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

The railway journey from St Moritz over the Bernina Pass to Tirano is one of the great trips by train. Wild landscapes, glaciers, mountains, alpine meadows all add to the attraction of this journey. Trains are clean, comfortable and run to time! Highly recommended.

This was an amazing trip! Although it was a rainy day the sun came out when we were at the highest point and the views cleared. Such stunning scenery. We had booked seats on the Bernina Express but in the end went on the normal train as it was a better connection with the rest if journey. The only difference... More

The area is almost overwhelming, looking at the mountains and seeing the pass that was snowcapped. I was in awe of the whole area; we have nothing like it in New England.

Fantastic. We even had 2 foot of snow overnight to make the scenery more spectacular. If you've never done this you must. A bucket list definite.
