"A true highlight of a holiday to Switzerland is a journey on the Glacier Express. This is made all the more memorable with lunch served at your seat."
Day 1 - Arrive and explore

Flight from the UK to Zurich airport with rail travel to Zermatt.

Check in to your hotel for your 3 night stay and enjoy your first views of the Matterhorn mountain.

Day 2-3 - Zermatt & the Valais region

Zermatt is surrounded by awesome mountains, the most famous being the Matterhorn, which dominates this traditional alpine village. Enjoy your time in this car-free village and be sure to experience one of the unmissable mountain journeys with the 50% reduction offered with your Swiss Travel Pass, such as the network of cable cars to Klein Matterhorn - at 3,883 metres is the highest sightseeing point in Europe. Try an alternative view from the idyllic lake of Schwarzsee at the foot of the Matterhorn, or take the cog railway to the pure air and mountain restaurants of the Gornergrat. You will not be disappointed by the views and walking routes in this stunning alpine region.

Day 4 - Glacier Express to St. Moritz

On the fourth day you will join the leisurely Glacier Express train on its journey to St. Moritz in the scenic Upper Engadin region. This wonderful journey takes 7½ hours in the comfort of special panoramic coaches where a 3 course lunch is served at your table and refreshments are available throughout your trip. Highlights of this classic route through the mountains include the Landwasser Viaduct, the Rhine Gorge and the Devil's Bridge near Andermatt. Enjoy your first sight of the beautiful countryside around St. Moritz, before checking into your hotel for your 4 night stay.
