Scenic rail journeys are the best way to experience Switzerland. The beauty of the Swiss Alps, snow-capped mountain peaks, majestic glaciers, gushing waterfalls and breath-taking views over picturesque valleys and deep blue lakes – all viewed from the comfort of your seat.

Glacier Express, Bernina Express or GoldenPass Line to name just a few of Switzerland’s iconic train routes. A visit to the country is not complete without travelling across the Alps on one of those trains, enjoying the best Switzerland has to offer. Most of our rail holidays are based on one or the other or possibly all of these scenic routes.
