A selection of longer holidays, completely unique to Railtrail and often limited to one departure and a smaller group size, Grand Tours by Rail Europe aim to share with you many of our favourite experiences on one fabulous Railtrail tour.
The Red Train, the Yellow Train and the Blue Train can be found in many itineraries, but only Railtrail takes you through the heart of the Pyrenees, staying in local hotels and getting to know the region both sides of the border. Our grand tour stays in the foothills and valley stations, primed for spectacular excursions. Add in the Tren del Ciment, a stay on the Catalan coast and the 'Truffle Train' through the Dordogne for a fortnight's adventure not found anywhere else.
By popular demand, here is our grand tour of Norway! Experience the enthralling Flåm Railway and the coast-to-coast Bergen Railway across the roof of Norway. Visit regal Oslo and beautiful maritime Bergen, soaring up the Fløibanen funicular. Cruise the majestic fjords through idyllic nature and visit two great heritage railways.
Following on from our Grand Tours by Rail to Norway and Sweden, here is part three of our Scandinavian thriller! The Great Dane is a unique tour through Denmark, beginning in wonderful Copenhagen before ticking off attractions and railways across the country on a superb circular tour of discovery.
We often ask our customers where they would like to go next and Sweden is a popular response. So here it is, a tour spending a week in Sweden, visiting Stockholm and Linköping, three heritage railways and with two gentle cruises along idyllic waterways on board historic vessels. But that's not all, as our overland adventure uncovers three proud German Hanseatic cities and three more heritage railways.
