The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is probably the best-known of luxury trains. A series of new rail voyages to Scandinavia takes place in April 2013, firstly from Venice to Stockholm, via an overnight stop in Copenhagen. The return journey travels from Stockholm, via Copenhagen, for Venice. This new route is a first for the train.

Al Andalus, normally based in Andalusia in southern Spain, is running for the first time in central Spain, between Madrid and Zaragoza; there is a full programme of off-train excursions, like the itinerary from Seville.

El Transcantábrico Gran Lujo operates in what is known as Green Spain. España Verde is the northern coast which stretches from Galicia, along the Bay of Biscay to the French border. Gran Lujo is the world’s most luxurious narrow-gauge railway, every suite having a lounge and a private bathroom.

Danube Express is the only international private train in Europe with en-suite compartments, lower beds and air conditioning. There are only 50 passengers per tour, which includes all meals, drinks and off-train excursions. Tours take in the Danube, Budapest, Prague and iconic Istanbul.

Both Rovos Rail and the Blue Train run between Pretoria and Cape Town, both ways. This gives luxury travel enthusiasts the opportunity to sample both of these luxury trains, each with its own character, during one visit to South Africa.

Majestic Train de Luxe, modelled on the Imperial Train of Emperor Franz Josef, operates a small number of special journeys from Vienna during 2013, in partnership with gourmet chef Toni Mörwald, with a finale for New Year’s Eve.

Simon Pielow, Concierge at the Luxury Train Club, says, “The variety and style of luxury trains and associated excursion programmes offer an amazing choice.”
