Christmas

Powdery snow that crunches underfoot, flickering candles at Midnight Mass and the merry jingle of bells as your horse-drawn sleigh slides through the forest combine with festive meals and traditional celebrations on our wonderful Christmas rail tours. We believe that somehow, the true spirit of Christmas is easier to find when you are celebrating in the perfect setting. Whether we are gathering to turn on the Christmas tree lights in a quaint medieval village, or speeding across snow-covered plains on cheery, festively decorated trains, we can guarantee a Christmas to remember on one of our enticing Christmas rail tours.

Winter is a wonderful time of year. You've got Christmas, you've got pristine winter scenery, you've heartwarming seasonal cuisine and after it's all done, you've got the cheerful colours and fresh feeling of spring to look forward to!

4 stars
“This would have been 5 stars but for the following. 1.Disappointment being changed from Strasbourg to Mulhouse. Mulhouse was attractive and the hotel very good but the journey was too long,we arrived too late to see anything and had to leave next morning just as the market was opening. 2. The group was 34 in number(much too big),our guide was very good but many struggled to keep up. 3. Tiefencastel, The hotel was clean,very warm and comfortable,but a bit stingy on the bathroom products(one small sachet of body wash each) and packed lunches (considering one day was Christmas Day).And all inclusive is perhaps a description that stretches a point! It”s only at tiefencastel and that is limited to while you are eating. 4. Communication is sometimes muddled by receiving some messages from Great Rail, a sister company 5,We paid for our luggage to be transported to Tiefencastel,but a week before departure were notified that the company (Sherpr) knew nothing about it .RD has reimbursed our money.Luggage on trains can be problematic. 6.Otherwise,brilliant holiday. Christmas day,snow,good company,treasured memories……..

Explore a Winter Wonderland on an Escorted Tour

Enjoy an unforgettable Christmas escape crossing the Canadian Shield on board The Canadian, a true classic Trans-Continental train. With original stainless steel coaches fully restored to their 1950's splendour and wonderful on-board facilities, The Canadian is the ideal way to take in the dramatic Canadian vistas, blanketed in a beautiful layer of wintry snow.  Or, immerse yourself in the picturesque landscapes of Europe over the festive period, with tours taking in the ethereal beauty and festive charms of the continent. Experience the allure of the mighty Danube river at Christmas from on board an intimate cruise ship, explore Swedish Lapland in all its winter finery, or discover the festive delights of Salzburg and Vienna at Christmas.

Cochem

If you'd prefer to enjoy the festive period a closer to home, we also have a number of Christmas tours in the Great British Isles. Visit Yorkshire at Christmas, immersing yourself in the Christmas cheer of Harrogate, York and beyond. Or delight in the celebrations in Scotland, where Christmas Day is celebrated with a sumptuous Christmas lunch, traditional dancing and Scottish music.

All of our Christmas rail tours are escorted by a Tour Manager who meets you in London and stays on hand throughout the holiday, ready to deal with any small problems that may arise. Our Tour Managers also have a fantastic knowledge of the destinations that our guests visit, which means that they can advise you on the best sights to see and places to go, so that you can make the most out of any free time.
