Swiss Alps Bernina Express Rail Tour from Milan

Bernina Express Rail Tour to the Swiss Alps from Milan

Well known by its moniker ‘the Little Red Train,’ the Bernina Express was designed to climb the Swiss Alps with ease. A testament to engineering work completed more than a century ago, the train is still able to complete the cliff-clinging Bernina Pass on a route that now has UNESCO World Heritage status.

Travel from Milan to Switzerland in the morning, and relax on your coach journey to Tirano. After some free time in the town, board the Bernina Express and gaze out of your window as the historic train passes through the idyllic stretches of Northern Italy and the Swiss Alps.

Ride over the spiral viaduct of Brusio, and along the Bernina Pass to Engadin. After 2.5 hours on board, watch the scenery change from windswept gorges and snow-clad glaciers to the chic chalets of St Moritz.

Hop off the train to enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time in the town. An elegant vacation spot that’s popular for winter sports, St Moritz has a bounty of attractions to keep you busy. Stroll the lake, ogle the snow-specked mountains that ring the town, enjoy lunch or browse the local chocolatiers to sample Swiss chocolate. All food is at your own expense.

In the early evening, return to Milan by coach. Your tour of Northern Italy and Switzerland finishes with a drop-off at the start point.

We really enjoyed this trip ... exactly as advertised. Our tour guide was awesome.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Wonderful tour. It would have been nice to know that it was off season for St. Moritz and there was only one store open. Train ride was beautiful with the snow storm! Ride back in the bus down the mountain was nerve racking!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Found this tour excellent. Both the guide and driver were both amazing. Loved the train ride and all the information given along the way by our guide. Could not fault the day. Great experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Long day, but worth it. Breathtaking scenery including riding through the snow-covered Alps on the very smooth riding BerninaTrain. We were between seasons in St. Moritz which was essentially closed except for a few chocolate stores, although the setting and scenery were beautiful. The tour got even better when we returned by bus through the Moloya pass. Our guide Eddie was excellent.Highly recommended.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This was a long day and quite tiring but very worthwhile. The scenery was breathtaking. Our guide Luigi was wonderful. There isn't a great deal of time in St Moritz but enough to buy some chocolates and have a wander around the streets or lake. If you're wanting extended time in places then tours aren't for you.
