Full description
Spend a full-day traveling to St. Moritz on this exciting rail journey! The Bernina is one of Switzerland's most scenic railways, climbing more than 1,800 meters, making it the steepest railway journey in the world.

Round-trip transfer from Milan is included in the tour. Your rail journey begins in Tirano, Italy, and takes you all the way to the world-renowned Swiss mountain resort of St. Moritz. Tirano is a picturesque Mediterranean town in a mountain setting dotted with palms and oleanders.

The train ride will take you from an altitude of 429 meters up to 1,829 meters! You’ll cross the spiraling viaduct at Brusio and the Bernina Pass to the alpine valley known as the Engadin.

On this 2 hour 30 minute journey you’ll marvel at the scenery of the Alps. UNESCO named the Bernina route a world heritage site. You’ll see monumental glaciers, cross steep gorges, and pass through tunnels under some of the area’s most massive mountains.
