Traveling by classic train evokes a sense of nostalgia and adventure. With a National Geographic expert on board, the landscapes that you pass through take on a whole new depth and meaning. From the comfort of a private luxury train, you'll cover vast distances with ease, visit remote towns and villages, and observe everyday life against an ever-changing backdrop. Experience the journey of a lifetime on the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway, or travel aboard a train built in the royal style of the maharajas to explore India's fabled cities. No matter which of our rail trips you choose, one of the greatest pleasures is the journey itself.
Select your travel style--whether it's our signature expeditions, our active outdoors adventures, or our lower-priced journeys. Or choose how you want to travel: by train or small ship, on an expedition geared for photographers or for families, and more.
Our newest small-group trips, provided in partnership with G Adventures, blend fun, hands-on exploration with meaningful cultural encounters, as well as more free time and choices, all for an unbeatable value. See All »
