In the morning, you'll awaken to superb Alpine views, which you can admire as you enjoy a delicious breakfast in your cabin. Spend your morning relaxing and taking in the incredible vistas before a mouth-watering three-course lunch in one of the restaurant cars followed by afternoon tea in the comfort of your cabin.
