2. From Basel: Glacier Express Day-trip with Private Guide

Meet your tour guide at a pre-arranged time in the lobby of your hotel. Your guide will transfer you to the train station in Basel, where you will board an intercity train. This will take you via Zürich and along Lake Zürich to the south east of Switzerland. When you arrive in Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland, you will have the opportunity for a short walk around, schedule times depending. Back at the train station, you will take your seat in the panoramic train. The train departs at approximately 11:45am, at which time the lunch service will start. Pass through the famous Rhine gorge heading to Disentis, listening to audio comments on a headset. Simply ask your guide about availability. In Disentis, the train will start to climb to 2033m above sea level into a rough alpine landscape. After passing a lighthouse, the train will begin its descent on a steep track down to Andermatt, a village 1400m above sea level. The train will stop in Andermatt for 15 minutes, which gives you the chance to stop, stretch your legs, and breathe in the fresh Swiss air. The journey will continue through the 15km long "Furka" base tunnel, constructed in 1982 to save travel time from Andermatt to Brig. Your train will continue through the “Goms” valley in direction of Brig. This valley is known as a destination for summer hiking and winter sports. The time to Brig is approximately two hours. Once there, you will again have the opportunity to exit the train for a walk through the pedestrian zone and the palace "Stockalper".   Your guide will lead you to the right train in Brig, where you will board an intercity train.

To do ..... I was only disappointed by the city of Saint Moritz; while the panorama seen from the train, both on the outward and return journeys, is beautiful as is the experience made in the CABLE CAR to climb to the Monte Diavolezza Refuge.

very nice. we have added the supplement for the panoramic view for one route ... but to take pictures, the regional one is better

It is the most spectacular train in the world. Every view was like a postcard. Es el tren más espectacular que jamás he estado.

You can bring snowshoes or snowboarding and skis up the mountain and make stops along the railway to sight see.

A day to remember for the colors of autumn and the snow
