Travel by Train | Small Group Tours | Adventure Holidays from Ireland



While airline travel may be convenient, the cramped seats in economy class and the annoyance of going through security checkpoints for hours makes it a less than ideal transportation method for people who enjoy the journey as well as the destination. Alternative options are cruise ships or renting a car and driving yourself, but perhaps the most comfortable and unique is an adventure holiday by train.


Imagine gliding through the fairy-tale scenes outside your window as you relax in first-class comfort on a train in Switzerland. Or perhaps a sleeper compartment on The Ghan, Australia's world-renowned, long-distance train, will help you better enjoy sweeping views of the outback on your adventure holiday. South Africa's Blue Train brings you five-star meal service, but smaller and less fancy options can deliver amazing experiences as well. For example, the country rail that winds through the West Highlands of Scotland lets you experience the quaint stations and charming vistas at every mile.

The scenic route is everywhere.

In an airplane, all you can see are the white fluffy clouds and the land speeding by far below. Throughout time, people have enjoyed the railroads to connect small hamlets in large cities and everything in between. Experience it all while enjoying a close-up view of the scenery on every side on an adventure holiday by train.


Iconic railways

Experience railroad journeys of yesteryear on the modern versions of the vast Trans-Siberian railway, India's Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, and Switzerland's Glacier Express.


An environmentally-friendly travel option.

For environmentally conscious travellers, adventure holidays by train offer a friendlier and less polluting way to see the world.


More access for a richer experience.

Railroads go where planes can't and sometimes even where it is difficult to drive a car. Infiltrate the heart of the countries you visit and access remote locations you once dreamed about seeing on an adventure holiday by train.


See the world from your window seat.

The adventure holidays by train that we offer take travellers through the most iconic places on earth that include the most impressive landscapes and scenery, such as the Alps, the Himalaya Mountains and the vast expanse of Siberia. From the train window, you can see every detail and never miss a thing.


Comfort instead of cramped on the go.

Unlike airplanes where people are crammed in like sardines and someone always seems to be leaning on your knees, an adventure holiday by train can be a more comfortable way of travelling. Even the basic seats have sufficient legroom, and sleeper cars allow you to journey in luxurious comfort. All of this comes at a more affordable price as well.


Faster from station to destination than airline travel.

Trains run from city and town centers to destinations beyond the norm. These convenient stations mean you can get from the train to your hotel or to the interesting sites at different destinations more quickly and with less stress. Imagine not wasting half a day in the airport and the back of a taxi, before you can finally check into your hotel and can put your luggage down.


A civilized way to have an adventure.

Adventure holidays by train combine the hottest landmarks and tourist spots with easy access and the opportunity to explore on your terms. On a adventure holiday by train, you will come in contact more with the locals to get a true insider's view of their local culture and life.
