Day 1

We depart local pick ups and travel to Dover/Folkestone for the crossing to Calais and continue to our overnight half board accommodation.

Day 2

FROM OVERNIGHT HOTEL TO FLIMS
Continue to our resort and enjoy a welcome drink on arrival, followed by dinner.

Days 3

BERNINA EXPRESS
We travel by coach to Tirano in Italy from where we board a regional train on the route of the Bernina Express to St Moritz. It is an unforgettable ride across the Bernina Pass and rising to a height of 2,250 meters, it is the highest mountain railway in the Alps. We disembark in St Moritz where you will have some free time to explore this very elegant resort at leisure.

Day 4

CHUR & THE AROSA TRAIN
Excursion to Chur, the oldest city in Switzerland boasting many historic buildings and winding streets. Here we board the train to Arosa, which first gently trundles through Chur as though it was a tram before it changes to a mountain railway on the outskirts of the city. The train climbs over a thousand meters in just 26 kilometers to the famous resort of Arosa. We get to appreciate the scenery once more as we return to Chur by train.

Day 5

GLACIER EXPRESS
Another highlight of the tour today for many as we follow part of the route of the Glacier Express, arguably Switzerland’s most famous train. Departing from Andermatt this journey takes us past legendary mountain peaks and unspoilt valleys. We’ll change trains at Disentis and continue on to Chur.

Day 6

FLIMS TO OVERNIGHT HOTEL
We depart Flims and continue to our overnight dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation.

Day 7

We continue our journey to Calais for the crossing back to the UK and complete the journey home.
