Discover two of the world's most scenic train journeys, the Glacier Express and the Bernina Express! Enjoy Switzerland's scenery on this classic four-night holiday with stops in the cities of Interlaken and Chur. Watch verdant fields, rushing rivers, snowy mountain passes and glaciers pass by from the panoramic windows of these two famous trains.
DAY 1 - LONDON TO INTERLAKEN
Take the Eurostar to Paris and transfer onto a TGV Lyria train to Basel. Speed through the French Champagne region passing quaint French villages and picturesque countryside before arriving into Basel. On arrival, change onto a direct service travelling to Interlaken. Upon arrival, check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. Once settled, maybe head out to the city centre and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail from the top floor bar of the Metropole hotel, taking in the incredible views over the city. (Overnight in Interlaken)
DAY 2 – JUNGFRAU DAY TRIP
Today, use your Swiss Pass to take a trip up the famous Jungfrau Mountain and journey to one of the highest train stations in Europe. Travel through tunnels made of solid Alpine rock, before arriving at Jungfraujoch. Enjoy breath taking views to the Vosges Mountains in France and the Black Forest in Germany. The Great Aletsch Glacier, at 22km the longest in the Alps, begins on the Jungfrau Mountain. Return to Interlaken later for an additional overnight stay. (Overnight in Interlaken) B
DAY 3 - GLACIER EXPRESS TO CHUR
Check out of your hotel after breakfast and make your way to the train station for the journey to Brig. The train rides the rails over the spectacular Lötschberg Mountain via Kandersteg en route to Brig. On arrival, board the Glacier Express and take a panoramic tour of the Swiss Alps from Brig through to Chur. Travel in comfort aboard what is probably the world's slowest express train, through the unspoilt beauty of mountain forests, peaceful Alpine meadows and lush valleys. Upon arrival in Chur, check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. The "oldest city in Switzerland", Chur is situated in a deep valley formed by the Rhine, and has a rich and powerful history. (Overnight in Chur) B
DAY 4 - BERNINA EXPRESS
After an early breakfast, depart from Chur on the Bernina Express to Tirano via St Moritz. The train crosses the Alps and offers breath-taking views from the panoramic carriages. Ride over spectacular viaducts, through sheer rock gorges and switch-back tunnels, alongside mountain streams and glaciers. Be sure not to miss the impressive Landwasser Viaduct, which will appear on your right just before Filisur, an hour outside of St Moritz. The train climbs up the 2,253 metre high Bernina Pass and the entire trip is narrated. Food is available to buy on the train. This whole area is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The line finishes in the Italian border town of Tirano and, after time for a bite to eat, you board the train back to Chur. (Overnight in Chur) B
