• European rail journeys provide more than transportation

    2013-01-14

    Tourists about to embark on Europe travel may find that the best way to traverse the continent is by train. Not only can travelers avoid frequent flight delays and long security lines at airports, they can use their rail journey as a way to see more of the beautiful European landscape. With punctual service and comfortable amenities, trains offer a unique way to tour the countryside while also providing special opportunities for savvy travelers.

    One such one-of-a-kind rail trip cuts through Switzerland, taking tourists from Montreux by Lake Geneva to a medieval town by the name of Gruyeres. The journey itself lasts about 10 hours round trip, but travelers have the chance to tour local cheese and chocolate factories along the way, loading up on samples before riding back through the Swiss Alps.

    Those taking part in family travel in the Scandinavian region of Europe have many choices when it comes to breathtaking rail trips that are perfect for visitors of any age. Norway is home to several lines of varying lengths, including a route from Dombas to Andalsnes, which takes under two hours, or a journey on the Bergen line, which stretches for about nine hours and is the world's steepest railway. Each of these treks will wow travelers with amazing views of mountain landscapes, fjords and clear blue rivers.
