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

Lakes and Dales by Steam
5/Jul
Cherry Gregory
5 stars
“My husband and I enjoyed this holiday (made even better because of perfect weather) and the group was very friendly. The hotel was in the attractive village of Wetheral, an ideal location for all our excursions. The Crown Hotel had friendly and helpful staff and the food was good, with a wide choice. We also had a nice, comfortable room. The only criticism we have is that (without warning or explanation) no one in the group had their rooms tidied and the coffee/tea was not replenished throughout our stay. It didn't make a great deal of difference to us but I thought it a little strange and have never stayed at a hotel before when this was not done. Also, it took until the third day for us to realise we could ask for more tea bags and coffee sachets etc at reception, No one had informed us of this. Besides this strange omission, the hotel was excellent. The tour manager, Nick, was friendly and organised and because many people on the tour had problems with getting home caused by the rail strike, he put a lot of effort into ensuring group members were helped as much as possible. We enjoyed the tours, loved the train journeys and were captivated by Muncaster Castle. It was a shame we didn't have more time at Muncaster Castle (the 1 hour 45 minutes that we did have was not nearly enough and with the array of beautiful and interesting things to see, it was frustrating not to be able to enjoy the vast majority of them). However, it was good to be introduced to the Castle and we shall try to visit it for a whole day sometime in the future.

Catalonia & Little Trains of the Pyrenees

5 stars
“The itinerary was varied and well researched, and the hotel was superb. The days were filled with interesting locations to explore and the three Pyrenees Little Trains met my expectations. At one or two locations it would have been nice to spend an extra hour or two look around. The Company must be congratulated on how they handled the UK rail strike on our way home. Instead of coming home on the Saturday we spent the night and the next day in Lille. Actually a bonus day. Yes, I do recommend this holiday and the company.

“We think the hotel was excellent, service was prompt and are planning to visit early next year. The tour manager, Barry, was very much aware of the places we visited and kept us informed by giving us small chunks of information so we were not over loaded with facts. Unfortunately I had to return home early as I ended up with a hernia. God bless the NHS - I was in the doctors' surgery within 2 hours of arriving home, have had a scan and have a further visit to the Doctors to discuss the results. Just hoping for a good result so we can plan a future trip. Barry and his team were very helpful. Will be 82 next January but fingers crossed. Best wishes to Barry and the team from David & Sue
