COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Travel to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing then head to the Mercure Hotel Saabrucken Sud, Germany, for our overnight stay making suitable comfort stops. Dinner is included this evening.
DAY 2 After breakfast check out of the overnight hotel and travel via Basel to our main stay hotel in Davos, Switzerland. We stop for lunch to be purchased along the way, arriving in time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 3 Today we have a full day at leisure. The included ‘Davos Card’ permits free and unlimited use of all local transport and we suggest a trip on the Schwarzalp Mountain Railway for lunch in the panoramic restaurant followed by a visit to the Alpine Garden (price not included). Davos is the highest city in Europe and it gained its international attention in the early 20th century as a health and wellness town. Visitors will find excellent shopping with numerous boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
DAY 4 After breakfast travel to Klosters, nestling in what has remained the rural part of the Prättigau boasting a romantic-like atmosphere. Often paired with Davos, 12km away, it may surprise to find that Klosters is in the valley at 1194m, while Davos is up high at 1560m. Klosters offers a unique combination of a renowned mountain resort, the British heir to the throne Prince Charles is a regular guest, and the idyll of an unspoilt Graubünden village. Afterwards travel to Chur. This charming, historic town has cobbled streets, secret courtyards and a large cathedral. We have time here to explore the area before returning to Davos via Filisur and the verdant Albula Pass.
DAY 5 After breakfast we join our driver for a short drive to Davos Platz where we board the Bernina Express at 09:50. The Bernina Express train route takes us through incredible alpine landscapes and a UNESCO World Heritage Site to Italy. Think of all the clichés about the beauty of scenic train travel and multiply them by 1000. There are refreshment facilities available as well as on board commentary. Sit back, relax and enjoy the twists, turns and views from the panoramic windows and arrive in Tirano, Italy at approx. 13:30. On arrival in Tirano, Italy enjoy a little time at leisure before joining the coach and travelling back to Davos by road, with a fresh perspective on the awesome scenery.
DAY 6 After breakfast enjoy a morning excursion to St Moritz. Elegant and chic, it lies in the middle of a lake-dotted landscape and offers one of the sunniest climates in all Switzerland. Return to Davos for an afternoon at leisure.
DAY 7 After breakfast check out of the main stay hotel and travel to France for our overnight stay at the Mercure Forbach Centre, making suitable comfort stops along the way. Dinner is included at our overnight hotel this evening.
DAY 8 After breakfast return to Calais for the Eurotunnel crossing, making suitable comfort stops along the way with time to purchase lunch. Arrive back to home area early evening.
