See the World by Train

Before cars were readily available or flying was an option, trains were considered the most convenient way to travel. And while train travel is not as popular as it once was, especially here in the United States, trains still offer plentiful opportunities to see the world. Here, we have listed some of the best destinations to travel by train!

Travel by Train in the U.S.

You probably know the name Amtrak – and maybe have even taken it out of necessity to get work or your local airport. But did you know that Amtrak Vacations offers a variety of multi-day tours to places across the country that you may never have thought to visit by train! Some of the most popular routes include the 13-day Grand National Parks tour with destinations that include Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, and the Grand Canyon, and the 17-day Grand Rail Experience with Glacier National Park, which stops at six destinations, including Montana’s impressive Glacier National Park.

Japan by Train

If you are looking to explore Japan beyond the capital of Tokyo, a great and efficient way to do so is by traveling via the Shinkansen, Japan’s network of bullet trains. The Shinkansen has nine lines to some of Japan’s most popular tourist destinations, including Nagoya, Kyoto, Hokkaido, Osaka, and many others. Purchase a seven-day Japan Rail Pass for unlimited access to all Japan Rail National trains, plus access to JR bus services, ferry services, and airport transfers.

Explore Europe With Eurail

If you want to take the ultimate Eurotrip, the best, easiest, and most affordable way to travel is via the Eurail train system. The entire system spans 155,000 miles of tracks across 33 countries and more than 40,000 cities and destinations – including Amsterdam, Berlin, Budapest, Prague, Paris, and many more!

Vacation by Train in Canada

Our northern neighbor has so many beautiful cities and nature sites to see, and exploring them by train is one of the best ways to do so. Through Canada Rail, you can book a variety of tours, including the seven-day cross-country Canadian Nostalgic tour from Vancouver to Toronto or the eight-day Rockies Adventurer tour through the Canadian Rockies with stops in Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff National Park.
