For travellers who prefer a slower, more scenic means of travel, G Adventures has added a selection of new Rail journeys rolling through countries including Bulgaria, Morocco, Spain and Russia, and ranging from a three-day add-on in St. Petersburg to a 23-day journey travelling through seven countries in Europe.

 

These new Rail trips bring G Adventures’ Rail programme to 24 trips that use trains as the primary mode of transport, visiting 21 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, and running between nine and 54 days in length.

 

“In the age of acceleration, slow travel is fast emerging as an antidote to the hectic lives many of us are leading in the digital age,” said G Adventures global product manager, Rachel Wasser.

 

“Train travel enables travellers to relax and recharge, and to enjoy the journey in a more vintage and romantic way; taking time to take in the landscape and see a different side of a destination.”
