The Glacier Express Train: St. Mortiz to Zermatt

The Glacier Express is Switzerland’s classic Alpine Train Tour!

The Glacier Express - Europe's Most Scenic Railway!

After a trek in the Alps many travelers wish to extend their journey to take in more of the Alps’ amazing scenery.

We highly recommend the Glacier Express that runs from St. Moritz to Zermatt. You’ll discover Eastern and Central Switzerland in comfort and style.

While a standard itinerary includes 1 night in St. Moritz and 1 night in Zermatt, we recommend an extra night in Zermatt so you can enjoy a leisurely hike beneath the Matterhorn!
