Bernina Express day excursion from Zurich

Your private guide will meet you before the tour at your Hotel or Apartment in Zurich. Start your day without any worries.

Experience an a-one-of-a-kind journey on board the Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano. Travel from Glaciers to Palms in a half day.

We leave Zurich central station by 7 AM and travel to Chur where we board the Bernina Express. The highest railway across the Alps climbs to the glaciers before descending to the italian village Tirano. 55 Tunnels, over 150 bridges, and a spectacular scenery awaits you on this Unesco World Heritage train line. Pass over the great Landwasserviadukt and the Brusio Circular Viaduct, a masterpiece of engineering.

Around 1 PM we arrive in Tirano. You will have a 1-hour break in this picturesque Italian village for lunch before boarding the train or bus for our journey back to Zurich.

On our way back we have two choices, take back the train the same route or in summer months a panorama-bus ride through Italy and southern Switzerland to Lugano from where we return by train.

Limited availability: As the train sells out weeks before departure and the bus even months, please contact us with your preferred travel date(s) as soon as possible, and we tell you the possibilities for that day.

We return to Zurich between 8 - 11 PM depending
on choice/availability of return journey. Your guide will take you to your Hotel or Apartment.
