Orient Express heads to Scandinavia

Article content

24 July 2012 by Luke McCormick

The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is poised to embark on a series of exciting new rail voyages to Scandinavia in April 2013.

A scenic three-night journey will take it from Venice to Stockholm, including an overnight stop in Copenhagen. Its return journey, four days later, will depart Stockholm, via Copenhagen, for Venice. This new route will mark the first occasion in the train's long history that it has visited Stockholm.

Passengers can expect an extraordinary experience - a journey packed with adventure, fine dining and pure romance.

Departing Venice on 08 April 2013, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express will travel through Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany before heading via Copenhagen to Stockholm linking three historically rich and diverse cities by an extraordinary rail experience.

The train will make its return journey, departing Stockholm on the 12 April for Venice, again via an overnight stop in Copenhagen.

The highlight of these new voyages is the Venice to Stockholm journey, through the heart of Europe. The 44-hour rail voyages provide plenty of time to unwind and enjoy the authentic rail experience on the world's most famous train.

Ever since its creation nearly 130 years ago, the Orient-Express has been a symbol of intrigue and luxury and renowned for linking the far corners of Europe.

The vintage 1920's and 1930's Art Deco carriages of the VSOE transport guests to a more elegant age of travel. Romance, adventure and style are all intimately bound up in journeys and tours that criss-cross Europe, rolling through sublime scenery to some of the continent's most alluring cities including Venice, Prague, Budapest, Krakow and Dresden with one special journey to Istanbul once every year.

These routes to Scandinavia open up a new chapter for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and add an exciting new dimension to the schedule, travelling through six countries for the first time.
