2 Bucket List Experiences in One Epic Rail Journey
Combine two of the most scenic train routes in the world on this unforgettable rail journey through the Swiss Alps!
Your journey begins with two days in beautiful Interlaken. Take time to explore the city and the surrounding regions, perhaps taking a trip up the famous Jungfrau Mountain and traveling to one of the highest train stations in Europe. Ascend through tunnels made of solid Alpine rock, before arriving at the Jungfraujoch. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Vosges Mountains in France and the Black Forest in Germany.
From Interlaken, travel to Brig on board the red carriages of the Glacier Express, and take a panoramic tour of the Swiss Alps from Brig through to Chur. Travel in comfort aboard what is probably the world’s slowest express train, through the unspoiled beauty of mountain forests, peaceful Alpine meadows and lush valleys.
Spend the night in scenic Chur, and the next morning, board the equally spectacular Bernina Express to Tirano via St. Moritz. The train crosses the Alps and offers breathtaking views from the panoramic carriages. Ride over dramatic viaducts, through sheer rock gorges and switch-back tunnels, alongside mountain streams and impressive glaciers. Be sure not to miss the impressive Landwasser Viaduct, which will appear on your right just before Filisur, an hour outside of St. Moritz. The train climbs up the 7,391 ft high Bernina Pass and the trip is expertly narrated by knowledgeable guides. This entire area is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The line finishes in the Italian border town of Tirano and, after time for a bite to eat, board the train back to Chur for another relaxing night.
