Stay in Chur and Lucerne and explore with a First Class Swiss Travel Pass. Travellers can reach snowy peaks up close by train – no skis required! Departing 13 February 2024, priced from £2,650pp (two sharing) including Standard Class rail travel to/from Switzerland, First Class Swiss Travel Pass, B&B Hotel accommodation in Chur, Lucerne and Cologne, an evening meal in a dining car and the services of a UK tour leader.
