Day 1 - Arrive and explore Zermatt for 3 nights

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 car-free Zermatt and be sure to experience one of the unmissable mountain journeys, such as the network of cable cars to Klein Matterhorn - which at 3,883m 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 for 4 nights

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. 

Day 5-7 - St. Moritz and the Graubünden

During the summer months, your visit is greatly enhanced by the Engadin Card with free transport including mountain railways and cable cars. This gives you unlimited access to wonderful walks and excursions, including the excellent panoramic walk at Alp Languard with views over the Bernina massif. Other recommendations include the funicular to Corviglia, connecting to the cable car to Piz Nair at 3,057m. We include a day trip on the Bernina Express from St. Moritz to Tirano in Italy. This stunning rail journey crosses the Alps from towering glaciers and high mountain lakes to swaying palms of Italy – with time to enjoy an Italian lunch!

Day 8 - Last day

Time for a last look around St. Moritz before you take the train to Zurich airport for your flight to the UK.
