There are many different ways we can move from point A to point B in current times. Whether you prefer to fly somewhere and make it to your destination asap, or you like driving somewhere and making the journey itself part of the adventure, there are options. One great option people often disregard is taking a train! Train journeys are great because they’re spacious, you can get up and walk around at your leisure, and you can enjoy the scenery out.
There are some amazing train journeys out there that any traveler or explorer should consider. Take The Jacobite, a stream train that takes you through the majestic Highland of Scotland. Or the Trans-Siberian, another option to make a memorable trip out of. This historic, longest single railway in the world takes you through Russia, Mongolia, and China.
Another one of the longest journeys in the world takes place in Australia where the Indian Pacific crosses the entire country, taking you through mountains, deserts, and ghost towns.
If you want a fast, reliable, and comfortable train head to Tokyo and take the bullet train to Kyoto, and take in the view of beautiful Mt. Fuji. And for some breathtaking natural beauty, head to the Canadian Rockies and take the Rocky Mountaineer with glass domed roofs to take in all the surrounding nature.
But there’s more! Check out the infographic below to learn about 12 of the most amazing train journeys.

This is a great list! I’d love to do all of them – but the bullet train in Japan is really high on my list!!
I’d totally do them all too.
