Of course there are lots and lots of options, but here's a suggestion:
- Book an apartment for a week in the Upper Engadine region, which is perfect to relax and enjoy the snow, do some hiking or sledging and visiting viewing points. You can consider the towns of St. Moritz, Celerina, Samedan, Bever, La Punt Chamues-ch, Zuoz and Pontresina for example. Rentals can be found here.
- Then take the Glacier Express to Zermatt and spend 2-3 nights there. This is an "upper class" car free Winter sports resort which is quite unique. Find hotels here.
- Then take the train to Brig, switch to the local train via Goppenstein and Kandersteg to Bern. Spend a few hours or a night in Bern. Hotels are here.
- Travel to Basel and switch to the TGV Lyria to Paris there.
If you want a once in a life time experience then choose 1st class travel in the Glacier Express and enjoy lunch in the train restaurant.
A Swiss Flexi Pass
or Swiss Pass
would fit the suggested itinerary.
I hope this helps!
