Give St Moritz a miss

Don’t bother yourself with the poseurs in St. Moritz. Instead watch them fall off their skis as you chug past aboard the Glacier Express. Travelling between the upmarket resorts of St Moritz and Zermatt, the seven and a half hour journey takes you over 291 bridges, through 91 tunnels and across the spectacular 2,000m Oberalp Pass, which definitely calls for a nerve settling shot of Jaeger – call in the St. Bernards.

A first-class Glacier Express ticket costs €147. But save yourself a few quid and go second class, at €88 - the mountains looks the same. If you’ve still not had enough of mountain peaks then book a bed at the Kulmhotel Gornergrat, Switzerland’s highest hotel. You’ll get views over 29 peaks plus the purest air imaginable. Then all you need to do is brace yourself for the Ryanair flight home. glacierexpress.ch
