This 3-day Switzerland vacation takes you aboard the Glacier Express to journey to picturesque alpine resorts, St. Moritz and Zermatt.

Your trip to Switzerland begins in Zurich, the centre of Switzerland’s financial industry. Head to the Zurich train station to board the train and journey to your first destination, St. Moritz, a luxury resort town near Albula Gorge. After taking in the picturesque town, board the famous Glacier Express, which will take you throughout the Swiss Alps and showcase the majesty of the landscape. As you ride high throughout the mountains, you’ll be treated to views of snow-capped peaks, dense forests, and surging waterfalls through the train’s panoramic windows.

Disembark in Zermatt, a gorgeous resort perched in the shadow of the Matterhorn, Europe’s most famous mountain. Spend a day exploring the town. Stroll along the main street, Bahnhofstrasse, to pick up some souvenirs in the boutique shops and take a hike in the nearby hills. Take the cable car up to Mt. Gornergart to enjoy breathtaking views of the valley. That afternoon, take the train back to Zurich to continue your onward journey.

This trip along the Glacier Express is a great addition to a longer Swiss vacation.
