Itinerary

Day One

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.

Day Two

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.

Day Three

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.

Day Four

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.

Day Five

Transfer, through the spectacular Swiss scenery, back to Zurich airport, and check in for your flight home.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from 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.

Disabled access

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.
