Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK/Interlaken
  • ​Fly to Zurich, then travel to Interlaken, in the Bernese Oberland, by train. Your hotel is just a short stroll from the station and your luggage will be transported separately and delivered direct to your mountain-view room. We'll head out for a short walking tour of Interlaken with a Local Guide and then enjoy a welcome drink before dinner at the hotel this evening​.
  • DAY 2 Schilthorn
  • ​Today's thrilling excursion starts with a train ride to Lauterbrunnen. From here a Postbus – an iconic yellow Swiss bus – takes you to Stechelberg Schilthornbahn, and then you take the cable car to Birg. Admire the stunning vistas from its viewing platform, and then take another cable car to Schilthorn – the '007 mountain'. Situated on its 2,970-metre summit is a revolving restaurant, Piz Gloria, which was used as the location for Blofeld's headquarters in the 1969 James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. You can enjoy a glass of mulled wine here whilst taking in spectacular views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. Your next cable-car ride takes you to Mürren, a pretty cliff-top village offering fantastic views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. After time to explore on foot, we'll return to the hotel where dinner will be served this evening.​
  • DAY 3 Christmas Eve Interlaken
  • ​Today is yours to relax and explore Interlaken at leisure. Perhaps enjoy some time in the hotel's sauna or head out and do some last minute Christmas shopping.  It's Christmas Eve and tonight a four-course dinner with wine will be served at the hotel.
  • DAY 4 Christmas Day Gstaad
  • ​Christmas Day promises to be very special as we board the luxurious GoldenPass train for a ride to the Alpine village of Gstaad. The GoldenPass Line journeys through some of Switzerland's most spectacular scenery, so sit back and take in the views from the comfort of this 1930s' Orient Express-inspired train. Gstaad is a destination favoured by the rich and famous, and when we arrive you'll have time to wander the traffic-free streets and explore the charming chalets, designer shops and gourmet restaurants. For the ultimate winter wonderland experience we'll also take a horse-drawn carriage ride around the resort. Back at the hotel our festive celebrations continue when we gather to enjoy a four-course dinner with wine.
  • DAY 5 Boxing Day Jungfraujoch
  • ​This morning we are going to head off on an included tour to the 'Top of Europe'. We'll board a train to Jungfraujoch and travel through the foothills of the Alps to Lauterbrunnen. We'll change trains and then continue to Kleine Scheidegg, where we will join the Jungfrau Railway. The cogwheel train travels through a mountain tunnel and climbs up to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe. You'll have plenty of time to admire this incredible world of rock, ice and snow from the viewing platforms and if you wish, you can visit the Ice Palace, a labyrinth of tunnels and fantastic ice sculptures. Later, we will descend via the charming mountain resort of Grindelwald and make our way back to Interlaken.
  • DAY 6 Interlaken/UK
  • Enjoy your final morning at leisure in Interlaken. Later, we will travel to the airport by train, via Bern, ready for our flight back to the UK. Your luggage will be delivered to the airport separately.​
