We'll try this one: Varenna to Tirano, 1 hour 26 minutes, 7 euros. Tirano to Pontresina, 2 hours, 27 CHF. You could get off earlier at one of the small stops to look around at peaks and glaciers. But I too am curious, which national park?

Joe, I agree with the others - more information is needed! More specifics will produce more detailed answers. Cheers!

Ok guYs I'm new at this, will be in Varenna 3nights before RS tour starts, wanted to take train to the nearest town to see the alps and return the same day. Sorry about the national park, looks to be to far away. Any experience out there?

For a daytrip,mthen follow what Iposted above. Varenna to Tirano, change there for a Swiss train going toward Pontresina. You can stop off anyplace that looks good, or stay on til,Pontresina. Trains runnin both directions every hour or so. You can find the schedule on the Swiss train site,, or
