Itinerary

Day 1 - London & Strasbourg

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

Includes
  • Dinner
Day 2 - Wilderswil

Make the most of a free morning to see the sights of Strasbourg before taking the train to Wilderswil, in the heart of the stunning Swiss Alps. This beautiful village has wonderful 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, the history, culture and beauty of Wilderswil has placed it 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, surrounded by the crisp peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. A historic town at heart, Interlaken's compact size means its medieval monastery, castle and ancient town hall square are delightful to discover on foot. If you enjoy hiking, plenty of Alpine walks start here. Or, you could join the funicular railway to the top of Harder Kulm, for stunning views across 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 fabulous mountainous landscape is revealed. You have free time to drink in the views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau from the panoramic terrace, or maybe visit the Botanical Alpine Garden, where colourful plants fill the air with 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. Take in the surrounding scenery and snow-dusted mountains on a walk around the town, watch the world go by while sampling traditional Swiss cuisine in a charming local café, or use your Swiss Travel Card to visit the surrounding towns and villages. Maybe visit Mürren, a quaint village at the foot of the peak of the Schilthorn. Or make the scenic journey over the Brünig Pass to Lucerne, Switzerland's most populated city, 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 awe-inspiring 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 crafted from the nearby glacier. The Alpine Sensation exhibition uses projected images and music to pay tribute to the miners who built the Jungfrau Railway over 100 years ago.

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

Take the train to Interlaken, for a scenic cruise on Lake Brienz. From the boat, enjoy an alternative view of the quaint towns and villages along the lake's shores.
