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.

Winter rail journeys and spring rail journeys are one of the best ways to avoid over crowding from tourists. All of our itineraries are carefully plotted to unveil the hidden depths of a destination, by combining both major attractions and little known sights with the intimate knowledge of a local guide. The draw of the most stunning and culturally interesting attractions is obvious all year round but travelling in spring is a fabulous way to see the spring blossoming of life after winter and enjoy unrivalled access to some of the world's finest destinations on our winter rail journeys.

Our customers love our Winter & Spring tours
Floriade and Keukenhof Gardens or Amsterdam
9/Oct
Elizabeth
5 stars
“The Floriade was a wonderful day with the best weather of our holiday. Arriving early meant we had lots of space to wander round and ride the cable car. Delft was a good base, and our hotel was well located. There is lots to see and do in Delft. Our Tour Manager was helpful and very approachable. The small group size was ideal, and we had good company.

“This was 4th GRJ trip we’ve done. Everything is well organised and you feel safe while away. We must admit it’s the Tour Guide that either makes or breaks it. Kate was absolutely brilliant on this trip.

“Well organised and enjoyable trip with an excellent tour leader in Caroline Bryan. Good hotels - Freieck in Chur did the best breakfast I've eaten on the continent. Bernerhof pretty good too. Booking staff helpful especially when we had to change arrangements to get to London due to rail strikes. Very pleased with the luggage transfer service - GRJ should make more of this in publicity. Similarly for the coach transfers between Paris stations. Have never liked travelling through Paris since a long ago attempt attempted theft on the Metro so coach transfer great. Drawbacks, not many, perhaps more meals could have been included. Also we could have got an earlier Eurostar back from Paris: that would have helped us get home at a more sensible time but overall a good scenic holiday. At the reduced price it was reasonable value for money
