    Rail Holidays & Iconic Journeys

    Hop on board for a rail adventure of a lifetime.

    At FREEDOM, we offer some of the most iconic rail journeys in the world, traversing incredible landscapes inaccessible by other means of travel. Add first class service and unique off train excursions and the result is a rail experience you will never forget.

    As tailor made specialists, you can also book your rail journey, flights, hotels and any additional day tours or activities in one place, with full ATOL protection. Just let us know where you would like to go.


    Australia’s famous Ghan and Indian Pacific are two of the most iconic and longest rail journeys in the world. Connecting the beautiful cities of Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin, the bush, mountain, rainforest and red centre scenery is simply spectacular.

    Further east you can journey on the Spirit of Queensland between Cairns and Brisbane or hop between cities with a rail pass.


    Undoubtedly Canada’s most famous train is the Rocky Mountaineer, which operates three routes through the spellbinding Canadian Rockies, from Vancouver to Jasper, Banff or Lake Louise. The magnificent vistas, viewed through luxurious glass-domed carriages, make it one of the world’s ultimate travel experiences.

    VIA Rail runs services across Canada, connecting east and west as well as the frozen north and the beautiful Maritime provinces.


    In the USA we offer a host of independent American rail holidays, across deserts, plains and mountain ranges, with accommodation, sightseeing and activities all pre-booked for you.

    In addition, we can arrange tickets for the long distance Coast Starlight, Maple Leaf and California Zephyr trains and shorter intercity rail service between Washington, New York and Boston. Plus the inaugural Rocky Mountaineer route in the USA, Rockies to the Red Rocks.

    New Zealand

    The great rail journeys of New Zealand are a fabulous way to soak up the country’s breathtaking scenery.

    On the South Island the TranzAlpine train crosses the mountains between Christchurch and Greymouth and the Coastal Pacific connects Christchurch to the scenic town of Picton, from where you can catch the Interislander Ferry.

    The Northern Explorer travels through the heart of beautiful North Island from Auckland to Wellington.

    Thailand & South East Asia

    Experience the golden days of train travel on the Eastern and Oriental Express from Bangkok to Singapore, through the Malay Peninsular.

    Or try one of our unique rail experiences, such as a ride on the ‘Death Railway’ across the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai, or an overnight Hanoi to Sapa train journey in the hills of northern Vietnam.

    South Africa

    South Africa’s original luxury rail journey, The Blue Train travels between Cape Town and Pretoria, with a special bi-annual extension to Kruger National Park.

    The beautifully restored Rovos Rail offers an equally luxurious experience, with its carriages and dress code paying homage to the glamour of the 1920’s. Cocktail in hand, watch South African landscapes unfold before you, on routes between Pretoria and Cape Town, Durban and Victoria Falls.
