Emerging as the antidote to the “time poor” phenomenon of modern life and the generic, whistle-stop European minibreak – slow travel is not just about the destination, but the voyage.
Often, we are so focused on our arrival, that we miss the beauty of our journey. Here at Golden Eagle Luxury Trains, we feel that the train window is the ultimate lens to enjoy the splendour of the European vista.
“On board a train, time is suspended. Landscapes roll past, inspiration comes, discussions start, until, suddenly, you reach your destination, just as if time had flown.” Hervé Marro, 2021.
