By far the best way to see Switzerland is by train. Holidays to delight in all seasons of the year including New Year & Valentine celebration tours. View our NEW TOUR FILM; see "Swiss Mountain Steam".
Experience five completely unique mountain railroad excursions - the Pilatus Railway, the Rigi Railway, the Stanserhorn, the Titlis cable car and the Hammetschwand Lift - all from our base at the 4* Seehotel Pilatus beside lovely Lake Lucerne, whose leisure facilities open out onto a fantastic panorama of lake and mountain scenery.
Two of the world's greatest railway journeys on one tour! Enjoy the classic Glacier Express journey across the Swiss Alps, followed by the Bernina Express in its full glory. Not forgetting Lausanne, Montreux and St Moritz, plus stays on Lake Geneva and in the Engadine Valley.
Cruise across three Swiss lakes the nostalgic way by paddle-steamer and experience three exhilarating steam train excursions in the Swiss mountains all on one tour based in Lake Lucerne's lovely Hergiswil. Also featuring the Pilatus Cogwheel Railway and a family-run 4* hotel by the lake.
This unique steam-packed ten days includes more highlights than we could have ever envisaged when we started to plan it! Six steam train excursions, 5 paddle steamers, a steam tram, Lucerne's excellent Transport Museum, Swiss Vapeur Park, and a historic electric train with accompanying absinthe Schnapps! Even our visit to the Brienz Rothornbahn is different, with a guided visit of the depot and the special 'sausage train'. Oh, and there's also the Brünig Pass, Voralpen Express and Golden Pass!
Here's something a little bit different - an 8 day tour to our popular hotel on Lake Lucerne, but with a festive twist! Compare Hergiswil's village Christmas Market with Lucerne's, which is actually inside the station, and the stunning market in Einsiedeln's abbey square. Marvel at the Golden Pass route, the revolving cable car at Mount Titlis and Mount Pilatus. Cruise on Lake Lucerne, take the Rigi Railway up the 'Queen of the Mountains' and relax at two St Nicholas Parades.
How do you fancy a Christmas with a difference amidst the lakes and mountains of Switzerland? Marvel at wintry scenery on the Goldenpass Line, the route of the Glacier Express and the Rigi Mountain Railway, soar up Mount Titlis, and relax on Lake Lucerne's shore at the 4* Seehotel Pilatus, whose leisure facilities open out onto a fantastic panorama of lake and mountain scenery.
