undefined  The majestic Klein Matterhorn dominates the scenery on our 15-day guided vacation along the Country Roads of Switzerland. Fly into Zurich before heading for two nights in lovely Lucerne. Embark on a thrilling cog-wheel railway trip to the summit of Mount Pilatus; see covered bridges and Baroque churches. Enjoy the sights of Berne with a local historian to guide you on a Signature Experience through the Bear Pits, Cathedral of St. Vincent, Federal Palace and floral displays. Then on to Montreux for three nights. Visit Chillon Castle on Lake Geneva, enjoy time in Gstaad and Gruyere, where you will experience fashionable ski resorts and charming alpine villages and a highlight cruise on Lake Geneva will give you a unique perspective.

Gain elevation as you journey through the upper Rhone Valley, spotting rocky peaks and castles, along the road to the traffic free resort of Zermatt. A free day could include a trip up the Matterhorn! Cross the Simplon Pass and take a brief detour into the lake district of Italy before heading back into Switzerland for a night in Lugano. Hobnob with the jet set crowd while staying in ritzy St. Moritz. Take a ride on the Bernina Express train or, use your included Mountain Railways Pass, which provides free travel on all cable cars, funiculars and chairlifts.

Next, it’s all aboard the Glacier Express for an unforgettable trip across 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels. Enjoy breath-taking views of the Matterhorn and surrounding Alps before re-joining your coach and continuing on to stay “between the lakes” at Interlaken. During your time in Interlaken travel to the Grindelwald Valley and delight in Swiss country culture before heading back to Zurich for one final night that includes a festive Signature Dining farewell dinner featuring  typical Swiss cuisine and wine before you bid Adieu to Switzerland!
