Magical Switzerland – Small Group, Winter 2021 2022 Small Group
Experience the magic of Switzerland at Christmas, journeying from Lucerne to Brig, and on to Geneva. Start your Swiss adventure in Lucerne, a stunning 14th century fortress city sitting on a lakeshore and surrounded by snowcapped forests. Voyage through the frosted peaks and frozen waterfalls of the Grison Alps to the Alpine ski resort of St Moritz-a retreat frequented by royalty and James Bond in the Spy Who Loved Me. Board the Glacier Express to Brig and adventure through the heart of the Swiss Alps in the Albula Pass tunnel, before crossing the skyscraping Landwasser Viaduct and descending through the Rhône Valley. Explore the car free, cobbled streets of Zermatt Village at the foot of Mount Matterhorn and in the Swiss capital, enjoy a sumptuous Geneva fondue dinner at Le Petit Chalet.
