Prices From:
US$ 1,720

Board the Glacier Express for an unforgettable train ride through the picturesque Swiss Alps. On this journey, you’ll travel from dazzling St. Moritz to sophisticated Zermatt, enjoy a stay in magical Interlaken, and visit Jungfrau, the highest train station in Europe and one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps.


This 5-day Switzerland vacation takes you aboard the Glacier Express to picturesque alpine destinations like St. Mortiz, Zermatt, and Interlaken.

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. The next day, 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. Stroll along the main street, Bahnhofstrasse, to pick up some souvenirs in the boutique shops and take a hike in the nearby hills. That afternoon, head by train to Interlaken to see its old timber houses and admire the gorgeous surroundings of alpine lakes and towering mountains. Board a cogwheel train and continue to Jungfraujoch, the highest train station in Europe. After exploring its picturesque winter landscape, return to Interlaken and ride the Brunig Express back to Zurich, passing by three breathtaking lakes as your farewell views of the Alps.

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