One Day Train Trip

Our group of five adults have organised a one day travel pass for Tuesday July 30th.
We will be starting and finishing in Lugano.
The pass covers all public transport in Switzerland and even things like the Rigi Railway/Cable Car.
I am wondering what suggestions you might have for routes we should try and cover.
We are looking for the most interesting journeys as opposed to arriving at a specific endpoint.
So, extra points for scenery, idiosyncratic stations/changeovers and interesting
trains/buses (fast or slow).
Loss of points for journeys that are not feasible from Lugano and back in a day.

Lugano-Locarno-Cento-Valli-Domodossola-Lausanne-Lucerne (Boat)-Fluellen-Locarno-Lugano.


It takes about 10-12 hours

If you use "The Glacier Experess" their will be a supplement, but their are plenty of other very similar trains using exacxt same rolling stock and exact same tracks doing exact same route, without a supplement.....


I don't think you could do this trip in a day, the Glacier Express is about 8 hours long already.


You may manage Lugano-Tirano (Post Bus) Bernina express to St. Moritz - Chur/Zurich to Lugano, but it would be a long day....

Re: One Day Train Trip

Brig - Chur is 4h, 4m. The entire trip Zermatt-St. Moritz is over 8 hours.

An alternative would go via Andermatt and connect to the GEX there.
