Special Interest Holidays

Special interest holidays on extra special guided group train tours

Our special interest holidays offer tours to suit a variety of tastes. Experience some of Europe's finest carnivals, with music flowing from every street corner and elaborately costumed dancers parading through the city streets. Discover our walking holidays, featuring the opportunity to enjoy the exhilarating mountain air whilst strolling through beautiful Alpine landscapes. Waltz the night away at a Viennese ball, a truly elegant affair not to be missed by those who appreciate the finer things in life, or travel to Scotland to celebrate the birth of the nation's favourite poet, Robert Burns on our special interest tours.

Special interest group holidays are as varied and special as the people who take them. At Great Rail Journeys our holidays are selected for people who appreciate a high standard of comfort. The flagship tour for our carnival holidays is Venice's Carnevale, which offers exuberance and colour with spine tingling luxury. Providing a comprehensive list of all the possible combinations of special interest tours would be a herculean task which is why we are proud to announce GRJ independent, which offers tailor made holidays by train.
