Christmas Rail Tours

Escorted train holidays over the Christmas holidays

Celebrate the festive season with one of Rail Discoveries' incredible Christmas rail tours. These holidays visit beautiful places that are especially delightful during the Christmas period. From twinkling lights and stalls selling traditional gifts to mulled wine and trips amongst winding, snow-covered mountains, our Christmas rail tours are as diverse as they are exciting. Picture postcard locations such as the Austrian Tyrol and Lake Garda provide the backdrop to these holidays, which you are able to explore independently and on planned excursions. Many of the excursions allow you to experience little bits of the celebrations in the country you are staying, such as tasting celebratory drinks and visiting Christmas markets. This time of year is perfect for discovering a new destination as the festivities bring an essence of excitement to the atmosphere and make every Christmas holiday memorable. The cosy and friendly atmosphere combined with delicious and delicate treats make our Christmas rail tours a real delight.

Christmas Holidays in Europe

As with all of our holidays, from short breaks to long comprehensive tours, an experienced Tour Manager joins guests at St Pancras International for the beginning of our Christmas rail tours. Our Tour Managers accompany each of our holidays to ensure everything runs smoothly and according to plan, solving any issues that could arise before you are even aware of them. Their knowledge about the places you are visiting is invaluable as they may have been there many times before. Offering you as much or as little guidance as you would like whilst away, our friendly Tour Managers help to make every one of our Christmas rail tours a memorable experience.

From visiting majestic châteaux amongst breath-taking mountains to journeys along picturesque narrow-gauge railways, each of our Christmas holidays feature a number of included excursions. As well as this range of excursions, our Christmas rail tours also include all accommodation, travel and a selection of meals in the price. Whilst you sit aboard your comfortable train carriage relaxed and ready for the next destination it is clear to see why rail travel is so enjoyable, as the ever-changing landscape glides past your window. Enjoy the striking panoramas and exciting festive spirit on our Christmas rail tours.
