The coast, villages and countryside of the Eastern Algarve and then explore the treasures of this most westerly corner of Europe.
Seeing a country by rail and on foot is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in flourishing landscapes, get to grips with the culture of each destination and explore magnificent and unique areas abroad or at home. Embarking on one of these breaks promises adventure, as well as memories that will last a lifetime.
We offer many rail holidays; Europe is one of the most sought-after destinations to visit. Travelling by train enables you to see a unique side of each European country you venture to, as well as offering a rather romantic and slower-paced way to travel, with awe-inspiring views from your window. Watch the countryside pass you by as you cross diverse cities and towns, with one of our expert leaders guiding you down enchanting walking trails.

Travellers can also sample exquisite local port wine, which is harvested from the surrounding vineyards.
