7. Scenic train ride
Glacier Express, Switzerland
Connecting two of Switzerland’s most scenic mountain resorts, Zermatt and St Moritz, the Glacier Express is the most relaxing way to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Swiss Alps. Traveling eastward from Zermatt, the day-long trip will take you through 91 tunnels and over 291 bridges as it rolls past southern Switzerland’s alpine meadows, pristine mountain lakes and picture-perfect hamlets.
Highlights of the journey include Oberalp Pass, the highest point on the ride at 6,706 feet. Another is the famous Landwasser Viaduct—a magnificent six-arch structure standing 200 feet and plunging into a tunnel cut straight into the mountainside.
