Ffestiniog European Short Breaks by Rail

Escorted rail holiday specialist Ffestiniog Travel is featuring four relaxing short-haul itineraries to Romania, Switzerland, Germany and Austria this May and June 2019.

One option, departing May 15, is a 12-day tour; 'Romania's Danube Delta & the Carparthians: A Wildlife Paradise'. Led by local and natural world experts, the trip is a chance to explore one of Europe’s last true wilderness areas. It includes a search for rare wading birds in the pretty Danube Delta, tracking bears in the Vrancea Mountains, also attending the region’s annual shepherding festival. Several nights will be spent in characterful homestay accommodation and there is the opportunity to travel on the former narrow gauge forestry railway at Covasna and Comandau by privately chartered steam train, journey by rail across the mountains from Brasov to Bucharest (travelling through the ski resorts of Predeal and Sinaia) and take an optional excursion to visit Bran Castle, inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

The holiday costs from £2,320 per person based on two sharing and includes flights, rail travel as per the itinerary, other travel by private mini-coach, three nights’ hotel accommodation in Bucharest, eight nights’ accommodation in good-quality guesthouses or family homestays with en-suite facilities, most meals, airport and other transfers, and the services of a tour leader from London and throughout the tour, plus a local professional Romanian guide and specialist guides where required.

Other May and June 2019 trips include a 15-day 'Elbe: Sea to Source' itinerary through Germany and the Czech Republic, and a 16-day 'The Alps & More' tour through Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
