Whether it be a short Eurostar journey for the Northern France attractions of steam nostalgia, or the South of France for leisure and sunshine, its miles better and quicker by train.
Our amazing French tour includes SIX steam lines, FOUR inclusive charters and ONE steam gala plus hotel accommodation in picturesque Amiens and the heart of Orléans. Enjoy a great steam gala at the unique and historic WW1 Somme line at Froissy, a day exploring the scenic Baie de Somme line, visit the MTVS new line at Crevecoeur for a private steam charter and private steam charter on the Metre Gauge Le Train du Bas Berry Line.
The Red Train, the Yellow Train and the Blue Train can be found in many itineraries, but only Railtrail takes you through the heart of the Pyrenees, staying in local hotels and getting to know the region both sides of the border. Our grand tour stays in the foothills and valley stations, primed for spectacular excursions. Add in the Tren del Ciment, a stay on the Catalan coast and the ‘Truffle Train’ through the Dordogne for a fortnight’s adventure not found anywhere else.
Railtrail has rejigged the French Riviera tour a little in order to give a little more flexibility with dining options. For this tour we are offering bed and breakfast on all but 2 evenings so that you are free to dine at your leisure. We visit St Tropez by boat and take the scenic coastal train to elegant Monte Carlo. Plus, we also feature steam on the Train des Pignes
