Is This Trip Right for You?

  • The accommodations included in this itinerary are 4* Hotels.

  • The primary means of transportation on this trip is by train. Swiss trains are a fast (and punctual) way to cross long distances, allowing you to avoid traffic jams and arrive right into the city centre. They are comfortable and all have toilets, however, can sometimes be quite busy. You may need to make exchanges in between to reach your destination. Please note that you’ll have to carry your own luggage on and off the train and storage space for luggage on trains can be quite limited, so make sure it doesn’t exceed our weight and size recommendations indicated in the Essential Trip Information packet. 
  • This tour requires a minimum of 8 participants and a maximum of 16 participants in order to ensure the best small group tour experience. 
  • There are several free days in this itinerary to choose your own adventure.

  • Some of Switzerland’s best scenery is found on walks, which can be quite steep and long. While this trip itself doesn’t require a high level of fitness, it’s essential to be at least moderately fit if you want to take part in these activities. During the trip, you have the option to hike the trails in the Zermatt, Eiger, Jungfrau, and Mt Pilatus region.

  • A single supplement is available if you’d prefer to not share a room on this trip, but is based on availability.

  • Hotels in Europe often don’t have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.
