Scenic historical train

Before flight became commonplace to tourists, train was the most used means of transportation for traveling or going on holiday. Nowadays, it is still possible to retrace historical railway routes on legendary trains while on tour.

You might take a seat on the world-famous Venice Simplon Orient Express, connecting Paris to Istanbul, or on the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, running from Moscow to Vladivostok. For luxury lovers, the splendid Maharajas' Express in India and the cozy Royal Scotsman, which hosts only 36 passengers and rattles through Scotland’s most fascinating landscapes, are two noteworthy options to take into consideration.

Lovers of train trips in the mountains shouldn’t miss Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer, the Swiss Glacier Express – the world’s slowest express train or Norway’s Bergen Railway, which takes you from Oslo to Bergen crossing more than 300 bridges. Discover all of our travel and trip ideas on the train!
