A fantastic adventure, taking in some of the highlights of both Austria and Switzerland and a spectacular ride on the panoramic Glacier Express through outstanding mountain scenery.

 

 

ST ANTON AM ARLBERG is a charming village which has still maintained its genuine ambiance and Tirolean hospitality. There is plenty to see and do, so on your free day relax and unwind in the crisp clean mountain air. Or perhaps use the ST ANTON SUMMER ACCESS CARD to explore by local bus, cable cars and chair lifts.

 

The SILVRETTA HOCHALPENSTRASSE is one of the most beautiful and popular panoramic Alpine roads. It covers 22km around 34 bends, passing Lakes Silvretta and Vermunt and climbs the Bielerhöhe Pass at a height of over 2,000 metres. The scenery is unforgettable and a highlight of this holiday.

 

Our journey into Switzerland first takes us to Davos where you board the GLACIER EXPRESS for the journey to Brig. This stunning train ride takes you through spectacular mountain scenery, delightful valleys, tunnels and bridges, passing mountain streams, lush meadows and picturesque villages. The train will also cross the Oberalp Pass which, at over 2,000 metres, is the highest point of the railway.

At Brig you rejoin the coach and continue to Eurotel Victoria in the peaceful village of Villars-Sur-Ollon our base for the next two nights.

 

VILLARS-SUR-OLLON is a pretty ski resort situated on a ‘balcony’ above the Rhone Valley where fantastic views extend in all directions! Exploring the village is made easy with your VILLARS ACCESS CARD, this allows you to use the local trains, trams, buses and gondola lifts for unrestricted views of Lake Geneva & Mont Blanc.
