Rail holidays around the world

Experience the golden age of travel

From laid back cross-country voyages to high-speed holiday transport, you’d be surprised where rail can take you.

With fine dining, best-in-class service and room to relax in style as the landscape rolls by, a rail journey transports you back to a time when holidays were as much about the journey as the destination.

We have a choice of journeys to help you explore the world at a slower pace. Discover Africa from the sumptuous comfort of a lovingly restored vintage train carriage, enjoy five-star cuisine as you take an epic voyage through the Canadian Rocky Mountains, or see the Alps from Switzerland’s most scenic railway.

Travelling by rail is also a fast, convenient and environmentally conscious way of combining a few destinations in one trip. Lots of our tours combine train journeys with stays in hotels or sundowner cruises, so you can go further and get more from your rail holiday.

Step aboard the famous Rocky Mountaineer and travel through the spectacular wild beauty of the Rockies. With routes carving through western Canada and the US states of Colorado and Utah, a journey on this luxurious train promises glorious scenery and superb service.

Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa harks back to a bygone era with its lovingly restored vintage carriages, sumptuous Edwardian-style dining car, and Pullman and Deluxe suites. A three-night rail tour takes you from Cape Town to Pretoria, passing winelands and rugged mountain ranges, and stopping off at Matjiesfontein and Kimberley.

Rail travel is a way of life in India, and a train journey is a fantastic way to experience a little of the country’s culture. Our Indian rail tour features no fewer than six train trips, ranging from air-conditioned express services to the narrow-gauge toy train that chugs into the cool Himalayan foothills.

With the widest choice of holidays and travel experiences than ever before, you can now personalise your trip so you are in complete control. All this is backed up by the high-standards and service you’d expect from Saga.
