This famous Glacier Express journey travels down to Chur through stunning scenery with majestic viaducts and along the awesome Rhine Gorge. You’ll cross over the Alps via the impressive Oberalp Pass at 2,044m and it’s then on through the gentle Goms Valley with picturesque villages, to the town of Brig. At Brig change to the mainline railway to the grand lakeside resort of Montreux.

Day 7-9 - Free days in and around Montreux on the beautiful Swiss Riviera

Montreux is fascinating town, with cafés and a wonderful promenade which you can follow to the romantic Chillon Castle – entry is free with your Swiss Travel Pass, as is travel on the lake steamers and mainline trains so you can visit Geneva for the day, or perhaps Lausanne and the vineyards at Lavaux. The mountain railway to Les Rochers-De-Naye at 50% reduction is highly recommended for spectacular views. Chaplin's World in Vevey is also a great visit with 50% off with your Riviera Card.

Day 10 - Experience the GoldenPass Express to Interlaken

A day to savour with your journey on the GoldenPass Express to Interlaken. You start with a stunning ascent as you leave Montreux, heading for the high meadows and dramatic mountain views and passing through Gstaad to Zweisimmen. Here, the train switches track for your journey down the Simmen valley to Spiez and the final run alongside Lake Thun to Interlaken.

Day 11-14 - Interlaken and the glorious Bernese Oberland

There is so much on offer here with your Swiss Travel Pass which you could use for free unlimited travel on the Lakes of Thun & Brienz. A favourite trip is a leisurely cruise from Interlaken to Brienz with a half price trip on the Brienzer Rothorn steam railway which has been chugging away since 1892. You can also travel for free to the alpine villages of Wengen and Grindelwald. From here, the mountain railways and cable cars are offered with up to 50% reduction, or a memorable visit to the Jungfraujoch is available at 25% reduction. We also suggest a return day trip on the Luzern-Interlaken Express (free with your Swiss Travel Pass) - this striking journey is 2 hours of relaxation and fabulous views each way as you travel over the Brünig Pass to Lucerne.

Time for your last look around the shops of Interlaken before your journey back to Zurich airport.
