Great Rail Journeys of Switzerland: The Glacier Express and the Golden Pass

8 days

From £3,045 £3,345

Summary

A trip on the Glacier Express is on the bucket-list of many, thanks to the unbeatable combination of spectacular scenery and effortless Swiss rail travel. Don’t be misled by the term ‘Express’ though: while there are no intermediate stops this is in fact a very leisurely journey averaging around 24mph, allowing plenty of time to enjoy the magnificent Alpine scenery through the panoramic windows and skylights on the train.

There is a host of other scenic rail journeys to enjoy, beginning with an eco-friendly ride to the summit of the Gonergrat, one of the finest mountain-top panoramas in the world. A combination of train and cable car takes us to another mountain summit, the Schilthorn, which will be instantly recognisable from the Bond classic On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Another culture reference follows as we take the Golden Pass panoramic train to Montrreux on Lake Geneva – the inspiration for Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water. Further highlights here in the French-speaking part of Switzerland include a ride in original Belle Epoque carriages to the top of the Rochers de Naye and a relaxing cruise on Lake Geneva.
