Ride the Swiss Glacier Express in Luxury

The Glacier Express is a route running between St Moritz and Zermatt in Switzerland is on more train travelers lists than you could even imagine for a reason. Take a look at a map and you will realize why, as it leads you straight through some of the best scenery in the Alps.

From the beginning, you’re dropped right into a snowglobe fairytale as both the St Moritz and Zermatt train stations are really very scenic. Along the 8-hr journey, you will see the Matterhorn, Oberalp Pass, and the Landwasser Viaduct. While the views are beautiful from the existing 1st and 2nd class seats, the operator has added a whole new class for some added luxury, The Excellence Class.

In the new ticket level, travelers will be treated to a 7-course meal served alongside champagne, panoramic views, concierge service, and personal tablet use.

The Excellence seats are capped at 20 passengers per ride. Prices for a 1-way ticket are currently just under $700.

The benefits

A world-class dinner and drinks, unbeatable views, and personal space on an 8-hour journey via what is technically considered public transportation. It is worth the cost.
