Palm Express — from St Moritz to Lugano

Shortly after crossing the Maloja Pass (1,815 m a.s.l.), the route winds down into the Bergell Valley, where the intact village scenes and the stately chestnut forests hint at a Mediterranean influence. At Castasegna the train crosses into Italy, arriving at the market town of Chiavenna shortly afterwards, and then continuing past Lake Mezzola on the way to Lake Como with its many holiday resorts. The route passes Menaggio, and after affording superb lake views, also passes Lake Lugano and Gandria as it enters Switzerland. Shortly afterwards the train makes its final stop - at the vibrant city of Lugano in Ticino, marking the end of this interesting and fascinating journey.

Palm Express

The PostBus route enables you to experience an unforgettable journey from the glaciers of the Engadine to the palms of Lugano - with a side trip to Italy. Whether it is the deep blue lakes of the Upper Engadine, sparsely-wooded larch forests and snow-capped mountain peaks, or the quaint villages with their typical Engadine houses, guests will marvel at the rich diversity of the landscape.
