Across the Roof of Europe

From the Eiger to the Matterhorn
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, highly scenic journey by rail
  • included rides on the Jungfraujoch & Gornergrat railways
  • taste little-known Swiss wines
  • Eiger, Jungfrau, Matterhorn – mountainous icons galore
  • add a trip aboard the famous Glacier Express

In Switzerland, the extraordinary becomes commonplace. Sapphire mountain lakes, glinting in emerald-green valleys and surrounded by glacier-encrusted, white-tipped mountains that twinkle like diamonds in the sun, are thick on the ground. Incredible feats of engineering that take trains through some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain with precise punctuality hardly warrant a raised eyebrow.

Look past the silk-smooth chocolate, cuckoo clocks and yodelling – contemporary Switzerland, land of four languages, is all about epic journeys and sublime experiences.
     
Lonely Planet
And mountains whose names conjure up images of heroic men with frozen beards and sunburned faces, and whose scale reboots our definition of size, arrive like buses – in quick succession. In this land, famed for its silky-smooth chocolate, its efficient, cuckoo-clock timekeeping, its jangling cowbells and its crater-filled cheese, the clichés are but a small part of the story. Switzerland is a postcard brought vividly to life, and although the extraordinary is commonplace, it is absolutely priceless.
