Solo Adventure by Rail

Created: 23 January 2015

As so enthusiastically illustrated by Michael Portillo in his popular BBC Two series, ‘Great Continental Railway Journeys’, solo travel by rail can be one of life’s greatest pleasures. Follow in his tracks with a tailor-made itinerary from rail holiday specialist, Ffestiniog Travel, created to emulate his experiences. An 11-night trip from La Coruna to Lisbon - featuring Santiago de Compostela, the Douro Valley and Porto amongst its many highlights - costs from £865 pp including flights (London) to Bilbao/from Lisbon, standard class rail travel and B&B throughout.
