New High-Speed Rail Service From The UK To The Alps

ski trainWhether you're a ski fanatic or simply a lover of natural beauty, the Swiss Alps are a destination on many people's bucket lists. Now there's a new way to get there.

A new partnership between Eurostar and Lyria, a high-speed Swiss train operator, brings us a day-long journey from London to Switzerland offered every Saturday from December 22 to April 13. The train zips along at over 300 kilometers per hour, making the trip a quick and simple daylong affair.

Stop at Aigle, Martigny, Visp and Brig or change trains in Lille to access the resort towns of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Villars and many others. The French resort towns of Chamonix and Portes du Soleil.
are also accessible.

The journey is even fairly affordable ... just £189 in standard, and first class on Lyria from £299. Thanks to A Luxury Travel Blog for alerting us!
