From Saturday 9 April 2022, the wonderful trip returns

After the Historic Train, the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway has the great pleasure of announcing another long-awaited return... the wonderful trip from Locarno to Lake Thun! A simply spectacular trip, to be experienced in 1 or 2 days!

FIRST STAGE: Locarno - Domodossola
Panoramic trains of the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway

A slow journey awaits you in which you can take the time to discover an area full of surprises. A unique experience in contact with a varied territory, in a succession of deep gorges, wild mountains, rivers and waterfalls. 

SECOND STAGE: Domodossola - Spiez
BLS Alpine Green Train

Through the Divedro Valley the train follows the Diveria River and travels the 19.8 km of the Simplon Tunnel, which has linked Italy and Switzerland since 1906. Brig, framed by the Simplon Pass to the south, the Driest and Aletsch glaciers to the north and the imposing Stockalper Castle, is a gem waiting to be discovered.

THIRD STAGE: Spiez - Thun
Boat tour

Lake Thun is embedded in a dreamy alpine setting and surrounded by numerous cosy villages and charming towns such as Thun and Spiez. The sunny southern slopes are home to partly subtropical vegetation.

FOURTH STAGE: Free visit of Thun
Before enjoying the return journey you will have time to visit the romantic town and relax with a lunch by the lake. With its active old town, overlooked by an imposing castle, Thun is the gateway to the Bernese Oberland.

FIFTH STAGE: Return to Locarno
The return journey begins with the Green Train of the Alps arriving in Domodossola. Before ending the journey in the direction of Locarno you can relax in the enchanting setting of the market square or stroll along the streets of the village.
