For anyone who loves scenery or riding behind steam engines this is a real must.
The journey from Realp to Oberwald, along the Furka Pass, has it all - excellent scenery - including the Rhone Glacier, spotless engines and carriages and polite, enthusiastic staff.
Throw in a stop for refreshments at Furka ( with the opportunity to buy local produce as well) and you have a perfect day out.
However, as the railway only runs for about 72 days a year (owing to snow etc) advance booking is absolutely necessary for the full journey trains - so don't just turn up and expect to travel. We booked in April for a trip in September.
Don't forget to take your camera !
