentally responsible green travel Great Rail Journeys is helping to ensure that exploring the world by rail is as enjoyable and rewarding for tomorrow's travellers as it is for today's.
