The alpine peaks of Switzerland are world famous and you will be staying in the heart of this incredibly dramatic scenery. There are numerous world class ski fields nearby and the area has many excellent walking and cross country skiing trails. Your included 8 day Swiss Travel Pass allows you daily unlimited access to enjoy so many exhilarating alpine rail excursions – to Luzern (on the Brünig Panoramic Express), medieval Bern, Interlaken, Brienz (noted for its wood-carvings), Thun, and Meiringen (of Sherlock Holmes fame and where ‘meringues'originated) plus the chic mountain ski resorts of Grindelwald and Wengen. We have also included pre-booked seats on the Golden Pass Panoramic train from Zweisimmen, past Gstaad and Château-d'Oex, to Montreux on Lake Geneva! You will be surrounded by stupendous mountain peaks accessible by cable car rides and lifts such as to the Schilthorn of James Bond fame (cable car to the top included on your Swiss Travel Pass) and the Jungfraujoch (train at a discount using your pass) – at 3,350 metres high, the views are magnificent. Welcome in the New Year with a special New Year's Eve Dinner at your hotel. (B/D)

“Just about perfect...”
- NSW, Australia Dec 2018

We had a fabulous trip, staying at Lauterbrunnen with the hospitable Mark and Ursula and never ending spectacular views. Accommodation is basic but very clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast and good night meals, a great bunch of fellow travellers and so much fun on New Years Eve - a place to revisit. The train system is brilliant, the area a perfect springboard to the best Alpine locations. Add to that an excellent value for money trip, the kindness of the Swiss people and perfect more
