Swiss Christmas holiday

About your stay

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 is littered with excellent walking and cross country skiing trails.
Your included 8 day Swiss Travel Pass gives you daily unlimited access to enjoy so many exhilarating alpine rail excursions – to Luzern, 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.
