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.
