Both itineraries provide guests the new opportunity to travel onboard the luxury train as it runs along Lake Zurich, stopping in destinations such as the medieval town of Lienz, the picturesque Lake Bled with a Pletna rowing trip to Bled Island, and a tour of the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana.

Excursion highlights include detraining for a visit to Gutenberg Castle in the town of Balzers, Liechtenstein and enjoying an evening with a private concert in the caves of Postojna.


Just like the Uniworld experience, the train journeys are five-star and all-inclusive including all transfers, meals, drinks, excursions and gratuities, and all accommodations include a private in-suite bathroom.

The itineraries were created with sustainable tourism in mind, seeking to impact the destinations positively by bringing guests to eat at local restaurants and experience hidden-gem villages in addition to the popular cities.
