The Swiss Alps is one of the premier tourist destinations. It’s hard to imagine fulfilling your dream of visiting Europe without making a trip to Switzerland. The skiing is fantastic throughout the Swiss Alps, but even just passing through is enough to leave a lasting impression; you’ll never see anything quite like it. The Glacier Express was created to give tourists the ultimate experience when visiting Switzerland. It is hailed as “the slowest express train in the world.” Lasting for 7-8 hours, the train will start in the luxurious village of St. Moritz and travel through the beautiful Alps until you reach the town of Zermatt, home of the world famous Matterhorn. The train goes both directions, so you are just as able to begin your journey in Zermatt and end in St. Moritz.

The train features panoramic windows in the viewing cars to completely immerse you in all of the surrounding beauty. There are countless scenic highlights on your journey between the Engadine mountain valley, Landwasser Valley, and the Valais glacier landscape. Enjoy gorgeous vistas like the Rhine gorge, the various mountain lakes, and the magnificent Matterhorn.
