The Hogwarts Express Experience train ride takes visitors 135 kilometers through the Scottish countryside, past the iconic Glennfinnan Viaduct 

THE Scotland and its beautiful medieval settings have already served as inspiration for several classics of cinema and TV, among them the Harry Potter movies. Now, fans of the little wizard created by JK Rowling will be able to board the real Hogwarts Express on a fantastic journey down the tracks.

the tour Hogwarts Express Experience was created by the company West Highland Railways and will be available from April to August 2019. Although it does not depart from London's famous platform 9 ¾, the train follows in some Harry Potter footsteps, in particular its passage over the iconic Glennfinnan Bridge. The sumptuous viaduct that gained fame in the movies has 21 arches, 380 meters long and over 30 meters high.

The route starts from Fort William, about two hours by car from Glasgow, and goes to Mallaig, passing through the beautiful region of the Scottish Highlands – or Highlands –, which can also be traveled in reverse. The path is dotted with impressive mountains, rivers and tunnels, as well as the deepest sweet lake in the world, Loch Nevis.

The coolest thing is that the tour of approximately 135 kilometers takes place aboard a train very similar to the one in the movie, the Jacobite, a steam engine in the steam engine style. Although the destination is not the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, those who embark on this tour will experience moments full of beautiful landscapes, historic buildings and, believe me: good doses of magic.

Tickets for the tour cost €28 for children and €50 for adults. For more information on timetables and to purchase tickets, Click here to access the website West Coast Railways.
