Your celebration experiences
The spectacular lakes and mountains scenery of Switzerland lends itself to creating lifelong memories. There are any number of special excursions you may want to embark upon during your stay in Switzerland. These are some of the very best.
In the Lake Lucerne region, a lake cruise on an elegant paddle-wheel steamer is a must for any visitor. For those celebrating, we recommend upgrading to 1st class and booking a Sunday brunch cruise during which you can indulge in Swiss delicacies and enjoy the passing scenery. Over in the Bernese Oberland, there are mountain delights - a meal in the revolving restaurant atop the Schilthorn mountain or a sunset drink on the Harder Kulm with beautiful views over Interlaken and the Jungfrau mountains.
If you are in the Valais region, why not visit the Rothorn mountain - it offers one of the most glorious views of the Matterhorn, which you can admire while you walk or relax and enjoy a Champagne picnic. Another great place to sip Champagne is at the Schatzalp resort in the Graubünden region, which also offers a delightful Alpine Garden. If natural beauty captivates you, head for the Brissago Islands on Ticino's Lake Maggiore - heavenly subtropical flowers bloom here and make for a special day out.
Of the many scenic rail day trips, two of the most charming are the Chocolate Train with its Belle Epoque carriages and the historic Furka Line steam train. Both of these are extremely popular with visitors wanting a very special experience, so we do recommend that you book in advance.
Your celebration scenic rail
Many people choose to mark a special occasion with a longer, multi centre holiday, so that they can experience more of this spectacular country. The best way to travel around Switzerland is on one of the famous scenic rail journeys and we will be delighted to put together an itinerary for you, incorporating your choice of resorts and journeys.
Many of the famous trains such as the Glacier Express and Bernina Express have panoramic viewing carriages, with huge windows for you to enjoy the passing scenery. The GoldenPass Line even has VIP seats which can be booked at the very front of the train. For the ultimate scenic holiday, you can combine several scenic journeys on our Grand Rail Tour of Switzerland.
There is perhaps no finer way to spend a special day than to indulge yourself with a bottle of bubbly and a magnificent panoramic view of beautiful Switzerland gliding past you.
We can help make your holiday special from beginning to end. You can travel in style with an upgrade to business class flights from the UK and 1st class rail transfers between the airport and your resort. You can choose a hotel room with a particular view or opt for a spacious junior suite. We can also make arrangements for wine or flowers for your room, or even a birthday cake at dinner.
Finally, if you are booking a Switzerland holiday as a surprise for a loved one, please do tell us so that we may keep your secret safe.
