Rail Discoveries has released its latest winter and spring 2017/18 brochure which features four new tours.

They include a winter trip to the Harz Mountains, a cruise to Paris, a trip to Saxony’s Ore Mountains and a Christmas Markets tour featuring Bath and Bristol.

The brochure also showcases a selection of all-inclusive and fly/rail tours. As an example, a new six-day fly/rail Steam and Snow in Saxony’s Ore Mountains tour, described by the company as “an enchanting tour experiencing the hidden charms of the Ore Mountains, complete with two journeys on heritage railways”, costs from £1,095 per person.

It includes flights to Prague, five nights' hotel accommodation with dinner, a journey on the Fichtelbergbahn to Oberwiesenthal – the highest town in Germany, and an excursion to Dresden, the capital of Saxony. It departs in January and February 2018.

The company is also introducing its four-day Paris in Winter Cruise from £545. Customers can “enjoy the crisp beauty and wintry elegance of Paris as they drift up the Seine on a seasonal cruise, featuring on board nights of cabaret and dancing”. The itinerary includes a city tour of Paris, a guided tour of Montmartre, a three-night cruise on MS Botticelli and a gala dinner, complete with Paris by night cruise, and departs in November and December.
