Swiss Trains & the Italian Lake District with National Geographic Expeditions


Swiss trains?

The best in the world.

National Geographic Expeditions?

A guaranteed way to enjoy group travel with an expert who takes you inside a destination.

So I’m thrilled that National Geographic Expeditions has asked me to take two groups of travelers on National Geographic Expeditions trips to Switzerland next summer.

On Swiss Trains and the Italian Lake District, you’ll experience the Alps and the beautiful lake of Northern Italy, as well as ride on some of Switzerland’s legendary trains, including the Glacier Express and the Bernina Express.

From the twisted peak of the Matterhorn to the breathtaking vistas of the Bernina Pass, you’ll soar high above Zermatt in a gondola, and enjoy a choice of hikes, walks, and tram rides through beautiful mountain landscapes. Then cross the Alps into Italy and cap off the trip on the shores of stunning Lake Como.

Departure dates are July 10-19, 2015 and July 24-August 2, 2015.
