Head off on a self-guided touring holiday in Switzerland, and you will encounter outstanding scenery and hotels to match. We make all the arrangements, and supply you with our comprehensively researched route notes, leaving you free to explore at leisure.
Incredible scenery and an impressively punctual transport network are a winning combination, especially when it comes to touring holidays. In Switzerland, not only does the seamless travel system makes it extremely easy to access the country’s many thrilling landscapes, but these landscapes – from sapphire mountain lakes to emerald-green forests and glacier-encrusted, white-tipped peaks – make the journeys themselves a real pleasure.
The focus of Inntravel’s touring holiday in Switzerland is what is perhaps its most iconic railway: the world-famous Glacier Express. The scenery is arguably even more romantic and dramatic in winter and, besides the journey on the Glacier Express, one of the highlights of the holiday is spending a couple of days in the Bernese Oberland, marvelling at the majestic, snow-clad mountains.
