The Bernina Express is the highest railway in the Alps. The route passes through tunnels and across bridges, reaching a height of 2,253 metres above sea level, before a steep descent towards the Italian border and the swaying palms of Tirano. A particular highlight during the journey is the Brusio spiral viaduct, a true masterpiece of bridge engineering. We are staying in the beautiful mountain village of Klosters, which has long been the winter destination for the British royal family. This is a high alpine adventure you won’t forget.
