Take a ride on the Green Train of the Alps on a spectacular journey on the Swiss Alps from Milan. Cross the lake of Thun on a cruise boat to reach the enchanted village of Interlaken.
Depart Milan on a high-speed train for the town of Domodossola, the last Italian frontier before the Swiss border. Here begins your adventure on the “Green Train of the Alps!”
The train takes you on a journey through the Simplon Pass, one of the most beautiful crossings in Switzerland. Cutting between the alps, your knowledgeable English-speaking guide will introduce you to the secrets of mountains and the valleys as they appear before your eyes.
After around 2 hours of breath-taking panoramas, we arrive in Spiez, on the shores of Lake Thun. Here we stop for a spot of lunch (not included), before departing on our cruise to Interlaken, on a state-of-the-art steamboat.
Whilst crossing the lake, take a moment to snap some pictures of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau, 3 famous mountains whose recognizable shapes reflect in the light blue water of the lake.
Once in the Interlaken, enjoy time to explore the picturesque architecture or take a walk around the shore where you can marvel at the hang gliders peacefully soaring over the snow-capped Alps in the distance. Aside from beautiful views, don’t forget to try some of the world’s finest Swiss chocolate at one of the many local specialty chocolatiers that dot the town.
In the late afternoon, we take the train back to Domodossola, before returning to Milan on an air-conditioned coach.
