About This Trip

This is a journey of a lifetime, filled with quaint towns, majestic glaciers, and breathtaking sights in between.

 

Switzerland is a stunning and intriguing country. With that being said, this journey has been meticulously planned to showcase the very best it has to offer during the winter, enjoying epic mountainous valleys, incredible snow-capped peaks, stunning waterfalls, postcard picture scenery wherever you look, and look you will, from your relaxing seats onboard Switzerland's incredible rail network. Check off this wonderful once in a lifetime trip aboard the Glacier Express, or the ‘must do’ Bernina line and everywhere in between, this is sure to be a trip that lives long in your memories.

 

You have the freedom to decide how you want to spend your first day in Lucerne, allowing yourself to welcome this beautiful but compact city at your own convenience and pace. The unforgettable journey kicks off on day 2, as you head off into the waterfalls of Interlaken, followed by Zermatt, and St. Moritz, a fusion of glitz, flair, and action, not to mention the gorgeous surroundings. You'll have the opportunity to venture on the Glacier Express between Zermatt and St. Moritz, the slowest express train on the planet. Add to that a journey along the renowned UNESCO-protected Bernina and Albula lines, which should check off all the boxes for Switzerland's "must do" rail rides.

 

You may unwind knowing that all of your travel requirements, including chic, comfortable lodgings, have been met for your 10-day holiday. During this memorable journey, you will travel on some of Switzerland's greatest panoramic railways and be captivated by glaciers, powdery snow, and frozen lakes!
