Fly to Zurich and transfer by coach into the heart of Central Switzerland and your hotel in Sachseln. Rest and relax after the journey, and perhaps take a stroll through the village.
This morning we'll head around the shores of Lake Lucerne, following the ancient shoreline road to Lucerne. Along the way you'll see the tiny Tellskappelle - which commemorates the life of Switzerland's beloved Wilhelm Tell - and once in Lucerne you'll be able to explore the old town, cross 'Chapel Bridge' and join an optional excursion including a trip to the summit of Mount Rigi on Europe's oldest cogwheel railway.
Soak up the views, and perhaps stop for refreshments at the mountaintop cafe, before we return to Sachseln.
Today's highlight is our included trip on the world-famous 'Glacier Express'. Boarding the train in the mountain town of Andermatt, you'll head up the Oberalp Pass and across the 'roof of Europe' to Chur. Enjoy an unforgettable journey through a landscape of snow-clad alpine meadows, and perhaps a pre-booked lunch on board, then disembark in Chur to explore its ancient old town and visit its 13th-century cathedral.
Today's final optional full-day tour takes us through the stunning countryside of the Bernese Oberland to the bustling resort of Interlaken, set below the distant, snow-capped Jungfrau and 'between the lakes' of Thun and Brienz. Explore the busting streets and lakeside parks, and indulge in some souvenir shopping on this, your final full day.
Transfer, through the spectacular Swiss scenery, back to Zurich airport, and check in for your flight home.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour 20 minutes.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
*Low deposit of £50 per person applies to new bookings made between 20th January and 31st January 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected air-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.
