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.

“This trip is well worth the money. It is full on but if you want there are free days when you can rest. So much beautiful scenery, clean air, no litter, fabulous train journeys and a great Tour Manager. Switzerland is a great country

“Excellent trip well organised. The Tour Manager was outstanding and extremely helpful in all respects, especially with her help with those members of the party who were not too conversant with modern technology trying to submit covid information before travelling home.

“The tour manager, Caroline was excellent. She met us at the ferry terminal with everything smoothly arranged and continued to be pleasant, helpful and well organised throughout the trip. The hotel was very good, with the most helpful hotel staff I have ever come across. Th food was good, the room was clean, comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Our coach driver/ tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting in giving information about the island. The tour were good with no pressure to rush. We were given ample time at each venue to visit whatever’s we wanted to see. If I sound over enthusiastic about this trip it’s because it was excellent in every aspect, a very pleasing experience.

“This was a great holiday, staying at a super hotel in Roses, just 5mins from a lovely sandy bay. We had a superb buffet breakfast & dinner each day, & swam a few times in their open air swimming pool. The tour manager was very good, giving us information for the next day each evening, and throughout the day. All tickets were included to the 3 little trains, and also to the Dali Museum in Figueres. On the one free day in Roses we took a boat to Cadaques, where Dali had a beach house. This was an amazing town with an old part of white walled houses with red roofs,narrow cobbled lane up to an old church ; well worth a visit. Our group was small only 9, all very friendly, the first one after lock down released. We look forward to booking another holiday with Rail Discoveries.

5 stars
“A wonderfully organised and led trip. The train rides in the Forest of Dean and on the Warwickshire and Gloucestershire Railway were brilliant and the tour of Worcester was so informative with a lovely guide. The hotel staff were all brilliant at the White House. The only slight downer was the cuisine. The vegetables were tasteless. Maybe this was down to the Brexit driven shortages both of staff and fresh produce.

Huskies and the Northern Lights

“Well organised, so that as a single elderly person I had no worries. The Husky Dog sled ride and the Ice Hotel were particular highlights well worth the holiday, plus of course attempts to see the`northern Lights. The hotels were all good too.
