Winter & Spring Escorted Rail Journeys

Fresh snow blankets the landscape, transforming it into a serene wonderland on guided winter rail journeys. Icicles hang from the trees like sparkling ornaments and bustling town squares take on a hushed allure that invites peaceful strolling and quiet introspection. As spring comes and the snow melts in our favourite Alpine destinations, the scenery is transformed and nature comes to life - revealing glorious flower-filled meadows and lush hills. It's the perfect time to travel on spring rail journeys in the Mediterranean and Morocco to experience sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
