What’s included


Day 1 - London to Strasbourg

Meeting at London St Pancras, your holiday starts here as we depart on the Eurostar to Paris, continuing on the TGV to Strasbourg where you spend the night. This charming French city is a great place to pause your journey. With a captivating blend of German and French influences, the quaint Old Town here is a medieval wonder, dominated by the spectacular Notre Dame Cathedral with its famous astronomical clock. At Christmas, the city comes alive with cheerful lights and a fantastic traditional Christmas market - one of the oldest and most iconic in the whole of Europe.

  • Dinner
Day 2 - Strasbourg to Wilderswil

Make the most of a free morning to explore beautiful Strasbourg. 'La Petite France' is a wonderful location for a stroll. This historic quarter of Strasbourg is divided by the River Ill and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988, largely due to its abundance of half-timbered buildings.

In the afternoon, you continue by rail to Switzerland, receiving a warm welcome at your family-run hotel in Wilderswil, where you stay for five nights. On the journey, the scenery increases in beauty in Switzerland as snowy mountains begin to encircle the route, while the serene Lake Thun shimmers as you pass Spiez and its fairytale lakeside castle, before arriving in the pretty Alpine village of Wilderswill. Occupying an idyllic spot on the Lütschine river at the heart of the Jungfrau region, Wilderswil is a scenic base from which to enjoy the festive season.

  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 - The Jungfrau Express

Enjoy one of your holiday highlights today, a return journey to the 'top of Europe', Jungfraujoch. The first leg of your spectacular rail adventure takes you on the Bernese Oberland Railway, winding through beautiful Alpine scenery on a line that dates back to 1890. In Kleine Scheidegg, you meet up with the Jungfrau Express for your sensational journey to the top of the mountain.

Climbing steeply through a tunnel deep inside the Eiger and the Mönch mountains, you emerge just below the summit of the Jungfrau. Nestled between the peaks of the Jungfrau and Mönch, the Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in the continent at over 11,000 feet above sea level. The views here are awe-inspiring, and you'll find yourself immersed in a snow-globe world of wintry beauty.

There's some free time here. Head to the Sphinx observatory for the best views; reached by a lift and nestled a further 384 feet up the mountain, you'll be treated to panoramic vistas of endless mountain peaks and the immense Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps. You could also head to Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven for an insight into the history and making of Swiss chocolate, or visit the Ice Palace to admire the elaborate sculptures. The Alpine Sensation exhibition is also well worth a visit. Step onto a moving walkway and step back in time, as enchanting projected images and music tell of the history of tourism in the Alps and pay tribute to the miners who built the Jungfrau Railway over 100 years ago.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Interlaken

Interlaken is your destination today. The capital of the beautiful Bernese Oberland is one of the most popular regions in the Swiss Alps, and it's easy to see why. Its scenery showcases all the hallmarks of a picture-postcard Swiss location, with its snow-capped peaks, rolling hillsides, rugged rocky outcrops, and pristine glaciers. The region provides a year-round playground for climbers, walkers, and skiers.

Interlaken is set in the very heart of this captivating landscape, wedged between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun and surrounded by three peaks: the Jungfrau, the Eiger, and the Mönch mountains. Because of its location Interlaken is a great starting point for any adventure in the Bernese Oberland. You're free to explore at your own pace using your included travel card. Perhaps take a cruise across Lake Thun and experience the spectacular winter scenes.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - Grindelwald

Travel by train to Grindelwald, a pretty Alpine village tucked away at the foot of the north face of the Eiger. Grindelwald is one of Europe's oldest mountain resorts. In the 1920s, as the popularity of skiing rose, so in turn did Grindelwald's. The village itself has an abundance of Swiss charm and is surrounded by open skiing fields in winter. You can explore the area at your own pace before returning to Wilderswil ahead of dinner.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - At leisure

Today, you are free to discover the area further. Perhaps cross the Brünig Pass to Lucerne and discover this pretty lakeside city. Lucerne exudes class, culture, and history, made up by the beautifully preserved medieval architecture which dots the centre of town. Well worth a visit is the 14th-century Chapel Bridge with the impressive Water Tower which rises up from the lake. Both of these are regarded as the most photographed sights in all of Switzerland.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 – Wilderswil & London

Your holiday ends today, as you board a train to Lausanne. From here you travel by TGV to Paris, where you connect with the Eurostar back to London St Pancras.

  • Breakfast, Lunch

It was a wonderful holiday, well organised but there were times when we had to rush to catch some of the trains. Long walk to the hotel. Tour manager was excellent. It would have been nice to know the cost of the extra trips & availability before leaving England

The walk between the rail stations in Paris was awful. Big crowd hard to keep together, cobbles hard to pull case over, poor area to walk through in terms of safety. Getting vegetarian meals in the hotel was hard although I stated this when booking. I felt my room and particularly the en-suite were small compared with others even having paid a single occupancy supplement.

This holiday was absolutely fabulous and so well organised with lovely hotels especially the Hotel Alpenblick in Wilderswill. The area and mountains around Interlaken were beautiful. I would recommend this holiday to anyone.

A well organised trip to the top of the spectacular Jungfrau. We stayed in a traditional Swiss chalet style hotel. Couldn't fault the hospitality. Our tour manager made sure the trip ran smoothly and was on hand for advice if needed. Finally we went with a great group of people. It all added up to fabulous week away.
