The Glacier Express

Our twin centre tour includes two nights in the prestigious resort of Zermatt and three nights in chic Klosters, connected by one of Switzerland’s best scenic train rides across the Alps: The Glacier Express!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Zermatt Driver’s Day Off
Today, we spend time at leisure in our spectacular resort. The day is free to explore the pedestrianised town, with its chic shops, leading to the Matterhorn Museum. This museum provides a wonderful insight into the history of both the mountain and the village itself and is an excellent introduction to the area. After a short visit, why not experience the Matterhorn first-hand by boarding the train to the summit of the Gornergrat at over 3,000m above sea level?

Day 3 Glacier Express
After breakfast, we depart our hotel and walk the short distance to Zermatt Train Station and take the Glacier Express for our 51?2 hour journey on the slowest express train in the world! We will travel through snow-capped mountains, enjoy stunning views of glaciers, sparkling streams and waterfalls as we make our way towards Chur, where our coach (and luggage!) will meet us this afternoon to transfer us to the Silvretta Park Hotel, our home for the next 3 nights.

Day 4 Davos & Klosters Driver’s Day Off
If a further driver’s day off is required, we can explore the local areas of Davos and famous Klosters, known as a playground for princes, using the local cable cars and trains, which are free for us to use courtesy of our inclusive Davos/Klosters Card, allowing convenient and easy access to the surrounding mountains.

Day 5 Chur & St Moritz
This morning, we board our coach for the journey to the oldest city in Switzerland, Chur. The centre of the Old Town is traffic-free and is perfect for exploring the many cafés and shops nestling within this 5,000 year old settlement. Our route then takes us to the chic alpine resort of St Moritz famous for its excellent sunshine record and high-class boutiques. We enjoy free time here for lunch and to explore the lakeside, before re-boarding our coach for the return trip to Klosters via the magnificent Fluela Pass.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
