Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Leysin Driver’s Day Off
We will enjoy a day at leisure in Leysin. We may choose to relax at our hotel, making use of its extensive leisure facilities or make our way to the Berneuse Cable Car, which takes us up to the summit of the mountain for perfect views of Geneva and Mont Blanc on a clear day.

Day 3 Vevey & Montreux
Today we make our way to Vevey which holds its weekly market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We can browse the stalls and enjoy lunch before embarking on a scenic paddle steamer cruise from Vevey to the elegant town of Montreux, made famous by its yearly jazz festival and its former famous resident, Freddie Mercury. After spending time here, we make our way back to the hotel by coach.

Day 4 Swiss Chocolate Train
This morning we will embark on an epic cheese and chocolate journey! Our full day excursion on the magnificent Chocolate Train starts from Montreux from where we embark upon a first class journey through the scenic countryside to the village of Gruyères. Here, we will discover how Gruyère cheese is made with a demonstration at La Maison du Gruyère cheese dairy. Afterwards, we will have time to spend in the village before we travel by bus to Broc, home of the Cailler-Nestlé chocolate factory. We will find out all about the chocolates made here, with tastings of course! After enjoying the chocolates, we board our train once more, at Broc, for our return journey back to Montreux, arriving late afternoon.

Day 5 Glacier 3000
After breakfast, we head to Col du Pillon to embark on a cable car journey to Scex Rouge, known as Glacier 3000. We have a stunning panorama of no fewer than 24 snow-capped 4000m giants including the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Matterhorn, and even Mont Blanc in the distance! We have time here to take in the magnificent views, enjoy lunch in the panorama restaurant (not included) and for those feeling more adventurous why not embark on a ride on the Snow Bus!

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
