Spring was the ideal time to ride the Glacier Express—Lots of snow in the mountains and everything sparkles. - T.Y. - Indiana

Remember, space at favorite hotels often disappears quickly, so the earlier you get your reservations in, the better. For prime summer dates, try to firm up your plans by January or February for 2018 travel. 

Travel Switzerland by Rail in Luxury

There are certainly faster ways to get from St. Moritz to Zermatt, but none more scenic or more memorable than the Glacier Express, “the slowest express train in the world.” From the glamorous resort of St Moritz, you will travel through narrow valleys, tight curves, 91 tunnels, and across 291 bridges. The route crosses the Oberalp Pass at 2,033 meters and descends into Valais before a cogwheel climb into the village of Zermatt, which sits at the base of the Matterhorn.

First Class All the Way

You’ll travel in first class comfort in panoramic cars that are air-cushioned and air-conditioned. The interiors are spacious and comfortable with an on-board information system available in six languages. Trains run daily during summer and winter seasons. This tour can also be offered in reverse (Zermatt to St. Moritz). This is a self-guided tour.
