Highlights

Travel on some of the world’s most renowned train journeys on a 14 day Spectacular Switzerland by Rail.

Arrive into Zurich and have a day of independent exploration to acquaint yourself with this contemporary city. There is more to Zurich than just its banks and commercial clout, and travellers have a wealth of museums and galleries, quaint laneways in the Old Town, and gorgeous lookout points to uncover. Continue to Lucerne, a city located on the banks of Lake Lucerne that is regarded as a key gateway into central Switzerland. There is no need to worry about what to do with your luggage while aboard this train journey – or for any of the rail voyages featured in the tour, for that matter. A luggage transfer is included for all of your rail trips, meaning your suitcases are sent ahead to your destination and will be waiting at your hotel upon your arrival – an incredible convenience! And with no need to keep an eye on your bags as you travel, all that is left for you to do is sit back and enjoy the passing landscape of some of Switzerland’s most spectacular countryside.

Move into the Italian-influenced canton on Ticino as you set out for Lugano while following the famous Gotthard route. This trip includes a paddle steamer ride across Lake Lucerne to Flüelen! Have an evening to soak in the Mediterranean-style atmosphere of Lugano ahead of taking the Bernina Bus to Tirano and then the Bernina Express to St. Moritz. The latter journey is astoundingly scenic and encompasses UNESCO-protected landscapes. Use free time in St. Moritz to shop in its high-end boutiques or head out to the slopes of neighbouring mountains. Settle into a panoramic carriage aboard the Glacier Express to reach Zermatt, located at the foothills of the mighty Matterhorn, and enjoy a day at leisure in this classic resort town. While away an afternoon in Montreux by ambling its waterfront promenade or visiting the island-perched Chateau de Chillon. Then, upon reaching Interlaken, head up to the highest railway in Europe at Jungfraujoch on a fantastic guided excursion. Be sure to have your camera poised at the ready to capture the views from this lofty location – so high it is nicknamed the ‘Top of Europe’! Finally, navigate the Brunig Pass on the return trip to Zurich.
