Join us for an unforgettable alpine adventure, taking you from the emerald green hills and meadows of our cosy resort to marvel at a breathtaking winter wonderland. Staying in the mountain village of Mürren, which nestles among the Swiss Alps and is only accessible by cable car, we enjoy some of Switzerland’s most spectacular scenery as we travel along dramatic railways. The first tunnels through the mighty north face of the Eiger and along the slopes of the Mönch to reach the Top of Europe – a high alpine world of ice, snow and rock. We then journey to the summit of Mount Schilthorn for a special James Bond lunch surrounded by hundreds of snowcapped peaks. With half board accommodation and all excursions included, this is a great way to discover the chocolate-box charm of the Swiss Alps.

DAY 1: LONDON – BASEL

We journey aboard Eurostar to Paris and continue by TGV to Strasbourg, where we take the train to Basel for our overnight stay. This beautiful Swiss city lies on the banks of the Rhine river, at the point where the countries of Switzerland, France and Germany meet.

DAY 2: BASEL TO MÜRREN

Travelling by rail and cableway, we reach the car-free mountain village of Mürren which is our base for the next six nights. The views here are spectacular, stretching out across a deep valley to the famous rock faces and glaciers of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, with the mighty Schilthorn towering above.

DAY 3 & 4: MÜRREN

Enjoy plenty of free time in Mürren, starting with our included village tour. Mürren lies on a terrace 1,650 metres above the Lauterbrunnen valley, making it the highest continually inhabited village in the region. You can enjoy magnificent views at almost every turn and the absence of traffic makes it all the more peaceful. If you want to explore further afield, there are around 200 kilometres of walking trails which branch out from the village and are well signposted, taking you up or down the valley with several trains and lifts to help.

DAY 5: JUNGFRAUJOCH – TOP OF EUROPE

We travel to Kleine Scheidegg for an included journey on the Jungfrau Railway, which tunnels through the mountains of the Eiger and along the slope of the Mönch to deliver you to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. At 3,454 metres, this is Europe’s highest altitude railway station where you can enjoy breathtaking views. There are two stops along the way for you to marvel at the mountainous world before reaching the top, where there are further viewing platforms on the Aletsch glacier or in the Ice Palace.

DAY 6: TRÜMMELBACH FALLS

The Lauterbrunnen valley is often called the valley of 72 waterfalls, one of which we visit today – the Trümmelbach Falls. These are the largest subterranean waterfalls in Europe and the only glacier waterfalls in the world that are accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. It’s a spectacular place to visit.

DAY 7: SCHILTHORN & ALLMENDHUBEL

Today’s excursion takes you by cable car to the summit of the Schilthorn, where you can enjoy amazing 360° views of more than 200 mountains, including the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau – on a clear day you may even catch a glimpse of Mont Blanc. Schilthorn achieved world fame when scenes for the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service were shot here, featuring the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria. We visit the restaurant for an exclusive James Bond lunch, before taking the funicular to Allmendhubel – a mountain which overlooks our resort of Mürren.

DAY 8: MÜRREN – LONDON

We check out of our hotel after breakfast and retrace our route to Paris, where we join Eurostar for the return to London.
