It’s often been said that travel is as much about the journey as the destination, a saying that’s especially apt when it comes to our collection of great train journeys of the world. Landscapes unfolding before you like a live-action guide book. Sunrises over mountains and sunsets over the sea, all in a day. The thrill of waking up somewhere completely new and the romance of travelling as people did centuries ago, in the ‘golden era’ of rail.
There are tried-and-tested classic train journeys, like South Africa’s majestic Rovos Rail and Canada’s glamorous Rocky Mountaineer; scenic rides through the Swiss mountains on traditional cogwheel and rack railways; and slick, high-speed journeys across Japan and China. You could even follow a route through the stunning Peruvian countryside on the Titicaca Train. All you have to do is choose which one of our guided train tours to do next and then it’s all aboard!
