Christmas Rail Escorted Tours

Escape from the stresses of the festive season on one of our spectacular Christmas Tours

Powdery snow that crunches underfoot, candles at Midnight Mass and the jingle of bells as your horse-drawn sleigh slides through the forest combine with festive meals and traditional celebrations on our Christmas rail tours. Somehow the true spirit of Christmas is easier to find in the right setting. Whether we are gathering to turn on the Christmas tree lights in a quaint medieval village or speeding across snow-covered plains on festively decorated trains, this will be a Christmas to remember on one of our festive Christmas tours.

All of our Christmas rail tours are escorted by a Tour Manager who meets you in London and stays on hand throughout the tour, ready to deal with any small problems that may arise. Our Tour Managers also have a good knowledge of the destinations that our guests visit, which means that if you are unsure how to spend your free days they will be able to advise you on the best sights and excursions in the region.

Escape the stresses of the festive period back home and treat yourself to one of our outstanding Christmas tours by train. With a vast range of incredible places to visit, Great Rail Journeys really do provide something to suit everyone, offering our travellers a unique and memorable experience. Due to their immense popularity, early booking will ensure you obtain your ideal Christmas break.

As an alternative to a Christmas tour by train, why not also have a look at our wonderful selection of Christmas markets breaks? You can choose from a wide selection of festive breaks in Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg as well as in the UK.
