Explore Europe on a Rail Holiday

Each of our rail holidays in Europe have been carefully selected for their high levels of beauty and cultural attractions. All of our holidays to Europe include all accommodation, transport and a range of meals and excursions in the price of the tour; excursions can include city tours, concerts and trips to iconic landmarks.

The continent of Europe transforms throughout the seasons bringing new beauty and delights such as fields filled with pretty spring flowers and snow-covered hills. Our travel on heritage railways and other modes of transport such as ships means we take our guests to some of the most unspoilt scenery that is often inaccessible to other travel methods.

Whether you are looking for a short break by train or a steam train holiday in the UK, we have a holiday to suit any taste. Imagine traveling on the Glacier Express with dramatic backdrops through the Swiss Alps or visiting the idyllic Dordogne in France - it's all possible on a train holiday from Rail Discoveries. Find out more about each of our train holidays in Europe and their destinations by selecting a location on the map and reading our individual holiday descriptions.
