Train Treks Off The Beaten Path
Let the train take the strain with these self-guided walking trips with On Foot Holidays.
You don’t need to be a train enthusiast to enjoy a short railway journey in a stunningly beautiful location. Several of On Foot Holidays’ self-guided walking holidays include a chance to take a ride on one of Europe’s heritage or scenic railways.
The UK is rightly proud of its steam railways – take a shortcut with the South Devon Railway through leafy Devon towards the sea. Or take a local train on the famously beautiful Settle – Carlisle line while passing through on our Yorkshire Dales walk. In the French Alps, the cog railway at Montenvers eases the route down from the Mer de Glace, with stunning views of the glacier and mountains.
Try the vintage tram from Soller to Port Soller, or the historic train that takes the scenic route from Soller to Palma (Mallorca). And you can finish the Amalfi Coast walk with the Circumvesuviana railway back to Naples – a functional line that happens to link the extraordinary sights of Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, and Herculaneum.
On Foot Holidays offers a boutique range of 32 off-the-beaten-track, self-guided walking holidays throughout Europe, in areas rich in cuisine and culture.
