Celebrate New Year's Day on the famous Bernina Express to Tirano in Italy.

St Moritz

New Year's Day in St Moritz

Today, travel to the glamorous winter resort of St Moritz on the Albula line, an extension of the Bernina Express. You are free to explore the town. Still bedecked in its festive finery, the charming Christmas light displays and Christmas decorations line the streets, and many of the locals are out to enjoy the final day of the year.

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 Tiefencastel
Tiefencastel

At leisure in Tiefencastel

Today is free for you to explore the charming Tiefencastel, a traditional Swiss town with delightful cafés, shops and bustling squares. It's flanked by soaring Alpine peaks.

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 Chur
Chur

Chur and the Arosa Line

Take the train to Chur, which is Switzerland's oldest settlement. With a history dating back to 3900BC, this small and beautiful town has a wealth of history waiting to be explored. Here you have time to explore Chur's authentic Old Town, grouped around Martinsplatz with the arcaded Rathaus - Town Hall - dating from 1464. Another sight well worth seeing is the incredible 12th century cathedral, which combines Gothic and Romanesque architecture to make a truly striking building.

After, board the stunning Arosa Line, which climbs 1km from Chur to the charming lakeside resort of Arosa, passing by some lovely historical landmarks, including the Obertor town gate and the famous Maltese Tower. Although the track starts fairly flat, the line soon begins to ascent steeply, eventually overcoming a height difference of 3,280 feet to reach our destination. The scenery surrounding the line becomes more wild and dramatic, as you take in the rocky scenery of the Graubunden canton, before skirting the crystal clear waters of Obersee. Our time in Arosa is at leisure before our return journey.

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 The Glacier Express
The Glacier Express

The Glacier Express

Leaving Tiefencastel, travel on the iconic Glacier Express through the mountains to your destination in Andermatt.
