VOYAGES BY PRIVATE TRAIN
The sky, a stretch of mountain ranges, a splash of sea and then colors, fragrances, framed images roll by along unexplored horizons. It’s a world that
transmigrates in a sequence of cultures, traditions, and unforgettable feelings.
Iron wheels take you anywhere; get on a locomotive and let yourself go to the flow of the tracks. The sophisticated Golden Eagle Luxury Train offers a true “rail cruise” for adventurous globetrotters who are attracted by unique destinations, and want a comfortable and relaxing journey in style. Among cozy cabins, refined restaurants, and an elegant atmosphere, the itineraries are designed to turn your dreams of a lifetime into priceless memories.
The unique ingredient is being all-inclusive, through a complete program of offtrain excursions, a tasteful culinary experience in top-rated restaurants, and overnight stays at the finest five-star hotels in Prague, Budapest, Venice, and Istanbul, all on board the Golden Eagle Danube Express.
For 2017, the Shangri-La Express Private Train is headed from Russia to Tibet all the way to the South Caucasus for a train ride with a pioneering style. On board the luxurious Golden Eagle, travel the Silk Road to the Tibetan city of Lhasa. Go from the expanse of the Kara Kum desert in Kazakistan and the majestic mosques and minarets of Khiva, to the city of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
Then join a high-altitude train that takes you on a 14- hour trip along the “Roof of the World” in Lhasa, reaching the Tanggula Pass. Next October, start with a layover in the Tibetan capital, a treasure chest of an extraordinary collection of UNESCO heritage sites and temples, including the Summer Palace of the Dalai Lama. Guests will connect to the “Roof of the World” line at Golmund, then head north through the great desert of China, among breathtaking scenery and ancient cities, including Xining, Jiayuguan (for the Great Wall of China), Dunhuang, Turpan, Kashgar, and Urumqi.
