The World’s 12 Most Amazing Rail Journeys

Author: David Pettitt

It’s easy to take our local train services for granted, yet rail travel has historically been connected with ideas of adventure and destiny. Hurtling along at 100 km/hr with cinematic scenes unfolding whilst safe in your seat, travelling by train can be a truly exciting venture.

The glamour may be lost on the 8:05am to Peckham, but the variety of rail adventures to be had around the world is truly inspiring. From luxurious kangaroo fillet and boutique beer on the two-day Adelaide-Darwin run, to cruising to the Himalayas on India’s gritty Kalka-Shimla ‘toy train’. There’s something to please both the thrill-seeker and the traveller of leisure.

To find the one that’s tailor-made for you, check out our new infographic featuring some of the most spectacular rail travel tours in the world, and release your own wanderlust.
