Heavenly Heights

Even with its four official languages, Switzerland still lacks the words to fully describe the beauty of its majestic snow-capped mountains, scenic railways, small villages, and picturesque alpine lakes. Added to this feast for the eyes are the delicious culinary specialties, sweets, and sips to be savoured in this magical country. Soak in breathtaking scenery on a ride aboard the famous Glacier Express train, enjoy the iconic sights in Switzerland’s cities including Lucerne’s Chapel Bridge, or take a high-altitude train to Gornergrat, where you'll experience spectacular views of the Alps.
