Hi

i want to know about possible inclusion of places from leysin in 1 day as i have to return at leysin everyday, as i am rci member and already booked apartment at Leysin .

we plan to buy Swiss travel pass fror 8 day

My questions are

1, is train from aigle to leysin feydey is included in swiss travel pass(free) ? Or it is discounted ?

2, is it possible to do excursion to junfrau and Mt. Titlis and Glacier 3000 on different day from Leysin ?

Hi Pilu74 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. Here is an overview on the Swiss Travel Pass - including what routes are covered and where to buy.
    Aigle to Leysin is covered as you can see on the PDF map on the "what routes are covered" link above.
  2. The Glacier 3000 will be an easy trip to cover - check the timetable for schedules.
    Both Jungfraujoch and Mt. Titlis are about 5 hours each way however. So yes, I would stay at Luzern and Interlaken if you plan to visit those destinations.
  3. We don't make itineraries here, but I think with the links above, along with the timetable for trains I mentioned should help you create your own - if you have further questions don't hesitate to ask.

regards,
Lucas

Yes, it is free. Download the PDF map from the page linked below. It will show you where the Swiss Travel Pass is valid. Red lines are trains, yellow lines are buses, black lines are cable cars and white lines are boats. Solid lines indicate free travel, dotted lines indicate discounted travel. (Dashed lines indicate tunnels, nothing to do with pass coverage.)

>> is it possible to do excursion to junfrau and Mt. Titlis and Glacier 3000 on different day from Leysin ?

Leysin to the Jungfraujoch takes between 5.0 and 5.5 hours each way, and Leysin to Mt Titlis takes 5.5 hours each way. Only you can decide whether that amount of travel is acceptable, or whether it would ruin your holiday ;-)

Glacier 3000 is much closer to Leysin, but all facilites are closed due to maintenance from 09 Oct to 27 Oct 2017.

>> if above places are not possible then is it better idea to stay one night at interlaken and one night at lucerne ?

Yes, I think it would be better to spend at least one night each at Interlaken and Luzern if you want to visit the Jungfraujoch and Titlis. But you will still have a very long journey back to Leysin the following day.

We don't make itineraries for people here. When you have put your own itinerary together, we can comment on it.

If I were you, I would concentrate on the Lake Geneva region, which is within a reasonable distance of Leysin. There is plenty to do there. However, late October is low season. You might find mountain transport is closed for maintenance, and boat services on Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) will also be extremely limited.

Use the SBB (Swiss Railways) timetable to see how long it would take you to travel to the places you would like to go, and to confirm that the transport to take you there is operating on the day you plan to go.
