Lakes & Mountains Escorted Tours

Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, nature takes centre stage - and our lakes and mountains holidays showcase scenes that will take your breath away.

Make the journey part of the adventure as you explore the world's iconic mountains by rail. The Alps extend across Europe, providing stunning views of villages nestled in deep valleys and flowering Alpine meadows that turn into rugged mountains. And what better way to discover them than on the world-renowned Glacier or Bernina Express?

The great lakes of the world provide no less scenic wonders, but offer a more sedate experience. Discover waters that dance between shades of emerald and blue, where shores are dotted with elegant villas, ancient towns, and leafy vineyards. From beautiful Garda and Como in Italy, to the often overlooked beauty of Austria's Lake Zell and, further afield, the unparalleled drama found in Canada's national parks. Wherever you go, discover a wealth of extraordinary scenery perfectly suited to explorations by rail.

Come summer or winter, our lakes and mountains rail holidays get you back to nature in comfort, offering up a stunning feast for the eyes as well as authentic local experiences. Wind through snow-dusted mountains by train, sip local wines in family-run country estates, or cruise the sparkling waters of the world's most beautiful lakes; there's no better way to see the world.

mrs hanneke dye
5 stars
“Sirmione is a lovely place to visit. We stayed in the Continental Hotel. A big draw back when you are old is the walking, from where you dropped off and the walk to the hotel cost of taxi 25 euros for 800 metres.

Mr D Thomas
5 stars
“Great Rail Journeys were faultless throughout, however, on the journey from Brussels to Austria the German railway system was abysmal. Both legs of the trip (Brussels to Cologne, and then Cologne to Munich ) were plagued with delays and two major engine failure on the locomotive. When we arrived in Austria everything was brilliant, great hotel, excellent food, friendly staff and a well organised and enjoyable itinerary. The GRJ tour manager Steven was amazing,

Mr D Higgins
5 stars
“This was an absolutely brilliant tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of some early morning starts and late evening finishes! The Tour Manager was just great and a real fund of knowledge at every stage of the tour. She was well informed and was able to keep us very well advised along the way, as well as keeping the whole trip on schedule.
