What’s included

Itinerary

Day 1 - London & Strasbourg or Mulhouse

Meet at London St Pancras for the journey on the Eurostar to Paris. Change trains and continue by rail to either Strasbourg or Mulhouse for a night in a local hotel, enjoying dinner together in a local restaurant.

Includes
  • Dinner
Day 2 - Wilderswil

Make the most of a free morning to see the sights in either Strasbourg or Mulhouse before taking the train to Wilderswil, found in the heart of the striking Swiss Alps. This beautiful village boasts staggering views over the valley and the mountains beyond, placing you in the heart of Switzerland's stunning scenery. The epitome of a traditional Swiss alpine village, thanks to the history, culture and beauty of Wilderswil the village is listed on the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. You enjoy a six-night all-inclusive stay here.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 - Interlaken

Today takes you to nearby Interlaken, an attractive town set between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun and surrounded by the crisp peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. A historic town at heart, Interlaken's compact size means that highlights such as its medieval monastery, castle and ancient town hall square are delightful to discover on foot. If you want to stretch your legs, there are plenty of Alpine walks that start here. Or, you could join the funicular railway to the top of Harder Kulm, for stunning views across the magnificent landscapes of the Bernese Oberland.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Schynige Platte

Take a scenic journey on the Schynige Platte Railway. With restored 19th-century carriages hauled by a vintage electric locomotive, the railway has a nostalgic Belle Epoque feel. As you journey along the stretch of track, there's a clear view of glittering Lake Thun and the pretty towns and villages clustered around it, as well as the rugged mountains that rise from the water's edge. As you reach the summit station of Schynige Platte, the true splendour of the mountainous landscape is revealed. There's free time here to drink in the views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau from the panoramic terrace, or you could visit the Botanical Alpine Garden, where brightly coloured plants fill the air with their sweet scents.

The Schynige Platte opens in late May. If you travel on an earlier departure, you'll visit Lucerne, a masterpiece of historic architecture whose 13th-century Chapel Bridge and fresco-adorned Old Town are a pleasure to explore.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - Wilderswil

Enjoy a relaxed day to unwind in Wilderswill. You could take in the surrounding scenery and snow-dusted mountains on a walk around the town, watch the world go while sampling traditional Swiss cuisine in from a charming local café or use your Swiss Travel Card to visit the surrounding towns and villages. Perhaps visit Mürren, a quaint village at the foot of the peak of the Schilthorn. Or make the scenic journey over the Brünig Pass to the impressive city of Lucerne, Switzerland's most populated city, sat on the shores of Lake Lucerne.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - The Jungfrau Express

Experience a journey on the unforgettable Jungfrau Express. Begin on the Bernese Oberland Railway, winding through the countryside to Kleine Scheidegg. Here, join the Jungfrau Railway for the journey to 'the top of Europe', the continent's highest railway station. Climb through a tunnel inside the Eiger and Mönch mountains before arriving at Jungfraujoch, where you're greeted by a snow-globe world of wintry beauty, no matter the season. There's free time here; admire the scenery from the Sphinx observatory, head to Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven for a look at the making of Swiss Chocolate, or visit the Ice Palace, filled with elaborate sculptures. The Alpine Sensation, an exhibition that uses projected images and music to pay tribute to the miners who built the Jungfrau Railway over 100 years ago, is also worth a visit.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 - Lake Brienz

Take the train to Interlaken, a resort town situated between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. From here, you embark upon a scenic cruise on Lake Brienz. From the boat, you're treated to an alternative view of the quaint towns and villages that dot the lake's shores. Admire the remarkable contrast between the pure Alpine waters and the beautiful untouched countryside, dense pine forests and green slops of the mountains that border the lake, before returning to your hotel.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8 - London

Your holiday ends as you take the train to Geneva and board the high-speed service to Paris. Here, you join the Eurostar to London St Pancras.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch

we found the hotel, tour manager, fellow tourists, trips, etc all excellent ( also the weather). We like staying in one centre and going on trips from that location.

The only reason it is 4 not 5 is the journey. Quite stressful with all the changes, and coming back would have been worse as there was no break. I in fact paid and flew home on the Sat. as iI had been slightly unwell mid week, and the thought of the journey filled me with horror. In fact I was fine. Would have been nice to know journey details before we booked.

Tim White was our Tour Manager and was brilliant especially managing 38 peopie. The trip was well organised and we were fortunate with the weather. The biggest disappointment was the vegetarian food at the. alpenblick Hotel, a Michelin star restaurant.

from meeting our rep Deborah at St Pancreas at the beginning of our holiday to saying goodby at St Pancreas we had an amazing holiday. Never been on this kind of holiday and it exceeded our expectations in all respects. Everything was so smooth, reserved railway carriages we did not have to worry about anything. We loved it so much going in December on the christmas markets journey.

Whilst the holiday itself was extremely enjoyable, the travelling to and from the final destination was very tiring, particularly in view of the large number of changes with heavy luggage in tow. I think in hindsight it would have been preferable to have flown to Basel and start the journey from there rather than use the Eurostar.
