What You Can Expect

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.

The Swiss Alps Bernina Express Rail was an amazing train ride! I took this tour the end of January and the weather was amazing! It was clear and sunny and the sights were beautiful! We were able to open the windows during the ride and take some amazing pictures. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable and I had no problem with him translating back and forth from English to Spanish. I was glad I read most of the reviews prior to taking this tour because I was prepared with a blanket for when the windows were open, and I had drinks and snacks for the long bus ride. I would highly recommend this tour, but please read the comments and don't complain about the long bus ride or not enough time to shop or sightsee...this tour is solely based on the fantastic rail tour through the alps. Enjoy!

Excellent. I was travelling with my parents, my dad is elderly and has always dreamed of being amongst the mountains, it was one of the best trips of his life.

The Alps! I took the tour during winter and seeing the skiers go down the slopes, breathing the mountain air, and viewing the vistas, and the snow packed villages, WOW! This was truly memorable!

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and not only was she friendly, she was very patient with all of the passengers. Train up to the Alps was long but breathtaking however bus ride down to Milan can be quite torturing as it was a winding and bumpy ride


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Train ride was the highlight
Wish more time to spend at St Moritz
Train arrived a little late, we were dismissed at the meeting point at 3:37 and we had to be back there by 4. So hardly time to go explore.
The lunch that was recommended was less than desirable. Another party of +30 was there
