My husband and I are arriving in Zurich in mid-September for two weeks of hiking (formerly quite fit but now walking in our 60's). We need to know which travel pass would be most cost effective. We arrive in Zurich and will travel to Pontresina, Guarda, and Scoul and then back to Zurich. If there are funiculars to help us up or down to hike, we might opt to take those as well.

Thank you!

Hi DeviDasi!

Which pass is best depends on all details of your itinerary. Here are some options to look into. If you want to calculate which is most economical, please refer to this guide:

  • a Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi, allowing for a free trip from Zurich Airport to the Engadine and back, plus a 50% discount on further trips. Please find details, including validity information and purchase options, at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstransferticket. Mind to select the Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi from the drop-down list at the right at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstransferticket/pric e when looking for prices and retailers;
  • a 15 day Swiss Travel Pass if you intend to make longer day trips too and if you prefer the idea of flexible, unlimited traveling.

Note that quite some hotels in the Upper Engadine allow free use of regional mountain transportation if you book at least 2 nights. I'm not sure if your Pontresina hotel is booked yet, but if not, this list of participating hotels may be interesting: www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/free-mountain-trips-with-hotel-bookings-st-moritz.
