Tailor Made Switzerland Holidays

Switzerland's scenic beauty is undoubtedly best admired from the comfort of a train seat. The fabulous Glacier Express which ascends into the Swiss Alps offers otherwise unattainable panoramic views of dramatic snow-washed peaks, dense pine forests, and wildflower-strewn Alpine meadows.

Mountains might be the dominant feature of any Swiss landscape, and none more so then the mighty Matterhorn, but the joy of an independent Swiss rail tour is that you can tailor your itinerary to include only those sights and activities which appeal to you - and if you've no head for heights, or skiing and snow-sports don't appeal, Switzerland has plenty more to amaze and amuse you.

The beautiful Lake Geneva, straddling Switzerland and France, offers the perfect opportunity to soak up the scenery whilst enjoying a gentle lake cruise. If your aim is to sample some of the chocolate for which Switzerland has become famous, you won't want to miss the pretty and historic town of Vevey; it was here in 1875 that milk chocolate originated.

Stylish Montreux, meanwhile, has inspired the cultural crowd since the nineteenth century, although its ancient but magnificently preserved medieval fortress tells of a longer and more colourful history. This picturesque lakeside town is the perfect addition to a bespoke itinerary in Switzerland.
