Maybe hiking is not really your thing, or perhaps it is, but not this trip.  You want to see the Alps by train.

If this is you, you want one of our Scenic Journeys.  These tours combine nights in beautiful, walkable cities with overnight stops in stunning mountain villages. Enjoy gorgeous train rides through the countryside, stop and see the sights.  Take it all in.

You’ll stay in wonderful 3 and 4-star hotels at each stop.  Yes, we’ll send you hiking notes, and if you want to get out on the trail, you will have options.

You’ll also have sightseeing suggestions for the best cable cars, funicular trains, lake boats, museums, castles, summer luges, waterfalls and sunset viewpoints.

Switzerland wonderland of Scenic Journeys.  From Jungfraujoch to the Glacier Express, to modest local cable cars, and relaxing lake boats – there is no end of great trips to beautiful viewpoints. We like to slow down and spend a day or two at each stop, so there is time to sightsee.  Don’t worry… we’ll help sort it out for you.

These tours are easy to moderate.  Expect to take a half-day train ride every other day with some full days to play and explore.  We offer a couple of great itineraries, but are happy to customize to fit any itinerary, be it the Chocolate Train or Bernina Express.  Chances are we’ve already checked them out and have plenty of advice on how to best spend your time.

Scenic Journeys can be booked year-round.  For hiking, you’ll want to go May – October, but if you are here for the mountaintop cable cars and scenic trains, any time of year is great.

Truth be told, we didn’t want to return. Our experience was fabulous and we can’t express enough how grateful we are to have chosen your company to help us plan this trip. Everything you recommended was spot on. That is whatever we were able to fit in. The hardest part was deciding what to do each day and having to choose when it’s impossible in such a short time to do it all or even come close! Every hotel was great in it’s own way. The weather was fantastic. The meals were excellent.
