A pioneering project, the line traverses the steep valleys with an array of spiralling loops - offering incredible views of the beautiful scenery. Later we arrive in St Moritz, a town synonymous with glamour.

  • Days 4-5 - Bernina Express to Tirano

    Bernina Express

    We enjoy an excursion on the Bernina Express today, one of the highlights of this tour. The line winds its way over steep ravines and past wild waterfalls as we pass through the Engadine Valley, and cross over the distinctive Brusio Viaduct on our way to Tirano in northern Italy. We have free time in this idyllic town before returning to Tiefencastel. Spend a day at leisure on Day 5 - there are several walks from the town, and Parc Ela, Switzerland's largest nature park, is within easy reach. You can also enjoy 50% fares on local transport with your Treyn Tailor-Made Swiss Card.

    Days 4-5 - Breakfast, lunch, dinner

    Chur

    We take the train to Chur, where we join the Arosa Line. This stunning ride climbs from Chur, crossing the elegant Langweiser Viaduct, before reaching charming, lakeside Arosa. Later we return to Chur, Switzerland's oldest town. You have time to discover the historic centre before returning to Tiefencastel. Day 7 is at leisure.

    Days 6-7 - Breakfast, lunch, dinner

  • Day 8 - The Glacier Express

    Glacier Express

    Leaving Tiefencastel, we connect with the iconic Glacier Express in Chur for the amazing journey to Andermatt.

We then change trains and continue through the lakeside scenery via Lucerne to Basel, for a night at the Hotel Schweizerhof.
