The Bernina Express
Swiss Alps and the Bernina Express
This super tour is based at the wonderful Central Sporthotel in Davos. We include a journey on the awesome Bernina Express railway from Davos, high into the alps and past lakes and glaciers to travel across the border to Tirano, Italy. Also included in Davos is a "Davos Card" which allows free use of local transport, cable cars and mountain railways – perfect for the tour driver's day off!

Day 1 Short Channel crossing and on for dinner and an overnight stay in Saarbrücken.
Day 2 Continue into Switzerland to the popular high Alpine resort of Davos, for a 5 night stay.
Day 3 A full day at leisure. The included 'Davos Card' permits free and unlimited use of all local transport and we suggest a trip on the Schwarzalp Mountain Railway for lunch in the panoramic restaurant followed by a visit to the Alpine Garden.
Day 4 Travel to Klosters, winter holiday destination for the Royal Family, and then on to Chur. This charming, historic town has cobbled streets, secret courtyards and a large cathedral. We suggest some hours at leisure for exploration before returning to Davos via Filisur and the verdant Albula Pass (closed in winter).
Day 5 Board the Bernina Express Railway and enjoy the fantastic journey through the mountains to Italy. See lakes, gorges and glaciers as well as a series of loops and tunnels that make this one of Europe's greatest train journeys. On arrival in Tirano, Italy enjoy a little time at leisure before joining the coach and travelling back to Davos by road, with a fresh perspective on the awesome scenery en route.
Day 6 A morning excursion to St Moritz. Elegant and chic, it lies in the middle of a lake-dotted landscape and offers one of the sunniest climates in all Switzerland. Return to Davos for an afternoon at leisure.
