In tune with the season finale of "The Bachelor," Rail Europe is offering two themed packages: The Bachelor Romance Package and the Peaks of the World Package, which allows travelers to ride the rails and experience the romance of Switzerland like the guy on TV did. In the finale, bachelor Ben Flajnik went by train from Interlaken to Zermatt and stayed at the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa.

With the romance package, travelers ride the same rails and stay at the same place. It includes a four-night stay at the Victoria-Jungfrau or the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof, plus a first- or second-class rail component. Travel is valid through July 12 and is only bookable online at www.raileurope.com/promotions/the-bachelor.html. Prices start at $2,793 for first-class rail component and $2,696 for second-class rail component.

Romantically inclined travelers can also take advantage of Rail Europe’s Peaks of the World Package, which includes a four-night stay at a three- or four-star hotel, a free upgrade at the hotel, plus a first-class rail component. Those traveling from April 14 through June 15 get a free hotel upgrade from three to four star. Prices start at $1,017 for 1st class rail component and $920 for 2nd class rail component.
