Lakes & Mountains

Picturesque locations, incredible natural beauty and awe-inspiring landscapes await on our lakes and mountains holidays. As glistening lakes sparkle in the sunlight and majestic mountain peaks appear to touch the sky, the mountains and lakes of Europe provide a breath-taking backdrop to any holiday. There's no end to the incredible natural beauty on offer, with famous sights, such as the magnificent Alps and pretty Lake Garda, just waiting to be explored.

Enjoy a different view over beautiful surroundings as you glide between mountains and beside lakes. So many unexpected delights are uncovered on rail holidays as you marvel at the panoramic views from your carriage window. Breathe in the crisp air of a winter wonderland or relax in the warm sun reflecting off attractive lakes; whichever time of year you want to get back to nature, we've got the holiday to suit.

Expert opinions & guides

Bernina Express

What to see

Climbing the Alps in extravagant loops while exclaiming at the scenery seen through huge panoramic windows on the Bernina Express from Italy up to St Moritz.

John Cockerill, Tour Manager

Gornergrat Mountain Railway

What to do

The Gornergrat railway in Zermatt, Switzerland. A 30-minute train ride aboard a 19th-century electric cog railway delivers you to a spectacular viewing area overlooking the Matterhorn and Gorner Glacier, at the foot of the Monte Rosa massif. Viewed on a day of clear blue sky, this is an amazing experience, especially when an ibex turns up unexpectedly to pose for a photo!

Patricia Niroumand, Tour Manager

Grindelwald

What to discover

Grindelwald, Switzerland - most travellers based here think of the nearby train to the top of the Jungfrau (and rightly so), but don't forget the cable car directly from the town to the summit of the First - a fantastic ride, particularly so after a fresh snowfall. Go towards the end of the day to avoid the crowds of skiers and have the cabin to yourself!

Brian Packer, Tour Manager

“It was a very good holiday with we both enjoyed very much. Your Tour Manager, Jon Williams, was excellent: extremely informative, helpful and knowledgeable. St. Fagan's Castle and Folk Museum was an excellent substitute for Caerphilly Castle with much more to offer. The two train journeys were excellent especially the Gwilly. St. David's would have been good to see again but, on relection, we think it would have been too far. The substitute of Laugharne was an excellent choice and should, we think, be a permanent item in the schedule but with longer time allowed. Thanks for "delivering the goods" - once again!
