Escorted Winter Rail Holidays

Embark on a winter escape and step into a world of snow-globe seasonal beauty, discovering a new side to a place you thought you knew. Visit chocolate-box towns set against wintry mountain backdrops, or explore culture-rich cities where enticing cafés offer respite from the winter air. No matter where you go, there's no denying the magic of this time of year.

Travel in comfort through pretty winter wonderlands, seeing the scenery in a whole new light and reaching places that wouldn't be possible on any other form of transport. There's nothing quite like enjoying the cosy warmth of a train carriage as you speed past icy scenery outside, the train's windows serving as the perfect picture frame. Then, once you're in the heart of your destination, soak up culture without the bustling summer crowds. Sample delicious local flavours, experience spectacular seasonal excursions, and enjoy time to explore off-the-beaten-path - we've perfected the recipe for the dream winter getaway.

Whether you're winding through snow-dusted landscapes on a classic train or wrapped up warm seeing the sights on a city tour, let us show you the world in a whole new light this winter.

Mr G Whittaker
4 stars
“A very enjoyable and well-packaged holiday, with an experienced and very approachable tour manager. Excellent traditional hotels. Extremely good value for money. But …. The group was FAR too large for a "First Class" holiday - and that would stop me trusting GRJ's descriptions in future !! Too many changes to the published itinerary. Not a good idea to have long and tiring day trips on either the first day in Switzerland or the last day before travel home.

Mrs G Lunt
4 stars
“We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions and being based in Wernigerode. The hotel was very clean and comfortable but there was little fresh bread at breakfast and the food at the evening buffets was of variable quality.

Miss A Halford

“Good value, very comfortable hotel with helpful staff. The trips were varied & much enjoyed. One member of the group was repeating the same trip having done it the year before. Our leader was very attentive and we formed into a friendly cohesive group.
