Itinerary:

Days One and Two - Davos

You'll start your Swiss rail adventure in style today when your VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home and takes you to the airport for your flight to Zurich. Upon arrival, you'll transfer to the high Swiss Alps, and the resort town of Davos, and the Steigenberger Grand Hotel Belvedere, which will be your home for the next seven nights. Enjoy a welcome drink and the chance to meet your fellow travellers, and a welcome dinner at the hotel. On day two, you'll be introduced to the highest city in Europe with a guided walking tour of Davos in the morning. This charming town offers plenty to see and do year-round, with free access to gondolas, cable cars, and trains in the summer, providing access to the higher mountain trails, avoiding the long walk up, and there are countless well-marked hiking trails close to town. You'll have the afternoon at leisure to explore as you please, or perhaps simply relax.

Included meals: One breakfast (on day two) and one dinner (on day one)

Day Three - Tirano and St Moritz

Today you'll enjoy a superb train journey aboard the legendary Bernina Express, travelling south across the border into Italy. The route passes through 55 tunnels and crosses 196 bridges, and the famous circular viaduct of Brusio. Climbing the 2,253-metre Bernina Pass and, after crossing into Italy, passing through the Valtellina Valley, this route offers some spectacular views, too. Once you've arrived at your destination, the charming town of Tirano, you'll have some time at leisure to explore the old town centre, before hopping back onboard the Bernina Express, continuing your journey back into Switzerland and onwards to the luxurious Swiss resort of St Moritz, which has hosted the Winter Olympics twice, and is home to the Cresta Run,a world-championship bobsled run made of natural ice. You'll have some more free time to explore this famous resort, which began life as a spa town.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day Four - Davos

Enjoy a leisurely day today to enjoy your surroundings, or perhaps make use of your included pass, which enables you to take cable-car rides up onto the Jakobshorn, Parsenn, or Rinerhorn, or head off on foot, by bike, or even a romantic horse-drawn carriage up the romantic side valleys of Sertig, Dischma or Flüela, and enjoy an included dinner at the hotel tonight.

Included meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Day Five - Andermatt

You can anticipate a day filled with stunning views and beautiful landscapes today, as you join the famous Glacier Express, the 'slowest express train in the world', for a journey through the high Alps in the heart of Switzerland to the traditional Swiss resort of Andermatt. As you make your journey, take in beautiful panoramic views of the Alpine landscape, from the depths of the Rhine Gorge up to the 2033metre-high Oberalp Pass. The Glacier Express has borne witness to some of the proudest pioneering feats of Alpine railway engineering for over 80 years, and features no fewer than 91 tunnels and 291 bridges; it's no wonder it's such an iconic rail journey!

Included meals: Breakfast

Day Six - Vaduz, Lake Constance, and Lindau

Today's full-day excursion will first take you to Vaduz, the capital of tiny, neighbouring Liechtenstein, where you can take in wonderful views of the Rhine and the castle, which dates back to the 12th century and is a residence of the royal family of Liechtenstein. You'll soon be back across the Swiss border as you journey onwards to Lake Constance, crossing the border again into Germany to head to the charming Bavarian lakeside town of Lindau, where you'll enjoy a cruise across the lake, before heading back to Switzerland and Davos.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day Seven - Davos

Enjoy a final day of leisure, where you can unwind and enjoy the scenery some more, or visit Davos Lake, or even Europe's highest brewery, the Monstein Brewery. This evening, join your fellow guests for dinner tonight, sharing memories of your trip together.

Included meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Day Eight - UK

Heading home today, you'll transfer to Zurich for your return flight to the UK, where upon arrival, your VIP Home Pick-Up vehicle will be waiting to take you home, and your tour concludes.
