We begin our journey from the fashionable skiing and summer resort of Gstaad by travelling through the pretty, chalet-filled villages of the German-speaking Saanenland region. As we leave the Saanenland, you will notice that the village names become French. One of the first villages we come to is Châteaux d'Oex - a popular destination for hot air ballooning. We continue through the Pays d'Enhaut valley to the village of Montbovon before ascending through wild, Alpine scenery towards the Jaman Tunnel.
During our journey through the tunnel, the longest on the line, we leave the Alps behind and emerge to a more Mediterranean landscape. From here the train encounters the steepest gradient on the line - a descent of 1 in 37 - through woodland to the winter resort of Les Avants. The GoldenPass Line reaches Lake Geneva, offering magnificent views of the lake's glittering waters and the surrounding peaks. The train makes its final descent through vineyards, twisting and turning through a series of impressive horseshoe curves to our final destination, lively Montreux.
