Glacier Express

Also known as the 'Orient Express of the Alps', the Glacier Express is famed for being the slowest 'express' train in the world. Linking Brig with Chur, the train makes its way across literally hundreds of bridges and viaducts, as well as over 90 tunnels, along its route.

One of the highlights of the journey comes when the train climbs the 6,669 foot Oberalp Pass. It uses cogwheels in the steepest places. You can see green valleys, picturesque villages, the high Alpine lake on the Oberalp Pass, and the Matterhorn. The Glacier Express train made its first journey in 1930. Services were suspended from 1943-1946 due to the Second World War. The line only ran seasonally due to the adverse weather conditions, until the completion of the Furka Tunnel in 1982. Since then, it has run year-round excursions.

“Great holiday and a lovely tour guide Ken that did an amazing job making sure we was on and off our train’s. Hotels was good and food and packed lunches was very welcoming. Downside was we thought 45 people was to many in one group when some train times was only a few minutes from one train to the next one leaving. Apart from that a totally enjoyable holiday with fabulous views and amazing places.

Glacier Express All Inclusive at Christmas

“Lovely places to see/be in, but too much time pressure and stress during travel. Took days to recover. Better for the young/fit. Everyone was very disappointed as the actual Glacier express we were on, being I believe a special extra train due to demand, offered no buffet or refreshments at all, all the way. Much cynical laughter at the lavish videos.
