Itinerary

Overview

Travel on our flight inclusive package from London Heathrow to Zurich airport, where a coach transfer will be included on our specific arrival and departure dates. On arrival, your included transfer will take approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes. Alternatively, you may prefer to make your own way to Zurich airport, where rail transfers will be included on our specific arrival and departure dates. This will allow you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery as you travel alongside Lake Thun and into the Bernese Overland. At Wengen your luggage will be collected from the mountain railway station by the hotel, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the station itself. At the start of your Bridge holiday you’ll be invited to join our Bridge director and host for a welcome meeting in the hotel. Any single travellers will have the opportunity to find a partner for the Bridge room. Our Bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing Bridge, we try to include interesting Bridge seminars, hosted by your Bridge Director. Your duplicate Bridge will be available every evening between 7.45pm and 11.15pm and we endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week Bridge break. Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2.30pm and 4.45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams. During your Bridge holiday nothing is obligatory and you can play in as many, or as few, Bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our Bridge programmes also allow time to relax and the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
