Just one week earlier there had been an unseasonable snowfall over the Alps and as the train snaked its way up the valley past small villages and grazing cattle the land became blanketed in snow. A bright cloudless sky overhead and the gentle sway of the carriage made this one of the most effortless and spectacular trips I have made.... More

Spectacular views and a very comfortable ride. When leaving Chur the scenery is not all that great but about half an hour into the trip that changes! At the summit the train stops for about 20 minutes and you have the opportunity to stretch the legs and have some refreshments in the Café/restaurant, while overlooking some waterfalls and snow, till...

The train ride to the Bernina pass and down the other side to Tirano was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been

This is a great panoramic train where you can see how wonderful has been the God´s creations. The mountains in the Alps are truly amazing and can´t even wonder what you are seeing. The villages settled in the valleys are like a dream of peaceful. It is very unbelievable how the viaducts were build in some rocky places and how... More

This was a special trip, as a group it was a very pleasant way to enjoy a very scenic part of Switzerland. Would go again, probably in Summer next time.

There is just one way to describe this Pass and this is magnificent. As far as I am concerned, it in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm glad that I've seen it.

My wife and I had been in Bormio and were heading to Milano Malpensa for the next leg of a recent journey and a little bit of online exploring highlighted the Bernina Pass as an alternative route. The side-trip adds less than an hour onto the journey but the views are stunning!! Pros: Great road (the Swiss do everything well),... More
