RAILWAY JOURNEYS

A change is good once in a while, if even just once you should absolutely try new things and enjoying epic experiences!

By travelling on a train at varying speeds, you can stare in awe at the majestic landscape as you pass through different destinations. This is your opportunity to sit, stare and admire the magnetic layout of people and places or be entranced by the sound of a great engine and its mechanism as you make your way along the tracks.

Every continent has its own special rail journey; like a river train ride that goes through the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Some railways win fame by puttering their way through delightful landscapes. The original Trans-Siberian route takes passengers from Moscow to the seaport of Vladivostok, but one of the most colourful alternatives is the Trans-Mongolian route – a trip connecting three capital cities and a world of changing landscapes. And oh the majestic emerald green of the Eastern & Oriental Express offering the glamour of the tropics and then there is the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada that flourishes with magnificent scenery.

The Blue Train of South Africa is a national railway luxury train frequently replaced or upgraded to become more luxurious as it is one of the oldest, derived from trains introduced in 1923 and it continues to oscillate between Cape Town and Pretoria. Journey Latin America has a new 10-day “Peru by Rail” holiday, the new Belmond train and Belmond hotels are central and it takes in Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, the “white city” of Arequipa and the Colca Canyon where you can see condors soaring not only above your head but below your feet.
