Experience the Wonders of Switzerland

Standard DreamTrip
Journey through the spectacular Swiss Alps — including an adventure aboard the world-famous Glacier Express train! — staying at hand-picked lodgings designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. Book by December 12.

About Your Trip

The magic of Switzerland is yours to discover during this amazing DreamTrip for guests ages 5 years and older, starting in Lucerne. From this medieval fortress city, you'll voyage through the Alps to the ski resort of St. Moritz — a retreat frequented by royalty! Board the Glacier Express train to Brig, and wind through the Albula Pass tunnel before crossing the massive Landwasser viaduct and descending through the Rhone Valley. Wander the car-free, cobbled streets of Zermatt village at the foot of Matterhorn mountain — it’s quite a sight to behold! Your journey winds down with a sumptuous fondue dinner at Le Petit Chalet restaurant in Geneva.

What we love:

  • Visiting Chillon Castle, the inspiration behind Lord Byron’s poem, “The Prisoner of Chillon” following his walk through the dungeons — look out for his name, which he carved into a pillar.
  • Winding through the heart of the Swiss Alps via looping tunnels and dizzying viaducts aboard the Glacier Express, a train fully powered by hydroelectricity.
  • Learning about Swiss culture and history! Interestingly, thanks to its prime geographical location, many people in Switzerland fluently speak multiple languages, including English as well as 3 of the country’s main official languages — French, German and Italian.

Itinerary

Day 1 (Lucerne)

Welcome to Switzerland, an enchanting land known for imposing mountain peaks, delectable cheese and chocolate, cozy villages and a rich, diverse culture. From the airport in Zurich, you’ll be transferred to your luxe Lucerne hotel (see Transportation section for transfer times).

In the evening, you’ll meet up with your Travel Director and fellow DreamTrippers for a fabulous welcome dinner and wine. Cheers to good times ahead!
Overnight at Hotel Astoria.
Meals included: Dinner with wine*.

Day 2 (Lucerne to St. Moritz)

Get to know lovely Lucerne — a 14th-century city still protected by medieval fortifications — as your Travel Director shows you its famed covered bridges, painted gables and other sights. You’ll also have time to visit the shops or to stroll around the lake. After your relaxed morning, it’s time to head down scenic roads to the beloved ski resort area of St. Moritz, where you can see the city’s spa quarter and the glacial lake. Dinner (with wine!) follows at your resort-style hotel.
Overnight at Hotel Laudinella.

Day 3 (St. Moritz)

Today is all yours to spend at your leisure. Why not check out the hotel’s spa area (at your own expense) and other wonderful amenities? If you’re feeling adventurous, an aerial cableway is just a short walk away — it offers some amazing views! — while a nearby public bus stop can whisk you to the center of St. Moritz if you wish to explore more of this elegant resort town on your own. Another option: Taking a ride on Bernina Express — a scenic rail journey so epic, it’s been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 4 (St. Moritz to Brig)

Board the world-famous Glacier Express for a spectacular train ride through the heart of the Swiss Alps — lunch included! Descend through the tunnels of the Albula Pass and traverse the lofty Landwasser viaduct. Your train then joins the broad Rhine Gorge and meanders beside rivers, pastures and woodlands, while picturesque landscapes of mountains and quaint villages glide by. After a series of spirals, you’ll reach the highest point of the route, the Oberalp Pass. Modern, panoramic viewing cars ensure that you won’t miss a thing on your descent to Andermatt and down the Rhone Valley. Around midafternoon you’ll disembark in historic Brig and have some time on your own before dinner at your cozy, comfortable hotel.
Overnight at Hotel Alex.
Meals included: Breakfast; lunch; dinner with wine.

Day 5 (Brig)

Marvel at the dramatic Swiss scenery as you follow the narrow valley which leads to Tasch. There, you’ll board a cogwheel train and set off for the traffic-free haven of Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn. Stroll through cobbled streets to browse in the shops, explore the ancient wooden farmhouses or visit the Matterhorn Museum to pass through the homes of yesteryear. For a real adventure, consider booking a cable-car ride up the Klein Matterhorn — if you’re not afraid of heights, that is. Return to your hotel in Brig where the remainder of the day is at your leisure.

Day 6 (Brig to Geneva)

Traverse the lower Rhone valley to the shores of Lake Geneva. There, a local expert will take you to Chillon Castle, set on a rocky islet in the lake.

There, you’ll be able to see the United Nations Office (the organization’s headquarters), Old Town, the famous Jet d’Eau water fountain and other city sights.
