For a slower-paced, relaxing option of admiring the stunning and mighty Alps, the Glacier Express has got you covered.

Travelling from Zermatt to St. Moritz in elegance and style with its luxurious parlour and passenger cars with first, second, and third classes, the Glacier Express’ first voyage dates back as far back as June 25, 1930.

Since then, it has utilized more up-to-date technologies to transform itself into a “distinctive first-class Swiss tourism product” as “worldwide demand for this one-of-a-kind Swiss Alpine train continues undiminished,” the website explains.

What makes this train unique and authentic is that it has not ventured entirely from its roots.

Instead, it has opted to create a delightful fusion of traditional charm with contemporary comfort.

The classic route transports passengers through three cantons of Valais, Uri, and Graubünden, providing astonishing panoramic views for eight unadulterated hours of amazement “for your eyes and your palate, too.”

From now until the end of March, Glacier Express is offering exclusive winter specials sure to enchant visitors of all ages and preferences.
