One of the best ways of traveling, especially if you want to see the scenic beauty and enjoy nature and different cultures, is by train. Trains are the most comfortable, relaxing and agreeable form of long-distance travel.
It doesn’t matter if you want to enjoy in luxurious carriages, fantastic scenery, cultural heritage of your surroundings and epic long-distance journeys, there is no better way than choosing a railway journey.
You can find numerous high-speed railway lines all across the world. However, people mostly prefer air travel because it is convenient, especially if you want to reach from point A to point B as fast as you can.
However, if you keep in mind that train traveling has gone to a whole another level and you can now pass thousands of miles in one day, you will definitely enjoy it!
Imagine that you are in the first-class seat in a Swiss train rolling through Alpine surroundings, or in the Australian desert enjoying the best long-distance sleeping cars! How awesome is that!
There are lots of choices that you can pick from the bag filled with incredible journeys, but we decided to present you the best ones for your additional comfort!
As we have mentioned above, this Switzerland train starts at Chur and St. Moritz and runs through the border in Northern Italy with fantastic surroundings and things to see along the way. It is a 4-hour long ride that you will enjoy the most fantastic scenery and everything that surrounds us.
You will pass through 55 tunnels and 196 bridges through the Alpine landscape, glaciers, past lofty-waterfalls and dramatic ravines. Every carriage has big windows so that you can watch everything that surrounds you. In one moment, the train will climb to 7 thousand feet, and you will see a snowstorm that will remind you of the North Pole until you reach the Italian sunshine.
