GLACIER EXPRESS HOLIDAYS

The iconic Glacier Express Train Journey connects Zermatt to St Moritz and is one of Switzerland's most scenic and popular rail journeys. This stunning journey lasts 8 hours, with the train rolling at 24 miles per hour, giving you ample time to soak up the views from the panoramic windows. 

 

You'll travel through the heart of Switzerland, where you can marvel at the incredible Swiss scenes of meadows, dense forests and snow-capped mountains. You'll cross over the Rhine Gorge to the Oberalp Pass, up 6,670 feet high. Then descend to the gorgeous views of the Rhône Valley and its vineyards.

GLACIER EXPRESS EXPERIENCE

                              

Standard Class: 

Standard class seating on the Glacier Express is arranged two by two across the aisle; all seats are configured as part of a table for four people. All seats line up perfectly with the large panoramic windows, meaning a perfect view of the stunning scenery.

First Class: 

First Class seats onboard the Glacier Express are configured in a two-by-one arrangement across the aisle. This means that opposite every table for four is a table for two, allowing for more seating options. As there are fewer seats, they are slightly larger, with more leg and elbow room and more space for luggage storage. 

Standard Class & First-Class passengers can purchase meals and drinks at their seat and can choose from a set menu and à la carte dining options.

Excellence Class: 

Excellence Class sets standards as high as the mountain peaks along the legendary route. You'll have exclusive access to the Glacier Bar and an upgraded dining experience.

Enjoy a seasonal 5-course menu including wine accompaniment, coffee & digestif with chocolates, and tea time in the afternoon with treats. Soft drinks, fruit juices, coffee and champagne are also available. 

You are guaranteed an incredible experience with outstanding views in whichever class you travel in. Speak to our expert team today to get prices!
