Package details include

GoldenPass train traveling through Swiss countrysideSwitzerland is undoubtedly one of the world’s most stunning and scenic destinations. And with this independent and customizable GoldenPass vacation, you’ll understand why. Enjoy five days of camera-ready rail travel on the GoldenPass Line as you journey from Lucerne to Montreux through edelweiss-dotted meadows, cozy Alpine villages, pristine lakes and lofty peaks.

On different sections of the 150-mile journey you'll experience two unique types of rail carriages: The panoramic cars provide modern comfort and spectacular views through expansive windows while the Belle Epoque carriages are a throwback to the vintage 1930s era, complete with rich hardwood walls and upholstered seats. Purchase delicious meals to enjoy onboard as the mesmerizing scenery passes by. Hotels in Lucerne, Interlaken and Montreux are always within convenient walking distance or a short taxi ride from the station where traditional Swiss hospitality awaits at your choice of 3- or 4-star properties.

Hikers in Switzerland next to mountain streamHighlights include a day at leisure in Lucerne with its covered wooden bridges, cobblestone lanes and quaint buildings. Enjoy two nights in the chalet-filled resort town of Interlaken at the base of the Alps, where woodland paths are just waiting to be hiked. Here, you’ll see three world renowned mountains—the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau. The Jungfrau is often called the "Top of Europe" and it is one of the most emblematic sights of the Swiss Alps. Here you'll also take an excursion to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest-altitude railway station where panoramic views extend as far as the Vosges Mountains in France to the Black Forest in Germany. Your vacation ends in perfection in the resort town of Montreux, a French-speaking city nestled in a sheltered Lake Geneva bay and surrounded by vineyards.
