Rail Journey

Take the scenic trip of a lifetime through Switzerland on this five-night holiday by air and rail. Starting with an overnight stay in Montreux, continue the journey along the Golden Pass Line to Interlaken. Take a memorable trip to the highest railway station at the top of Jungfrau Mountain, before travelling through the Swiss Alps aboard the Glacier Express to Chur. Complete this incredible journey with a day trip across spectacular viaducts and glide past impressive glaciers, on the Bernina Express to Tirano.


Travel to Geneva from UK by air, and then transfer onto a train from the airport to Montreux. If you prefer to travel from London to Montreux by train, that option is available as well. Upon arrival, make your way to your hotel and check in for an overnight stay. In the evening, perhaps enjoy a meal in one of the local restaurants or maybe stroll along the stunning lakefront promenade, before returning to the hotel for a good night's rest. (Overnight in Montreux)


Enjoy breakfast in the hotel before making your way to the railway station and joining the Golden Pass train. As the journey begins, the route rises above Lake Geneva, offering amazing views of the Swiss Riviera. The train passes through a mountain tunnel at Jaman, and then continues to Chateaux d'Oex and Gstaad. The highest point of the journey is at 1, 274 metres, before arriving in Zweisimmen. From Zweisimmen, the train snakes its way through the Simme Valley and then continues on to Interlaken, between Lakes Thun and Brienz. On arrival, check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. (Overnight in Interlaken)


After breakfast, you will climb to Europe's highest altitude railway station on Jungfrau Mountain, at a colossal 3,454 metres high. The journey takes you to Kleine Scheidegg, before reaching the station at Eigergletscher, which is well known for its mountain restaurant and Huskies. At Jungfraujoch, take in the breathtaking views of the Black Forest in Germany and the Vosges Mountains in France. After a spectacular day sightseeing, return to the hotel for the second night of your stay. (Overnight in Interlaken)


Depart Interlaken today and travel to Brig by train, over the incredible Lötschberg Mountain, where you will meet the Glacier Express. Once on board the train, follow the tracks through the majestic Swiss Alps on the journey from Brig to Chur. The train gently glides along the rails through peaceful Alpine meadows, deep valleys and lush forests to Chur. On arrival, make your way to your hotel and check in for a two-night stay. (Overnight in Chur)


Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and then take the Bernina Express for the final part of the trip to Tirano via St. Moritz. Be dazzled at the incredible views of imposing glaciers, sheer rock gorges and far-reaching viaducts through the panoramic carriages of the train. Watch out for the magnificent Landwasser Viaduct just before the village of Filisur. A stop will be made in Tirano or Poschiavo for lunch and then you will be transported back to Chur for the last night of your stay. (Overnight in Chur)
