Glitz, glamour, golf & the Glacier Express

Published:

If you’re seeking spectacular golf with one of the world’s most dramatic railway journeys, the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz and The Chedi Andermatt have linked up with the Glacier Express to offer a unique Luxury Golf Express package.

This most memorable of breaks combines staying in two of Switzerland’s most luxurious hotels, golf in glorious Alpine settings and a spectacular train ride between the two glamorous mountain resorts.

Whilst staying at the legendary Kulm Hotel St. Moritz ((www.kulm.com) for two nights on a half -board basis, golfers will enjoy 18 holes at Switzerland’s oldest golf course, Samedan, set in classic open parkland, and the nearby course at Zuoz with its undulating tree-lined fairways, as well as a round on the 9-hole Kulm Golf St. Moritz set within the hotel’s extensive grounds.  Guests will also have complimentary access to the Kulm Spa St. Moritz for the duration of their stay and enjoy a 50-minute massage.

On departure, Luxury Golf Express guests embark on a 4½ hour railway journey on the Glacier Express crossing the spectacular curved Landwasser Viaduct, passing through the Domleschg Valley and across the Oberalp Pass where the train winds its way up to 2,034m.

For much of the journey, the Glacier Express passes through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhaetiean Railway in the Albula and Bernina landscapes.

On arrival at Andermatt, guests transfer to The Chedi Andermatt (www.thechediandermatt.com), a luxury hotel combining Alpine chic and Asian expression, for a further two nights. In addition to two three-course dinners, access to the hotel’s award-winning spa and health club (where guests will experience a 60-minute Alpienne Mountain Massage), the package includes a round of golf at the stunning 18-hole Andermatt layout.
