On leaving Zweisimmen we begin our steady ascent to the resort of Saanenmöser and then continue to the summit of the line, the Saanenmöser Pass, at 4,183 feet (1,275m). From here we descend to the fashionable skiing and summer resort of Gstaad and travel through the pretty, chalet-filled villages of the Saanenland region.

As we leave the German-speaking Saanenland, you will notice that the village names become French. One of the first villages we come to is Châteaux d'Oex - a popular destination for hot air ballooning. We continue through the Pays d'Enhaut valley to the village of Montbovon before ascending through wild, Alpine scenery towards the Jaman Tunnel.

During our journey through the tunnel, the longest on the line, we leave the Alps behind and emerge to a more Mediterranean landscape. From here the train encounters the steepest gradient on the line - a descent of 1 in 37 - through woodland to the winter resort of Les Avants. The GoldenPass Line reaches Lake Geneva, offering magnificent views of the lake's glittering waters and the surrounding peaks. The train makes its final descent through vineyards, twisting and turning through a series of impressive horseshoe curves to our final destination, lively Montreux.

“Our tour manager, Oliver Treacy was excellent and accommodating to our travelers. Would like to have him again on a trip. It would have been helpful for him to use the radios when speaking so those with difficulty could hear easily. I would have liked more local specialists and staying in each place x2 nights to see the city we were in. It was wonderful NOT to feel rushed in the mornings with bags and early leaving times as we have experienced on coach tours.
