Marrying two canal-based cities, and covering some of Europe’s most beautiful countryside in between, the Venice Simplon-Orient Express Venice to Stockholm route is understandably popular. Beginning in one if Italy’s urban gems, along the way to Sweden’s capital you will pass through Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and Denmark, making for a truly luxurious trans-continental passage.
Arrive at Venice’s Santa Lucia station to board the Simpon-Orient Express, with the steward ready to show you to the private cabin. After departure, sit down to indulge in a sumptuous three course lunch, before spending the afternoon whiling away the hours either in your cabin or the Bar Car, where elegant drinks are served and passengers mingle.
Later, an evening meal will be served in the shape of a four-course menu prepared by expert French chefs. Once finished, you will have the remainder of the night to do with as you see fit, before retiring to your cabin, which has now been transformed into an opulent travelling bedroom.
Waking up to find the train passing through dramatic Scandinavian scenery, breakfast will be served in your cabin at a time of your choosing. Next, move on the one of the painstakingly restored Restaurant Cars to enjoy a relaxed lunch before pulling in to Copenhagen’s Hovedbanegard Station.

In the afternoon, time can be spent as you choose, so explore the city’s many parks, grand regal buildings, museums, internationally renowned food culture, or world-class shopping districts.
That evening you will be taken to a secret venue for an exclusive meal in the heartland of the New Nordic Food Movement to gorge on some of the finest gastronomy in the world, before retiring in your hotel room to prepare for tomorrow’s onward journey.
