2 nights Engadine | Bernina Express

Individual journey via the Unesco World Heritage route of the Albula line to the Engadine. Welcome to your Private Selection Hotel, the newly renovated Cresta Palace Hotel in Celerina. Discover the world of experiences around your hotel, take a walk to the deep-clear Stazersee lake or to the Morteratsch alpine cheese dairy, relax in the hotel's wellness and spa area or enjoy cake and coffee on the sun terrace. In the evening, the kitchen team will spoil you with a gourmet menu in 4 courses.

Time for your railway adventure: After a hearty breakfast with regional products, you meander on the Bernina line up to the "roof of the Rhaetian Railway", the Ospizio Bernina at 2253 m.a.s.l. With a gradient of up to 70 per thousand, you dive into the fascinating ice world of the Morteratsch and Palü glaciers. Around the world-famous Montebello curve, you continue into the Puschlav. Enjoy a 100%Valposchiavo lunch in Poschiavo, as the name promises, prepared from 100% local ingredients! How about a plate of pizzoccheri and a glass of Veltliner wine, for example? Or continue on to Tirano, where palazzi and gelati invite you to enjoy the Italianità.

3 nights at Lago di Lugano | Palm Express

On your 3rd day of travel, the Palm Express takes you on a journey of around four hours from the glaciers in the Engadine to the palm trees on Lago di Lugano. From St. Moritz, the route takes you over the Maloja Pass and through Bergell to Chiavenna in Italy. Passing the deep blue lakes Lago di Mezzola and Lago di Como and their cozy holiday villages, you will travel by yellow bus directly to your accommodation, the Parco San Marco Lifestyle Beach Resort (bus stop in front of the hotel!). Enjoy 3 days of Mediterranean feeling and relaxation under palm trees on the beach of Lago di Lugano: rooms with lake view and private beach (only for hotel guests) included!
