Rail, self-drive & cruise experience
Switzerland by Luxury trains:
Achingly beautiful panorama and luxuries galore will be your company while you journey from hauntingly stunning hamlet to another breathtaking hill station as you traverse scores of long tunnels and bridges. Remain witness to the Swiss urban life, pastoral villages, and gently undulating, lush meadows dotted with wild flowers, while the snow peaked Alps play hide-n-seek with you. While you’ll get to view mountains, glaciers, resort towns and sleepy hamlet, your train journeys can be adapted into shorter trips.
Alternatively, you can opt for specialised train journeys. There’s the Chocolate Train especially designed for chocolate aficionado. It runs between Montreux and the Cailler factory in Broc. The itinerary includes a visit to the chocolate factory, chocolate tasting, a visit to an 800 year old castle and a dairy in Gruyère, ensuring a wonderful time for your family and friends. If you are rather fond of cheese, take the Cheese Train, and go for a ride along the Lake Geneva region, from Montreux to Chateau-d’Oex. Enjoy exotic selections of cheese and fine wine on board, relish visits to a cheese farm or opt for a fondue tasting session, for this journey promises to be a gourmand’s delight!
Switzerland while self-driving
There can be no easier or better way of exploring Switzerland than in a self-driven car. Easier because it is, indeed, surprisingly easy to navigate your way around the vales and hills, better because your journeys will become rather flexible with easy breaks and whimsical detours and sojourns. Drive along the endless stretches of picturesque roads lined by the lofty pines and verdant or snowy meadows, depending upon the season. Let every bend, nook and cranny surprise you with its magnificent offerings, where you don’t need to be a professional photographer to take stunning photos! Stop and appreciate nature’s abundance while you stroll along the gurgling streams with the balmy Alpine breeze keeping you comfortable. Switzerland is also a foodie’s heaven. Indulge at the many quaint restaurants that serve authentic local cuisine, including the Rösti, a traditional Swiss dish of roasted shredded potatoes.
Hairpin bends, alluring mountainscape and the sheer soul of the country will truly make for a wonderful journey by car.
Cruising through the crystal-clear Swiss waterbodies, surely it’ll be a delight for your refined senses!
Lake Geneva is a cruise lover’s paradise. The biggest Swiss inland lake has some of the most scenic cruises of the region. The cruise boats connect charming hamlets, crisscrossing the lake providing you with ample opportunities to grasp the region’s charms. Enjoy the views of the distant towns, chalets and chateaus from varied perspective from the boat in the backdrop of the setting sun. An unforgettable time awaits you here.
Alternatively, you can opt for a boat ride in Lake Silsersee, another magnificent Alpine lake. Ride the "Segl-Maria", a modern vessel, as it ploughs across the lake from Sils Maria to Maloja. During this scenic cruise, it stops at the Chastè peninsula, Plaun da Lej and Isola. The Upper Engadine is regarded as a fisherman’s paradise during the summer months when mountain trout, greyling and char are abundantly available in the lake. Experience these and more on your boat rides!
