Bernina Express

Day 2 – The Bernina Express

Bernina Express

You'll board the Bernina Express today, for a very special journey. On this 100 years old route you'll make your way through tunnels and over bridges, including the landmark Landwasser Viaduct, passing deep ravines and picturesque waterfalls. You'll travel in Panoramic Carriages on this heritage railway, enjoying the rugged landscape of the Engadine Valley, before this historic route takes you through the Albula Tunnel and over the Bernina Pass. You'll then descends towards Poschiavo, the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. Pretty pastel houses line the street as you continue on and cross into Italy. Your journey ends in Tirano, where the return journey begins back to St Moritz.

Glacier Express

Day 3 – The Glacier Express

Glacier Express

You'll board the magnificent Glacier Express today, beginning your panoramic journey with the descent towards Chur. The train then climbs steadily upwards into the snow-capped mountains where you'll reach the journey's highest point, before descending along the Rhone Valley aboard 'The Slowest Express Train in the World'. Your journey takes you through Swiss scenes of green meadows and turquoise river gorges, before the final part of your journey climbs back into the mountains, arriving at the car free village of Zermatt, where you'll see your first dramatic views of the iconic Matterhorn mountain. Optionally you may decide to enjoy a two or three course lunch onboard.

Choose a Classic carriage aboard the Glacier Express or upgrade to First class or Excellence class. First class has the benefit of more space to stretch out, for extra leg room, and fewer passengers in your carriage. Excellence class gives you a much more special journey, with guaranteed window seats, a five-course menu with pairing wines for each course, and a dedicated concierge. But each carriage, whichever class you choose, benefits from panoramic windows.

On arrival in Zermatt you'll transfer to your hotel for the night. Choose from our handpicked 4* and 5* hotels, on a B&B basis.

Please note: There will be no Glacier Express trains running between 13th October to 7th December.

Day 5 – Zermatt to Interlaken


Toady you'll travel from Zermatt to Interlaken, in the Jungfrau region, by train. Interlaken is an alpine town that benefits from incredible views of three magnificent mountains - Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau. Take some time to wander around and soak in the alpine atmosphere in your free time today, shop for traditional Swiss souvenirs like chocolates and watches, and take in the incredible scenery, or choose from one of our optional excursions which are bookable at a supplement.

You'll travel by cogwheel train through the final section of the route, from the Eiger Galcier, into a tunnel that cuts through the Eiger. Here, carved-out viewing windows show the scenery of tumbling glaciers from inside the tunnel.
