    Grand Rail Tours

    Our Swiss rail programme features a collection of four grand rail touring holidays, each of which has been handcrafted to reflect a specific aspect of Switzerland. Encompassing the mountains and valleys of the Alps, the well-known and little-known lakes, historic Old Towns and modern cosmopolitan cities, and some of the best-loved and most iconic railway journeys in Europe, these touring holidays provide both cultural breadth and natural beauty, tied together with a selection of our luxury hotels.

    The Grand Heart of Switzerland Mountains Rail Tour
    Focusing on Switzerland’s prominent cities and the mountains that stand above them, this tour takes you from Zurich, down past Lucerne and Rigi, Queen of the Mountains, through the stunning valleys of the Saanenland, to Montreux opposite the French Alps, Zermatt beneath the Matterhorn, Lugano beside Monte Tamaro, and through the northern Italian valleys, to St Moritz beside the Suvretta Mountain. This eleven night tour captures many of Switzerland’s most memorable and sublime vistas.

    The Grand Lakes of Switzerland Rail Tour

    From Geneva through to Zurich, trace the pattern of lakes that divide Switzerland into its 26 cantons and mark some of its most important cities on this eleven night tour. Begin with Lake Geneva, lined with the historic and renowned towns of Geneva, Lausanne, and Montreux, before moving on, via Lake Thun, Lake Brienz, and Interlaken, to Lake Lucerne, home to the legend of Wilhelm Tell. Journey further south into Ticino past Lake Maggiore to Lake Lugano, before heading on to the smaller, quainter lakes surrounding St Moritz. This tour ends with crisp and picturesque Lake Zurich.

    The Grand Romantic Swiss Rail Tour
    This eight night touring holiday has been carefully built around our own experience of Switzerland’s most romantic sights, including, of course, the Centovalli Express, recognised as one of the most romantic rail journeys in Europe. Begin and end in Geneva; travel through Lausanne and the Lavaux Vineyards, Zermatt and the breath-taking Matterhorn, Domodossola and Locarno on the Centovalli Express, Mediterranean-esque Ticino and Lake Lucerne on the Wilhelm Tell Express, and finally peaceful and idyllic Gstaad in the Saanenland.

Journey from lakeside Lausanne, to Zermatt and St Moritz via the thrilling Glacier Express, to Lugano on the border with Italy, to historic and cultural Lucerne on one of Switzerland’s most exceptional lakes, to Grindelwald tucked away in the Bernese Oberland, to Gstaad on the Alpine meadows, and to Montreux, home of the fairy-tale Chillon Castle.
