For a dose of nostalgia, romance and elegance, as well as a sustainable travel option, a luxury rail journey is just the ticket.

Train travel has always attracted a passionate cohort of rail enthusiasts, lured by the convenience, comfort and charisma of the timeless mode. Today, the appeal is growing as more and more travellers are looking to adopt a slower pace, enjoy a deeper connection and make more sustainable choices. Embrace the old-world charm of train travel with these top luxury journeys.

Train Suite Shiki-Shima, Japan

Japan is globally renowned for its rail network or, perhaps more accurately, the efficiency of its rail network. The Train Suite Shiki-Shima combines that famous efficiency with the ultimate on-rail luxury across a range of incredible journeys.

Operated by East Japan Railway Company, the 10-car sleeper is exquisitely designed with thoughtful nods to Japanese tradition and culture. Soak up rolling views of the glorious Japanese countryside from the five-star lounge, observatory and fine-dining cars, or retreat to your deluxe two-storey suite, where traditional tatami mats and a specially made cypress bath await.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, Europe

Belmond is a leader in travel experiences and the company’s train journeys are world-class. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is one of the brand’s most renowned trains, recognised for its Art Deco grandeur and unmatched service.

The successor to the famous Orient Express, which ran from 1883 to 2009, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express travels to some of Europe’s most revered cities, although the classic route is Paris to Venice.

Extravagant cuisine is served around the clock, live entertainment plays into the night, suites are thoughtfully restored to 1920s splendour, and wonderful scenery unfolds with each passing kilometre.

The Blue Train, Africa

Dubbed a “window to the soul of Africa”, The Blue Train certainly lives up to the auspicious tagline. Over two spectacular nights, the 1600km round trip from Pretoria to Cape Town winds through vast farmlands, rugged mountains and Cape Winelands, as well as famous gold and diamond landscapes.

An alternative route heads west to Limpopo Province, home to Kruger National Park, one of the world’s premium game parks. Each suite offers exquisite luxury, including an Italian marble ensuite and personalised 24-hour butler service.

The Ghan, Australia

Dorothea Mackellar wrote so vividly of Australia’s sweeping plains, and they can be suitably admired from The Ghan. This iconic journey, operated by Great Southern Rail, takes passengers through the heart of Australia, from Darwin to Adelaide or vice versa, where the landscapes are truly captivating.

As well as stylish and spacious suites, Platinum Service guests enjoy premium extras such as a full-size ensuite, expansive views from both sides of the train, and exclusive use of the Platinum Club carriage. Fine dining and attention to detail come as standard, while the off-train experiences embrace the Aussie outback.

Palace on Wheels, India

India’s first luxury train, the Palace on Wheels, embodies the decadence and romance of a bygone era to deliver an enchanting experience.

The journey, which starts and ends in New Delhi, winds its way through Rajasthan for seven nights, taking in key cities and iconic landmarks, including the Taj Mahal. Two lavish restaurants, a spa and a lounge complement the deluxe and super deluxe cabins, which are each serviced by an exclusive butler.

Belmond Andean Explorer, South America

The Belmond Andean Explorer sets the benchmark as high as the Peruvian altitude. From Cusco to Arequipa, the world’s highest rail route captures the essence of the Andean region and includes excursions to tranquil Lake Titicaca and the incredible floating Uros islands. Each of the one- or two-night journeys brim with colour and character, while the locomotive’s design embraces a contemporary take on luxury. Enjoy authentic Peruvian flavours in one of two elegant dining carriages and unwind with a Pisco Sour in the lounge or in the dreamy Spa Car.
