Train Du Gorges
It's all aboard for a heritage rail journey with a difference.
We often say that trains take you to places you couldn't see
otherwise, and that is exactly the case with The Train des Gorges
which traverses a particularly striking natural wonder, the Gorges
du Doux. Inaccessible by every other mode of transport, you'll be
able to marvel at dense forested landscapes and impressive
limestone cliffs as you travel by nostalgic steam train.
Weaving its way alongside the Rhône river in south-eastern
France, the Train des Gorges near the Ardèche mountains reveals the
tapestry of marvellous woodland scenery for which this part of the
country is known. Journey through the Doux Valley, this railway is
made up from various beautiful bridges which are cast over babbling
brooks and the titular stone gorges. A charming steam locomotive
hauls a line of blue carriages on an enchanting journey alongside
mountains and rivers.
