Winter & Spring Rail Tours

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. Browse our selection of winter and spring rail journeys.
