Railtrail Tours has issued its 2018 brochure, featuring 12 new products and increasing its limited-edition ‘Grand Tours by Rail’ range.

Adding to a programme already featuring ‘Land’s End to John O’Groats’, ‘Derry to Kerry’ and ‘Norway’s Majestic Fjords & Steam’, the new tours include ‘Six Wonders of the Waterways’, ‘Swedish Steam & Hanseatic Heritage’, ‘Europe by EuroCity’ and a tour of France named ‘Vive la Différence’.

The company's commercial manager, Rob Carroll, said: “Our customers come to us for great value, great service and for something a little bit different. And I don’t think we have disappointed! Europe by EuroCity is our homage to international rail trail with comfort and a whiff of nostalgia. We have deliberately chosen iconic EuroCity routes on a grand tour passing through eight countries, featuring Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Vienna, the Austrian Alps, Switzerland and the Rhine Gorge.

“Alternatively, Vive la Différence explores the scenic lines left behind by the high speed TGV network and is viaducts, vineyards and verdant valleys all the way. It’s a tour of France with a difference and sums up our independent ethos.”

As an example of prices, a ‘Six Wonders of the Waterways’ costs from £1,195 per person, departing on June 9, 2018 for ten days.
