Winter scenic rail journeys Glorious winter journeys throughout Switzerland

Imagine a scenic rail journey meandering across a winter landscape covered in pristine snow with a backdrop of a clear blue sky ....

Many of Switzerland’s scenic journeys travel over high passes, which are covered in snow for most of the winter. The change of scenery from summer is quite dramatic and is highly recommended even if you are familiar with the scenic rail routes. We have suggested itineraries to experience beautiful Switzerland in wintertime - including the Glacier Express and the GoldenPass Line - with excursions included, taking in some of the country's most stunning sights. We will however be pleased to tailor make any scenic rail itinerary to suit your requirements.

Express Luggage: Transfer your bags between resorts

To help you enjoy your scenic rail journey between many resorts, you can arrange 'Express Luggage'. All you need to do is hand your luggage into the station before 9am and then collect it at your destination on the same day any time after 6pm. There are a few stations where your luggage will not be available until the following morning when we would recommend carrying an overnight bag with you.

The cost of each luggage transfer is £10 per item plus an additional charge of £24 regardless of the number of items of luggage.
