Thanks so much for your reply. We were also hoping you could tell us if the Swiss pass would be helpful for our trip. Here is what I was thinking about for the first let of our trip, so please let me know if this works.
Day 1. Arrive in Montreaux (not sure and we will likely be coming from Lake Maggiore: castle of Chillon and Rochers-de-Naye. How early do we have to arrive to be able to fit both in to one day? Do you have any other recommendations in Montreaux? We love being on the water and saw boat rides are also an option. We will spend the night in Montreaux. Will the Swiss pass help with any of these activities?
Day 2: Leave Montreaux and arrive in Interlaken. I saw on someone elses thread that there were other areas that were recommended for scenery. We are looking to hike or some outdoor activity in the Interlaken region and are very open to suggestions. I read a post about some underground waterfalls that sounded great, but wanted your opinion. Spend night in Interlaken.
Day 3: Leave Interlaken and arrive in Luzern. We are hoping to do the Cograilway to Pilatus Klum. It sounds like it is a full day, but again wanted to see if this would work and if the pass would help cut down costs.
Day 4: Leave Luzern and head to St. Moritz. This seemed like a full day on the train, so we will not likely do anything. We plan to spend the night in St. Moritz and then wanted to go hiking the next day. Any suggestions? If needed, we can spend another night here and then head out to Tirano, then on to Lugano via the Bernina Express. My questions are if from Lugano do you think we should spend the night and hike around Lugano the next day or continue on to Zermitt for views and hikes of Matterhorn? Also again, will the Swiss pass help with any of the costs.
This will cover about 5-7 days. We have not booked anything as of yet because we are still trying to figure out what will work for this trip. We have never been to Switzerland and although there is a lot we want to do, we want to make sure it is possible.
Thanks again for your help.
