4 minute read | Nov 10, 2023

All aboard for an adventure that will take you through picturesque landscapes and charming towns in absolute comfort and style. One of the oldest forms of travel, a train ride offers the ability to wind through breathtaking mountains, cut through meadows and valleys dotted with wildflowers and foliage in a multitude of different colors, travel over bridges overlooking cascading waterfalls and raging rivers, and traverse cities and villages with architecture that complements the surrounding natural beauty. 

Sometimes the most memorable trips are marked not just by the destination but by the journey to get there. For your next vacation, discover the path less traveled by booking a scenic train ride and enjoy the slower pace that a luxurious rail journey has to offer.

Here is an overview of Avoya's top train vacation recommendations and some of the epic adventures each has in store for you.
