Austria, Switzerland and The Alps

Austria, Switzerland and The Alps by Rail

The Alps are a huge and striking range of mountains and peaks that extend across several European countries, providing stunning views from snow-peaked mountains to lush green valleys and majestic lakes. Escorted train holidays through the Alps travel to many locations of beauty, with popular and particularly scenic ranges being found in Switzerland, Austria, Spain and on the borders of France and Italy. Some of the most well known sights, and most incredible railways and train journeys, can be experienced when visiting the Alps, such as the Jungfrau Railway and the very famous Glacier Express.

Enjoy Austria, Switzerland and The Alps with Rail Discoveries

As with all Rail Discoveries' holidays, the services of one of our experienced Tour Managers are included to ensure that every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly and to provide any advice or assistance that you may require.

Choose from one of our spectacular Alps train holidays and experience a unique journey across the breathtaking landscapes of this epic natural phenomenon.

Holidays by train to Switzerland are extremely scenic and there's a lovely range of scenery to appreciate as the train passes through charming villages nestled in deep valleys and forests, before ascending into flowering alpine meadows, eventually turning into rugged mountains surrounded by snow-covered embankments and icy glaciers.

For spectacular views of the Alps, train holidays are the ideal way to find the most remote and scenic landscapes in the area whilst also providing access to the charming traditional towns and popular resorts. There are a selection of trains that are used on our tours, from high-speed services like the Eurostar to traditional locomotives and trains like the famous Glacier Express, which follows one of the most visually stunning routes in the Swiss Alps.

Train holidays are also a fantastic way to preserve these natural wonders, as it is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel. From the moment that you join your tour group and Tour Manager at St Pancras International, every aspect of your trip has been arranged for your convenience and relaxation. Comfortable hotels, travel, selected meals and exciting excursions are all included in our Alps train holidays, further details of which can be viewed in the tour itinerary.

Interlaken in Winter

The excursions planned into your holiday are there to provide you with a range of cultural, social or historical experiences and can include guided walks, lake cruises and city tours.

It is your decision whether you choose to join in with the excursions that are included on our Alps train holidays and you are welcome to spend your time relaxing in your hotel or individually exploring the local area if you would prefer to do so.
