GREAT RAIL JOURNEYS RIVER CRUISES

  2017 & 2018 RIVER CRUISES  

There are few things in the world more relaxing and satisfying than a river cruise. Watching the beautiful scenery along the banks of the river drift by as you're gently carried from one port to another, with all the time in the world to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. While the pace may be slower, there's never a dull moment.

Great Rail Journeys Sale 2017

It's hard to beat the relaxed, slow and steady feel of a river cruise – but with Great Rail Journeys, you can couple the simple and refined joy of river cruising with the engrossing delights of the world's greatest railways. Get to know your destinations intimately, from the inside out.

As rail cruise experts, Great Rail Journeys have carefully planned their rail cruises to offer the best of both worlds. While no-fly cruises are the main offering, the experience of railway river cruising reaches further afield: fly to India to take a majestic tour of the Ganges and Himalayas.

No-fly cruises include all accommodation and transport, as well as a selection of meals and excursions. All river cruises are aboard elegant 3- to 5-star superior ships that have been specially designed to capture the spectacular scenery that they pass: from the splendour of Scotland's Caledonian Canal to the scenic route down the glorious Danube.
