Let the train take the strain and travel across continents in style and comfort. Sit back in a luxurious carriage and watch the scenery unfold as you cut a swathe through scenery that otherwise may be inaccessible. Whether train travel sits at the centre of your holiday plans or you’d just like to incorporate a great rail ride into a longer trip, talk to our team of specialists.
Our top train journeys include the elegant Blue Train and riding with Rovos Rail in South Africa, the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada and the white-knuckle switchbacks of the Devil’s Nose in Ecuador. Take the chance to cross Australia from Sydney to Perth on the Indian Pacific and from Adelaide to Darwin on the Ghan. Rumble across the altiplano from Puno to Cusco on the Andean Explorer or ascend into the Andes on the Hiram Bingham Express, destination Machu Picchu.
Luxury rail journeys, such as the chance to coast through the lush landscapes of the southern islands of Japan on the Kyushu Seven Stars, relive the days of the Raj on board the Palace on Wheels or recapture the style and elegance of the Twenties and Thirties as you travel through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore on the Eastern & Oriental Express, let you combine luxury travel and living history, nowhere better epitomised by Europe’s legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
