Rail journeys, rail tours, escorted rail holidays, exploring the world's historic railways or simply buying a single rail ticket – all reasons why Ffestiniog Travel can claim to be Britain's 'complete specialist' in railway travel around the world today.

Ffestiniog Travel has been arranging rail holidays around the world for over 40 years from its base in North Wales. Its journey began in 1974 when it ran its first ever escorted rail tour to Switzerland. 

Today Ffestiniog Travel produces a programme of up to 40 escorted rail tours each year to destinations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.  Its Swiss tours continue to be a big hit alongside its annual rail holiday to India. Closer to home discover the UK’s ‘great British rail journeys’ on tours that venture on the many ‘Great Little Trains’ of North Wales and Scotland’s dramatic rail routes.
