Gotthard Panorama Express 2nd class

The Gotthard Panorama Express links two of Switzerland's most attractive regions: Central Switzerland and Ticino. The trip starts in Lucerne as you board a nostalgic paddle steamer or motor vessel and cruise to Flüelen on Lake Lucerne in about 3 1/2 hours. You then join the special 1st class only (upgrade included) Panoramic Train for the amazing trip to Lugano. You can, of course, journey from Lugano ending in Lucerne - we will contact you asking for the date and direction required.

While you enjoy a hot or cold dish in the restaurant, you can watch sleepy bays, picturesque villages and historic landmarks such as the Rötli and the Tellsplatte glide silently by on the starboard and port side. In Flüelen, only a few steps away from the pier, our guests board air-conditioned cars of the Swiss Federal Railways. The trip continues through the awesome Reuss Valley with its deep ravines and precipitous cliffs. The world-famous Gotthard line swiftly climbs from 470 to about 1100 metres above sea level to finally enter the 15-kilometer long Gotthard tunnel in Göschenen, Europe's most important north/south gateway. Countless spiral and horseshoe tunnels, galleries and bridges testify to the remarkable achievements of the men who built this masterpiece of civil engineering. Then, after the 10-minute tunnel passage, you'll arrive in Ticino. In the Leventina Valley, the Gotthard Panorama Express crosses breathtaking cantilevered bridges and passes charming villages on its way to Bellinzona. From here, the next leg is to Lugano: It will be up to you to decide.
