Here’s What Your Amazing Holiday Could Look Like...
Arguably one of the most iconic rail journeys in the world; travel past snow-capped mountains and rolling hills as you make your way from Zurich to Lucerne, stopping at some of Switzerland’s most scenic cities enroute. From the shimmering lakes of St Moritz to the waterfalls of Interlaken, make sure your camera is charged - there are incredible landscapes waiting for you around every corner. And that’s without mentioning the delicious cuisine you’ll be indulging in; think hunks of bread dipped in bubbling cheese fondue and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate. Remember, this itinerary is only a suggestion of what can be experienced in Switzerland. Just ask your Travel Expert to plan your perfect trip.

Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Zurich.
Enjoy breakfast in your hotel, before hopping aboard the train for one of the most scenic rail journeys in Europe. Gaze out at the snow-capped mountains and epic landscape as you may your way to St Moritz, your home for the next two days. If you’re here in winter, go ice-skating over the huge frozen lake; brave the bob run or ski down the slopes. In summer, there are endless hiking and biking trails for you to try.
5* Kempinski Grand
Admire the fabulous panoramas of the Alps once again as you ride the iconic train to Zermatt. This hugely popular ski resort is renowned for its fine powder snow, incredible hotels and endless ski slopes. Don’t miss the chance to ride the train to the Gornergrat for incredible views of the Matterhorn; there’s even a cafe at the top for that all-important hot chocolate.
4* Romantik Hotel Julen
Back on the train to the scenic town of Interlaken, which sits between two glacier lakes. One of the best ways to experience the epic scenery here is by cable car or onboard the mountain railway. Admire the waterfalls of Lake Brienz or explore the picturesque castles of Lake Thun, before stopping for a coffee at one of the many pavement cafes in town.
5* Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa
Soak up the scenery on your final rail ride to Lucerne. Spend your last day discovering this picture-perfect city - glide over Lake Lucerne in a paddlesteamer or take in one of the many classical music concerts this city is famed for.
5* Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern
Return to Zurich Airport and fly home to the UK.
