If you are looking for an iconic experience on your next holiday, why not considering a great train journey?
In the early part of the 20th century, train travel was considered a very romantic way to travel. The wealthy travelled on the Orient Express with its promise of excitement, comfort, mystique and exotic destinations. Although people lost enthusiasm for train travel in the late ‘80’s, it has now had a resurrection with more and more amazing train journeys available.
South Africa boasts the Rovos Rail and the Blue Train whilst Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer is amazing with every moment being a “Kodak” one. The fast trains in Europe offer many wonderful train journeys – not too long and not too expensive! Another great choice is to travel through the Swiss Alps on one the many splendid journeys.
European tours can take you from London to cities such as Paris, Venice, Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Twice a year there are signature tours from Venice to Stockholm and Paris, Budapest, Bucharest to Istanbul.
The carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express have been lovingly restored to their former glory, recreating one of the finest luxury experiences the world has ever known.
Of course let’s not forget travelling closer to home on The Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin, or the Indian Pacific which takes you from Perth to Sydney and all stops in between.
