About the tour
Spend a relaxing week in the outstanding Bernese Oberland, enjoying all inclusive hospitality and fantastic excursions to Interlaken and the surrounding mountains, including Jungfraujoch and the summit of Harder Kulm.
You start your tour from London St Pancras International, where you are met by your Tour Manager at Rail Discoveries' dedicated Departure Office. You travel to Paris, before continuing on by TGV to Strasbourg, where you spend the night. Tonight you enjoy dinner in a local restaurant. On Day 2, make the most of a free morning in Strasbourg before continuing your journey by rail into the heart of the Swiss Alps to charming Wilderswil today.
This beautiful village is just minutes from Interlaken, and enjoys staggering views over the valley and of the mountains beyond. Wilderswil is ideally located as a base to explore the Lauterbrunnen Valley and the towering peaks that enclose it. On arrival, you check in for a six night stay at the 3* Hotel Alpenblick. Located in the centre of this quaint village, this delightful family-run hotel has a charming, rustic feel, whilst providing modern amenities and comforts for a pleasant stay.

Mr S Humphreys
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.
Wonderful scenery, very well organised, great tours and a brilliant holiday.
Mrs J McIntosh
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.
Mr E Aldridge
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.
Well planned and very well organized We enjoyed every moment of the whole holiday
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.
