Winter & Spring

Winter and spring can be two of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As snowflakes drop on rugged mountain peaks and glistening rivers freeze over into cool ice, many countries in Europe turn into winter wonderlands. Our winter rail journeys take you to some of the most picturesque areas in Europe, from the mountains and glaciers of Switzerland to the rivers and castles of Germany. With pure white snow crunching underfoot and a crisp and still atmosphere, it is hard not to become enchanted during winter.

As winter turns to spring the landscapes of Europe awaken with pretty flowers, lush valleys and a new lease of life. Our spring rail journeys travel to the heart of some beautiful places as well as indulging in cultural celebrations, visiting striking monuments and many more enthralling activities.

Glacier Express All Inclusive in Winter
Mr P Driver
“Our tour manager Graham Carter did a great job in making every day of our holiday run perfectly. He sorted any issues when necessary. He even gave valuable advice for our free days.

Christmas in the Rhine Valley
Mr R Brown
“Good hotel food trips and travel arrangenents
Christmas on the Catalan Coast
Anonymous
“We had a great holiday but felt the hotel could have pushed the boat out a bit more on Christmas Day. A glass of cava and the chef carving a turkey at the lunch buffet was the only difference to the normal buffet. And I didn't really want chips with my turkey! I know we were in Spain, but I did miss my Christmas pudding and some Christmas cake! The 'live' entertaintainment was terrible - a man standing behind a keyboard only using his phone to put the next track on is not 'live music'! But the actual holiday was lovely, a good mix of trips out and free time. And the weather was perfect.
Delightful Rhine & Cologne Christmas Markets
Mr F Rose
“Arrived too late in Remagen (see comment below) also didn't need to leave as early as we did in the last day. Trip was too short. A 5th day is needed. Because of train times the 4 day trip is really only a 2 day trip. We understand some later departures are done to accommodate people coming from further afield. However on a shirt 4 day trip you need to leave as soon as possible. Also we have been on many of your company's trips and anyone we've met from further afield have always come down the day befire anyway. They don't want to dare risk train delays so prefer getting to London the day before.
Floralia Spring Flower Show & Keukenhof Gardens
Mr J Cook
“The trip to Delft was so disappointing. Not enough time to see this town. The walk from the coach park took such a chunk of our visiting time. Although the coach was not allowed ( seemingly only if you held a German international driving plate ). Both my wife and I were very greatly disappointed with the hotel room. No air conditioning. British station on TV not accessible. A bathroom that did not accommodate the size of an adult. Neither of us are grossly overweight but found using the bathroom extremely depressing inconvenient and bordering on claustrophobic. The toppers on our beds kept moving. To get into and out of one of our beds it was necessary to shuffle sideways. Noise not only of local building works but also in the hotel definitely interrupted my wife's sleep. Insufficient storage space. 5 coat hangers and only open shelving - no drawers. For one night ok but not for 4 nights for two people. No safe in our room as we had believed - only one in reception. Julie,our tour guide was excellent.
