FIRST CLASS GLACIER EXPRESS TRAIN (worth $300 for an 8 hour train ride?)

This episode is our experience riding 8 hours through the Swiss Alps from St. Moritz to Zermatt in first class 🙂 We’ve been on a lot of long train rides during our travels, but the Glacier Express is more about the journey than getting from point A to point B! It’s supposed to be one of the most beautiful train rides in Switzerland and the world! Nate explains all the price details at the end. ✈️ We created FareDrop to help you score super cheap international flights! Try it for free and get flight deals up to 80% off ➡️ ⬅️

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! So we extended our 1 year trip to now FOUR years 🙂 Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before 2020! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

    Get interrail. You can choose A country or the whole of europe. With interrail you can unlimited ride all trains, busses and Ships in that country for the amount of days you got the interrail for.

    $43 reservation fee is a total rip-off, let alone the hideous fare, I wouldn’t ride that train out of principle. That’s theft. I thought British railways were expensive.

    this is such a crazy price and not even food included and AC can't deal with the heat. I would say it is not worth it. Even it is really beautiful and thise train ride has been on my bucket list for years

    I was in Switzerland a few years ago and was planning to do this trip, but realised I just didn't have the time. There are too many beautiful rail routes to do. I think I'll now have to return because this video has made the Glacier Express jump a few notches on my bucket list.
