BlogWhy choose an escorted rail holiday?

So Many Reasons to Explore the World By Rail.

The wise old adage about the journey being more important than the destination, couldn’t be more appropriate for railway journey holidays. Our belief is that the most relaxing, romantic, and engaging way to see a country is from the window of a train. While epic odysseys such as the Trans-Siberian Express, the Alaska Railway or The Scottish Highlands are trips of a lifetime for many, there are also many adventures to discover throughout Australia.

Below are a few good reasons Rail Holidays are becoming more popular:

Nostalgic Charm – Restored heritage trains are a wonderful travel alternative, taking you through spectacular landscapes, culture and history. With a touch of romance, rail journey holidays will transport you into a bygone era when rail was a common way to travel.

Unique Destinations – Railway Adventures takes iconic trains to destinations that are often untouched by heritage rail tourism. Travel in comfort through majestic scenery, along panoramic coastal routes, or spectacular gorges. Remote destinations can have limited or no access by road or sea, leaving rail the best way to meander through some of the world’s most stunning landscapes.

Immersion – While air travel may be a great way to arrive at your destination faster, there is so much of the sensory experience missed, including stops along the way to really immerse yourself in a local experience. Sit back, relax and watch the scenery, culture and history unfold all around you.

Relaxing Holiday – Rail travel is affordable, comfortable and relaxing with no airport transfers, jet lag or traffic to worry about. You have the choice to mingle with other friendly passengers, sit back and relax, stretch your legs and walk around, eat, drink or sleep – the choice is yours.

Care-free Holidays – Rail journey escorted tours are a perfect balance of inclusions and freedom for singles, friends, and couples. Organised local tours offer unique insider perspectives and offer valuable insights and knowledge.

Quality Inclusions – Railway Adventures tours are like no other, offering unique experiences, exclusive food and wine tours, private dinners, and an endless array of interesting destinations.

Remember, when the whistle sounds and the wheels turn, your Railway adventures begins!
