Scenic Tours

Witness some of the most magnificent scenery of the world on a rail tour that explores Europe's natural beauty. From the wild moorlands to idyllic lakeside settings, the diversity of the continent provides a striking backdrop to our scenic train tours. Every holiday that features in this specialist group of tours has been chosen because it visits locations that are abundant in dramatic panoramas.

Many of our scenic tours include journeys on steam trains or narrow-gauge railways, which explore regions that are often inaccessible to other forms of transport. These routes wind around mountains, loop over valleys and take you incredibly close to stunning flora, providing an unforgettable feast for the eyes. Choose from our wide range of destinations which includes short breaks and longer, more comprehensive holidays that explore the heart of Europe.

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
4/Jul
Douglas Buchanan
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
