Winter & Spring

Discover holiday magic on a winter or spring escape, and experience the world during some 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's 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 take you to the heart of some beautiful destinations as well as offering the chance to indulge in some unique cultural celebrations, like immersing yourself in world of colourful flora at Keukenhof Gardens.

The Outer Hebrides & The Highlands

Mrs Chapman
4 stars
“I enjoyed this trip but did feel it was top heavy with the group constantly moving and it was rushed at times. People mostly elderly got tired.Whoever planned it is ambitious.We would have benefitted from a rest day or a few hours out.I appreciate one can drop out of trips but that is not the point.Anyway we had to get to the next destination.There was not much train travel. We had a coach a lot of the time. It was the nature of the journey one could not take a train. I think a musical event would have been diverting one eve. Our group was fortunate because we had amazingly good weather.Great visability. Lewis is beautiful and we were able to enjoy it and the beaches. However unless you are interested in history and the wonderful scenery there is little else there.If one gets bad weather and it is likely there is no reason to go.Unless you are climbing or engaging in sporting activity. Our tour guide was attentive and I consider the trip value for money.

“This would have been 5 stars but for the following. 1.Disappointment being changed from Strasbourg to Mulhouse. Mulhouse was attractive and the hotel very good but the journey was too long,we arrived too late to see anything and had to leave next morning just as the market was opening. 2. The group was 34 in number(much too big),our guide was very good but many struggled to keep up. 3. Tiefencastel, The hotel was clean,very warm and comfortable,but a bit stingy on the bathroom products(one small sachet of body wash each) and packed lunches (considering one day was Christmas Day).And all inclusive is perhaps a description that stretches a point! It”s only at tiefencastel and that is limited to while you are eating. 4. Communication is sometimes muddled by receiving some messages from Great Rail, a sister company 5,We paid for our luggage to be transported to Tiefencastel,but a week before departure were notified that the company (Sherpr) knew nothing about it .RD has reimbursed our money.Luggage on trains can be problematic. 6.Otherwise,brilliant holiday. Christmas day,snow,good company,treasured memories……..
