In a world where travel has come to mean congested highways and cramped flights, holidays by rail are a welcome reminder that sometimes there's more to life than rushing from one point to another.
With its gentler pace rail travel offers travellers the luxury of time to rest and reflect before they arrive at their destinations. Rail travel is also one of the best ways to absorb and appreciate some of the world's most magnificent scenery.
Whether you're traversing the vast Canadian hinterland aboard the Rocky Mountaineer or taking in the sights of rural India, a long rail journey will seduce you with its gentle rhythm and old-world charm.
Thomas Cook Tours offers a selection of some of the world's most celebrated rail journeys. Included are several different itineraries on the vast trans-Canadian rail network, and a trip on the luxury Indian Maharaja. You can even book a combined rail and cruise tour to enjoy the best of two of the most elegant modes of travel.
