Glacier Express Ski Safari

Switzerland

Our Glacier Express Ski Safari is a classic rail adventure with skiing beneath the Matterhorn, glitz in St Moritz, and a breath-taking train journey through the Swiss Alps.

This luxury rail adventure combines world-class skiing with sparkling mountain scenery and gourmet cuisine. Travelling entirely by train gives you plenty of opportunities to take it all in.

In Zermatt, you can enjoy the expansive terrain and excellent snow, or cruise down easier pistes to the Michelin star mountain restaurants. St Moritz is equally appealing, with scenic slopes overlooking the lake, luxury hotels and fantastic fine-dining.

Travelling between these iconic resorts on the Glacier Express is a real highlight, and the full-day journey includes lunch with panoramic views.

Flying in and out of Zurich, you could also spend a night in Switzerland’s largest city.

Our Marketing Manager, Tara, treated herself to a pre-Christmas Glacier Express Safari in December 2014. Read her first-hand account.

Introduced for the 2019/20 season, the Glacier Express Excellence Class offers a premium coach experience for the journey. With a maximum of 20 places on the train, travellers in Excellence Class will receive an exclusive concierge service with a red carpet welcome and check-in at Zermatt or St Moritz, a guaranteed window seat and tablet for entertainment, a welcome drink from the Glacier Bar, snacks and soft drinks throughout the day, an aperitif and appetisers followed by an exquisite and regional five-course lunch, including wines, and an afternoon tea.

"Why settle for visiting just one resort when there’s such a unique way of travelling between these two Swiss classics?"

Suggested Itinerary

Our classic itinerary runs from Zermatt to St Moritz, but it’s also possible to travel in reverse. For the best experience, we recommend upgrading to first class or, for a real treat, to the Glacier Express Excellence Class.
