Our selection of iconic Swiss rail touring holidays has been built around famous scenic journeys such as the Glacier and Bernina Express. Reaching out into each corner of Switzerland, these journeys encompass every aspect of beautiful Switzerland, from the icy snow-capped Alps of the Bernese Oberland, the sublime lakes and valleys of Geneva and Lucerne, to the Mediterranean climate of Ticino on the Italian border. All of this and more can be witnessed in the panoramic coaches of these prestigious and memorable trains.Glacier Express HolidayFor a tour through the stunning Swiss mountains, through from Zermatt in the Valais High Alps to the equally popular winter sports resort of St Moritz in Grisons, we would recommend taking the Glacier Express and staying at Zermatt and St Moritz at either end respectively. Your entry into Geneva and departure from Zurich allows you time to soak up the cultural highlights of two of Switzerland’s most popular cities.Or download a PDF itinerary here.Bernina Express HolidayOur Bernina Express Holiday takes you in a diverse and captivating triangle, from Zurich, through to St Moritz, across northern Italy to Lugano, and finally back again to Zurich, staying at least one night in each. This touring holiday therefore encompasses historic city streets, phenomenal lakeside views, the winding valleys between the Alps, and the colourful waterfront towns of southern Switzerland.Or download a PDF itinerary here. GoldenPass HolidayVenture into west and central Switzerland with the GoldenPass Line Holiday, which begins in Geneva, continues on to Lausanne for an elegant night beside the water, then Montreux and on to Gstaad. Here, you will spend four nights in Schoenried, exploring the walking paths that vein the surrounding hills, and taking in the charming ambience of Gstaad’s attractive central promenade; then, continue north to Zurich.Or download a PDF itinerary here.Wilhelm Tell Express HolidayThe Wilhelm Tell Express Holiday offers something truly unique and a road considerably less well-travelled. Following in the footsteps of the Swiss National Hero of Liberty, this tour begins by boat in Lucerne, taking you past the most important sites mentioned in Friedrich Schiller’s poem ‘Wilhelm Tell.’ The train then takes you on via the Gotthard Pass to Lugano, for two final nights.

The holiday touring itinerary begins, however, with one night in Zurich before you journey south to enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Hundred Valleys and what is reputedly one of the most romantic train journeys in Europe. On your return to Zurich, stop off in Brig and spend one night in the Swiss capital, Bern.Or download a PDF itinerary here.All of these iconic rail journeys can be adapted to your particular requirements, with three, four, and five star hotel options in each of the overnight destinations.
