Scenic rail holidays - a wonderful way to see Switzerland

Enjoy a fantastic two or multi centre holiday, with a scenic rail journey connecting your resorts. We highly recommend the Glacier Express from Zermatt or Brig, which can take you across the Alps to St. Moritz. From Brig you can also connect to Lötschberg Regio Express for the Lake Thun resorts, or the Centovalli Line which takes you down to the Ticino region.

If you prefer to base yourself in one resort, there are many scenic journeys to be enjoyed locally such as Gornergrat and the Furka Line steam train. We can tailor make any itinerary you choose, please contact us for details on 0800 619 1200.

Walking in the region

The Valais region boasts over 8,000km of signposted hiking paths, taking in glorious mountain views, lush alpine meadows, dense larch forests. You may spot marmots, ibex and mountain goats as well as delicate alpine flowers. Walks around the high mountain lakes offer level paths and spectacular views. Alternatively, you could head down to the wide Rhone Valley or try a vineyard trail. One of the most rewarding areas for walking is around the Aletsch Glacier, with perfect viewing points over the 'river' of ice.
