ITEM DESCRIPTION

Switzerland is known for more than just chocolate and cheese, they are also known as the land of mountains. You will be treated to breathtaking views, as you explore the natural beauty this country has to offer.

In Zermatt you will be staying at the unique and eccentric Backstage Boutique Spa Hotel. The hotel was designed to be a work of art by artist Heinz Julen, a member of the infamous Julen family in Zermatt. After a day of skiing, climbing or hiking enjoy an authentic, yet contemporary, take on Swiss cuisine at the Spycher restaurant, a rustic grill best known for their flambéed dishes. Explore the stunning and picturesque town surrounded by the highest peaks of the Swiss Alps, including the notable Matterhorn.

All aboard the Glacier Express! Travel by train from Zermatt to St. Moritz in absolute luxury. The Glacier Express is renowned for being the slowest ‘express’ train in the world, the scenic journey takes about eight hours. The train makes its way through the astonishing massive Alps, through narrow valleys, tight curves, ninety-one tunnels and across two hundred and ninety-one bridges. This is an unforgettable day, with landscapes as magical as those only created in fairy tales. You will be seated in Excellence Class, where there will be no more than twenty passengers, a five-course meal served, wine, cocktails, as well as culinary delights. Each seat is a window seat, offering panoramic and magnificent views.

Last but not least, you will visit St. Mortiz, the luxury Alpine resort town that sits 1800 meters above seas level. You will stay at the enchanted Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, where history and elegance come together. The hotel has welcomed several famous guests such as Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock. Winter or summer St. Mortiz has so much to offer, from skiing and hiking, to just enjoying all that the Alps have to offer, while creating lasting memories.
