Stay: Four Nights, Brig, Hotel Stockalperhof

Daily :
  • Dinner

HOT TIP!

With multiple Michelin-starred restaurants, you don’t have to look far for great food in Zermatt. Or, for something traditional, hark back to the 1970s fondue era and dive bread-first into this melted delicacy.


Did you know that Zermatt is a car-free city? It’s a good thing we travel there by train! On arrival, wander at your own pace. Perhaps walk along one of the many marked trails, stroll the city's old village or take a ride on the highest open-air rack railway in Europe, the Gornergrat Railway.

Daily :
  • Breakfast

Head to Domodossola for a journey on the Centovalli Railway. Whisking you across sky-high viaducts, sheer cliffs and dense forests, the narrow-gauge track is the most picturesque route to Lake Maggiore. Stop briefly on the lake shore of Locarno for time at leisure.

Daily :
  • Breakfast
The Centrovalli scenic train crossing a bridge in the Hundred Valleys, Switzerland, Europe

HOT TIP!

Indulge in Switzerland's favourite chocolate, with a block of the famous Maison Cailler.


Another day, another rail adventure! Today, travel through the Swiss countryside en route to Montreux. Set at the base of the Alps, nestled on the shores of Lake Geneva and surrounded by vineyards, it’s no surprise Montreux is so appealing to travellers. Perhaps see the Freddie Mercury statue on the waterfront or make your way to Chateau de Chillon, a medieval castle set on a small island.

Daily :
  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

There really is no better way to see Switzerland than by train, a fact that becomes truly apparent aboard the Glacier Express – the world’s slowest express. Travelling in panoramic carriages, ramble through the Swiss meadows, past stone castles and across mountains. On arrival in to Davos, one of the largest resort towns in the Alps, relax in your hotel.

Stay: Three Nights, Davos, Hotel Strela

Daily :
  • Breakfast
  • Dinner
View from aboard a red train as it curved along the track in the distance, Switzerland

HOT TIP!

If you decide to spend the day in Filisur, you’ll want to head for the Landwasser viaduct viewpoint. A short walk from the station, it’s the perfect spot to watch trains cross over the iconic bridge.


With a free day, why not make the most of the discounted travel available with your Swiss Rail Pass to discover nearby Klosters, a picture-book town full of culture and history. Or, take the train to the lovely alpine village of Filisur.

Daily :
  • Breakfast

Today, prepare to recross the Alps on a journey along the Bernina Railway. Snap photos as you thread in and out and around the mountain slopes. On the highest-altitude rail route in Europe, learn from experts as you enjoy stunning sights around every corner. On arrival in Poschiavo, enjoy free time. Why not take a walk through the town centre and soak in its dream-like atmosphere before returning to Davos for dinner.

Daily :
  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

You'll board a train back to Zurich today to end your tour, rested and rejuvenated from the fresh alpine air.
