Summer in the Alps

9th January 2019

Virgin Limited Edition has created a new post-cruise package at The Lodge in Verbier to cater to the rising number of travellers extending their European river cruise.

Switzerland is fast becoming a ‘must-visit’ destination and no town showcases the beauty of the country more than Verbier. As a long-term favourite with the British Royal Family and international stars, the town boasts spectacular Alpine views and an unrivalled variety of activities during the summer months.

Post-Cruise itineraries at The Lodge have been created in partnership with Bucher Travel and include transfers from either Basel or Lyon pier. Guests can look forward to 3 nights luxury accommodation at The Lodge, activities including wine tasting, a cooking class and hiking, and excursions to the most famed sights of the region including Mont Forte and Gruyere castle.

Rates are from CHF6,465 per couple (approx. USD$6,465 at today’s exchange rate) and include accommodation, all meals and drinks, excursions and transfers.
