Bucket List Experiences For Your Next Rail Holiday
1 December 2022
Belmond Royal Scotsman
One of Scotland’s premier tourist attractions, a ride aboard this train is nothing short of a luxurious experience. Once on board, you will enjoy the elegant surroundings of mahogany-clad cars, fine dining where exceptional Scottish produce is the star of the show and beautiful personal cabins to rest your eyes in after all that sightseeing.
The Glacier Express
Known as the world’s slowest express due to its average speed of just 24 miles per hour, this train with its large panoramic windows connects the mountain resorts of Zermatt and St. Moritz via Andermatt in the central Swiss Alps, offering unrivalled views of the surrounding scenery. On a journey aboard the Glacier Express, anticipate incredible landscapes that range from mountains and lakes to forests and valleys – not forgetting a crossing of the much-photographed Landwasser Viaduct with its six arches.
The Maharajas’ Express
Hop aboard the world’s leading luxury tour train in India for an exclusive experience truly unlike any other. At 23 carriages in length, this iconic train boasts tastefully decorated interiors along with two restaurants and two bar/lounges. This train is an absolute must for anyone dreaming of the ultimate rail holiday in India, which may include the Golden Triangle or the vast wildlife reserve at Ranthambore National Park.
The Bernina Express
Similar in style to the Glacier Express, the Bernina Express also boasts large panoramic windows but instead runs between Switzerland and the north of Italy. Interestingly, the entire narrow-gauge route it travels along is UNESCO-listed and highlights include the beautiful Lago di Poschiavo and the nine-arched Brusio Spiral Viaduct.
