Swiss Alps & the Glacier Express - 9 Days

Swiss Alps & the Glacier Express - 9 Days


Glacier Express, Zermatt, Klosters, Thun, Pontresina


Saturday Day 1:  We travel to Dover with a comfort stop, and our short ferry crossing to France & our overnight hotel.

Sunday Day 2: We continue our leisurely journey south to our second overnight hotel near the Swiss border.

Monday  Day 3:  We cross the border into Switzerland at Basle, travelling through the stunning Swiss countryside to Thun for lunch. Ringed by mountains, hugging the banks of the startlingly aquamarine Aare River and topped by a turreted castle, medieval Thun is every inch the picture-book Swiss town. We complete our journey to Tasch where we will be transferred with our luggage to Zermatt and our home for the next two nights at the 4* Hotel Alex.

Tuesday Day 4:  Today is free to relax in Zermatt. Here is a world without cars, electric-cars and horse-drawn sleighs and carriages are the only transport allowed. Why not take the highest open-air rack railway in Europe, the Gronergrat. The train climbs past Swiss stone pine and larch forests up to a height of 3089 metres. Once you reach the top you can enjoy breath taking all-round views of 29 peaks above 4000 metres, with the Matterhorn right in the centre.

Wednesday Day 5: Glacier Express Zermatt - Chur 153 miles After breakfast this morning, we say farewell to our hotel and walk the short distance to Zermatt Train Station and take the Glacier Express for our 5½ hour journey on the slowest express train in the world! We will travel through snow-capped mountains, enjoy stunning views of glaciers, sparkling streams and waterfalls as we make our way towards Chur, where our coach (and luggage!) will meet us this afternoon to transfer us to the Silvretta Park Hotel, our home for the next 3 nights.

Thursday Day 6:  Free for you to explore the local areas of Davos and famous Klosters, known as a playground for princes, using the local cable cars and trains, which are free for us to use courtesy of our inclusive Davos/Klosters Card, allowing convenient and easy access to the surrounding mountains.

Friday Day 7: This morning we visit Pontresina. Situated at 1,805 metres above sea level in a side valley, very close to the Bernina Range that features the two most famous peaks of the Engadine: Piz Palü and Piz Bernina. Here, you will find peace and tranquillity. This mountain village, steeped in history, excites from the moment you set foot in it, with the beauty of the traditional Engadine houses and the elegance of large hotels of the Belle Époque immediately transporting you back to a time of olde-worlde charm. The afternoon is free in Klosters.

Saturday Day 8: We travel back across Switzerland via Basle to France and our overnight hotel.

Sunday Day 9:  To Calais and our short ferry crossing back home to Mid-Wales.

Mystery Weekend Coach Tours from Sabrina Travel

  Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Scottish Highlands. Two words - Magnificent and Dramatic. A big thank you for driving us safely and making the travelling comfortable as well as amusing and interesting. Thank you for acquiring good rooms of our choice in the 3 lovely hotels. It means a lot!  
 
Mr & Mrs Mills
 
  We wanted to thank you for a really great holiday to Northumberland. The coach was very comfortable and brilliantly driven. Dave was a great courier, entertaining us on route. The hotel was very good and in a great location. The days out were informative and the countryside beautiful. It was our first trip with you and we hope it will not be the last.  
 
Jen & Pete
 
  Just felt we had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had on the Danube Cruise. We enjoyed it very much, everything was nice and so very well organised.  
 
McGauley
 
  Once again an outstanding tour to the Tattoo - could not fault a thing. The trips out were great with lovely extras!
