Switzerland Rail & Escorted Holidays

Switzerland's scenery commands attention. Ancient glaciers that have slowly taken shape over millennia, age-old mountain peaks, lakes you just can't help but dip your toes in, and Alpine meadows that offer up a botanical feast for the eyes. These landscapes lend themselves effortlessly to the intrinsic charms of rail travel, so it's little wonder that Switzerland's rail journeys are among the most iconic, not to mention scenic, in the world.

Away from the wild allure of nature, chocolate-box villages, medieval towns and modern cities are waiting to be explored. Add in a rich history and enticing cuisine, who can resist Swiss chocolate and cheese, and you'll start to understand all this destination has to offer.
