The sparkling mountains of Switzerland and Austria are jewels in Europe's crown and winter showcases them at their finest.
Would you prefer the tranquil crystal lakes and waterfalls of the Austrian Tyrol or the glittering cities of Salzburg and Vienna? View Switzerland's dramatic peaks along the Oberalp Pass from the comfort of the legendary Glacier Express or by visiting the invigorating Swiss resorts of picture perfect Kandersteg or fashionable Montreux. Perhaps discover the dramatic Dolomites in Italy for an entirely different Alpine experience.

Should you decide to venture off and explore on your own the tour manager will be able to advise you on a number of issues. Once you have decided to view cultural, historical or natural sights your tour manager can recommend a variety of points of interest, will be able to assist you in matters of alpine safety and find the best places to stop for lunch.
