2) St. Moritz- Lucerne (where we will stay hosted)

3) Lucerne-Zurich (go and back)

Hi binhopires and welcome to MySwissAlps!

As you are in several regions of Switzerland, I would guess that the Swiss Travel Pass is the best option for you to cover most if not all of your rail travel. Read about the Swiss Travel Pass here.

To know for sure, what is the most economical rail pass for you, you'll need to do the math on the trip costs you will make and then you can compare ticket and pass prices. We have a web page here to help you with this: How to choose the best rail pass.

You'll need to make seat reservations for the Bernina Express train as well as the Gotthard Panorama Express train if you choose to take it. Find companies to make reservations on the above links (under the packages tab).
