Watching the countryside fly by while snuggled next to your honey on the train makes for a perfect romantic getaway. Enjoy all the amenities modern trains offer: private carriages, comfortable beds and individual bathrooms.

While your budget informs the level of luxury you choose, make sure that comfort comes first. You’ll be spending a lot of time in close quarters with your loved one, and you want every moment to be bliss. All three of the following trains offer a range of itineraries, so couples can easily choose a trip that perfectly meets their needs.

Royal Scotsman

Wake to views of the misty mountain tops, castles, and glens of Scotland rolling by your window. Sip your coffee as you indulge in a beautifully prepared breakfast using only the freshest ingredients.

During the day, step out on the delightful verandah to get a breath of fresh air or lounge on the sofas in the observation car. In the evening, chat with other travellers over a drink and enjoy some traditional Scottish entertainment. Then retire to your cabin for a blissful night’s sleep.

Indian Pacific

This incredible Australian coast-to-coast train journey leaves from Sydney or Perth, and navigates the immense desert of the Nullarbor Plain. You and your partner will no doubt enjoy the leisure-filled, cross-continental expedition, which features the longest stretch of railway track in the world.

The exciting itinerary allows time for exploring, and couples will have the opportunity to go sightseeing in Adelaide, the Outback mining town of Broken Hill in western New South Wales and Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

Golden Chariot

Looking for a more exotic destination? A journey on the Golden Chariot, a train that allows passengers to explore Karnataka state in Southwest India, provides a rich cultural and historical experience with some necessary beach time for balance. With an intricately decorated interior and decadent, aromatic Indian meals, this train offers couples the chance to have the adventure of a lifetime.
