About the tour

Some landscapes lend themselves to adventure and exploration, and those of Switzerland fit the bill to a T. The gorgeous Swiss Alps and their rolling foothills lead to glacier-fed lakes and sweeping valleys where picturesque towns and villages and gleaming metropolises make their mark on the land. One of the best ways to explore Switzerland's varied landscapes is by train. Luckily, train are plentiful and notable routes come standard.

This Swiss rail spectacular explores some of the best railways in Europe. Your tour begins in Basel, where you join the opulent private rail carriages of the Prestige Continental Express for the journey toward St. Moritz. And this is just the beginning. Watch amazing alpine scenes unfold as you travel to cities like Tirano and Lake Como in Italy and Gletsch, Zermatt, Brig, Interlaken, and Zurich in Switzerland aboard magnificent railways large and small. From the Glacier & Bernina Pullman Express to the Furka Steam Railway, the Glacier Express, the Jungfrau Railway, and rack railways, including Schynige-Platte Bahn Rack Railway and the Brienzer-Rothorn Steam Rack Railway, this thoughtfully composed trip is rife with memorable rail journeys.

An exciting adventure! Great tour director who was able to adjust things we had planned due to weather conditions.

This was a very fun trip!!! We felt lucky to get to see the Northern Lights which was the main reason for going. Some of our accomodations weren't quite up to par, but our tour guide was great!

Excellent experience (albeit cold). Visited several locations in Norway and Sweden, and of course always on the lookout for the Northern LIghts....and we saw them!! Other excursions (Sami village and dogsledding) added to the adventure.

The hotel on Lofoten Island was terrible and needs to be replaced on future tours
