Great railway journeys in India

Introduction

Travel into the farthest reaches, or connect major cities on a great railway journey in India. Home to ancient toy trains, high speed trains and a hospital on wheels, the railways of India are exciting, diverse ways to discover the country and an iconic way to travel this vast country.

Discover India’s varied landscapes by train

The landscape of India varies widely throughout its many regions, from the hills of Darjeeling to the steep mountain passes of the Himalayas and the lush tropical atmosphere of the southern states. The best way to see India, many agree, is to climb aboard one of the many rail lines that crisscross this vast country, so you can watch as the landscape, wildlife and villages shift and change along the journey. With the comfort of your own travelling accommodation, you are free to sit back, relax, and really get to know India’s many personalities.

Relax in luxury rail carriages

Enjoy luxurious hospitality aboard storied rail lines that harken back to travel’s golden age. The accommodations onboard some of India’s best trains include coaches fit, quite truly, for a king. Silk bedding, rich upholstery, glossy writing tables and more off-set the scenery passing by your large picture window, so you can soak up the splendour of the landscape while enjoying superior service from an attentive staff. Some of our rail holidays in India even include butler service.

Meal service aboard our top rail coaches is on par with the world’s finest, with chefs that showcase local ingredients and global influences, to ensure that your journey continues through your taste buds as well as your eyes. And dining facilities are top-notch, to evoke the glamour and romance of train travel that has caused so many to fall in love with it.
