Rail Adventures

Rail Adventures

HF Holidays has been leading the way for walking holidays since 1913. But did you know we’ve been organising rail holidays almost as long? In 1914 we took our very first group of rail adventurers from London to Germany, making us one of the world's oldest rail holiday operators.  

When you embark on one of our rail holidays, you can rely on 110 years of experience designing incredible itineraries that make the journey as much a part of the adventure as the destination.  

Departing from London St Pancras, we’ll hop across the English Channel by Eurostar and then onward to some of Europe’s best-kept secrets and big-name destinations via high-speed regional rail services and heritage-rich railway rides.  

A relaxing start to your holiday 

We believe holidays should be as care-free as possible. That’s why our rail holidays are fully escorted from start to finish. From the moment you arrive at the station to the end of your trip, you’ll have an HF Holidays Tour Manager to handle all arrangements.  

Get to know your group 

Our rail trips allow you maximum time to meet your group and make new friends as you travel. So before reaching your destination, you’ll have already gotten to know your HF Holidays Tour Manager and established friendships with your fellow travellers.   

Travel in comfort 

Travelling by train allows you to enjoy comfortable, reserved seating with plenty of leg room. What’s more, the ability to move around freely as you travel means you’ll reach your destination feeling relaxed and ready for the adventures ahead.
