From the land of the midnight sun in Norway to the majestic mountains of New Zealand, we will be taking six very individual and stunningly beautiful train journeys, narrated by Bill Nighy. On each one we’ll meet the people who work and live along these special rail lines in six different countries – Norway, Canada, Switzerland, Wales, Spain and New Zealand. We’ll explore the natural wonders along the route, meet the engineers who keep the trains running, and historians who reveal the challenges the builders faced when constructing these magnificent feats of engineering. These are no ordinary trips, these are some of the most scenic rail journeys in the World!

Episode 2: Canada

We ride Canada’s iconic Rocky Mountaineer in a jaw-dropping loop that takes us from Vancouver to the heart of the Rockies through some of North America’s most staggering natural beauty to Banff in Alberta. The two-day Rainforest to Gold Rush route offers a variety of landscapes unequalled anywhere in the world. We travel past vast crystal-clear lakes, through lush coastal rainforest, and the desert-like splendour of the Fraser Canyon.

Episode 1: Norway

Cutting through the magical beauty of Norway, this train journey begins in the capital of Oslo and takes us all the way to Bodø inside the Arctic Circle. Our first leg is the 548km Dovre line running from Oslo to the remote northern wonderland of Trondheim, passing along the way through the vast Gudbrandsdal valley and across the awe- inspiring DovreSell mountain plateau here trolls lurk, and we explore exquisite medieval wood villages
