Deluxe Switzerland: Sils-Maria, Bern, Zermatt & More

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,269

DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: This first class luxury Switzerland tour takes you to many of the country’s most beloved and picturesque destinations, including St Moritz, Bern, and Zermatt, home to the iconic Matterhorn, all while enjoying some of the worlds most scenic rail routes.


This 7-day round trip from Zurich takes you to many of the Swiss highlights, including luxury accommodation and transfers, and delicious gourmet meals.

Transfer from Zurich airport via first class rail to Sils Maria, then settle in for a welcome drink and five course dinner. Your options in this inspiring town are endless. Take a horse drawn carriage ride, explore on your own, or with a local guide, or simply relax at the hotel spa. Those who do go exploring will be walking in the footsteps of Nietzche, Bowie, and others who’ve found inspiration in Sils Maria’s views.

A private limousine takes you through St Moritz, a region that has become the byword for Alpine luxury, and showcases Switzerland at its most beautiful, from towering peaks to sweeping gorges and chic ski lodges. Your final destination is Zermatt, where the instantly recognizable Matterhorn overlooks one of Switzerland’s most delightful towns. It’s also a car-free destination, offering terrific opportunities to enjoy the natural surroundings and relaxed village ambiance.

Next, transfer to Bern. But why settle for another road journey in this land of beautiful lakes? Cross Lake Thun to Switzerland’s capital, commonly praised as the most beautiful of the major Swiss cities. Indeed, it’s the only one to receive a UNESCO World Heritage listing, at least for its old town, and shopaholics will fall in love with the ‘Lauben’ arcades. This is not a city that can be rushed, so a private tour lets you enjoy Bern on a full day of sightseeing, ending with a complimentary massage to recharge any aching muscles.

Transfer back to Zurich for your return flight, or onward journey.
