What To Expect
With its unspoiled scenery, majestic peaks, fascinating old towns, sparkling lakes, rich history, and cities with a cosmopolitan flair, Switzerland is the perfect holiday offering something for everyone. On this Switzerland tour, you’ll experience some of its most beautiful scenery and interesting cities with overnights in Zurich, St. Moritz, Lugano, Zermatt, the Lausanne area, and Lucerne.
  • Day 1: ARRIVE IN ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

    Check into your hotel in Zurich and start exploring with the assistance of your CosmosGO app. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers

    : Dinner
  • Day 2: ZURICH – APPENZELL – VADUZ, LIECHTENSTEIN – ST. MORITZ

    A sensational drive today takes you through some of Switzerland's most renowned cantons. Stop in Appenzell to see the Old Town with its 16th-century Town Hall. Continue to the minute Principality of Liechtenstein for a visit of its tiny capital, Vaduz. Pass through scenic "Heidiland" and into the Rhine Valley before ascending mighty Julier Pass. Soon, you'll be in the heart of Switzerland's largest canton, the Grisons, where you'll marvel at some of the world's best alpine views. Spend the next two nights in glamourous St. Moritz, host of two Winter Olympic Games (1928 and 1948) and the premier winter retreat of European royalty, celebrities, and the international jet set for more than a century.

    : Breakfast, Dinner
  • Day 3: ST. MORITZ

    Enjoy a whole day to explore this scenic Engadin valley resort. Renowned for its stunning forest, lake, and mountain setting and an average of 322 days of sunshine per year, St. Moritz is comprised of two villages separated by a mile of lake shore-St. Moritz Dorf and St. Moritz Bad. Extending up the slope from the lake, terraced Dorf is a tapestry of grand hotels, upscale boutiques, and traditional Engadin architecture, characterised by arched wooden doors, small deep-set windows, and artistically etched facades. Neighbouring Bad is known for its ice rink, mineral and mud baths, and lakeside promenade

    : Breakfast
  • Day 4: ST. MORITZ – BERNINA EXPRESS TRAIN TO TIRANO, ITALY – LUGANO, SWITZERLAND

    Experience one of Europe's most spectacular train rides, the Bernina Express. Board the train in St. Moritz, and travel across the lofty Bernina Pass via the Swiss Poschiavo area to Tirano in the Italian Valtellina. Here, re-join your coach and journey to the shores of sparkling Lake Lugano.

    : Breakfast
  • Day 5: LUGANO – LAKE MAGGIORE, ITALY – TASCH, SWITZERLAND – ZERMATT

    Discover the highlights of charming, subtropical Lugano before travelling to Lake Maggiore, Italy's second-largest lake. Consider joining the optional boat trip to visit to the garden island of Isola Bella with its splendid 17th-century palazzo (palace). Return to Switzerland via picturesque Simplon Pass and hop aboard a train in Tasch for the only connection to car-free Zermatt, a resort surrounded by Switzerland's highest mountains-including the celebrated Matterhorn.

    : Breakfast, Dinner
  • Day 6: ZERMATT – LAUSANNE AREA

    Time to stroll through town and maybe take a break to sample the local fare, like raclette (melted Swiss cheese), fondue, or hand-made chocolate. Perhaps shop for an authentic Swiss watch or Swiss Army knife. Then, take the train back to Tasch, where you will rejoin the coach and continue your journey through the vineyards and apricot groves of the lower Rhone Valley to crescent-shaped Lake Geneva, one of Europe's largest lakes.

    : Breakfast, Dinner
  • Day 7: LAUSANNE AREA

    Spend either a whole day at leisure exploring Lausanne and its surroundings or join an optional excursion to charming Geneva with its cobblestoned Old Town and the Palais des Nations, European headquarters of the United Nations.

    : Breakfast
  • Day 8: LAUSANNE AREA – GRUYERES – BERNE – INTERLAKEN – LUCERNE

    The first stop today is in picturesque Gruyeres to visit a local cheese factory. Then, on to Berne, Switzerland's charming 12th-century capital. The Old Town is a showcase of medieval architecture, arcaded shops, artistic fountains, and the landmark Zytglogge (clock tower), an ornate animated astronomical clock built in 1530. Travel on, skirting the shores of Lake Thun, and stop in the renowned resort of Interlaken for a visit before crossing Brunig Pass to Lucerne.

    : Breakfast
  • Day 9: LUCERNE – ZURICH

    Discover the wonders of Lucerne, a city straight out of a storybook. Situated on Lake Lucerne beneath the snow-capped Alps, Lucerne highlights include cobblestone streets lined with frescoed homes, the world-famous Chapel bridge, and the poignant Lion monument. Perhaps choose from a wonderful selection of optional activities-the most popular is an excursion to mount Stanserhorn. Return to Zurich for an overnight.
