We are at a crossroads today in the way we travel. As we search for more eco-friendly ways of getting to our destinations, sleeper trains have been springing back to life and reigniting the grand old age of rail travel. Riding the rails may be old-school, but the charm of the experience will not be missed by anyone, least of all children.
The magic of rail travel will not fail to spark a child’s interest and imagination. Whether you ride through the billowing hills of snow on the Glacier Express in Switzerland, make your way through the craggy mountains of Canada on the Rocky Mountaineer or hop aboard the Jacobite Steam Train in Scotland like Harry Potter did, the opportunities to learn are endless.
Each journey is truly extraordinary, introducing children to a slower pace of life, with time to really soak up the atmosphere while adding a sense of adventure to a trip. Here the journey itself is the reward. The look of awe on your children’s faces as they watch the panoramic views of the world unfold before their eyes is the prize.
