Winter and Festive Season By Rail

Winter and Festive Season

Winter and Festive Season with Rail Discoveries

Winter is a time when your favourite cities, landscapes and countries are transformed. With the colder temperatures come heartier foods, Christmas decorations, strong local traditions and, at times, a blanket of crisp white snow. Whether you wish to travel to towns decked with festive lights and explore bustling markets or escape to serene landscapes and take in the charms of the countryside, we have a tour for you.

Experience the glittering markets of Bavaria, step aboard the Glacier Express at Christmas or New Year or travel across the Arctic Circle. Our extensive range of Winter & Festive holidays provide ample opportunity to sample the delights of the season.
