My friends and I have been going back and forth on which Flex pass option to choose since we are unclear of how valuable the Swiss pass will be on "non-travel" days. Here is our itinerary:
Geneva to Chamonix by shuttle
Chamonix to Zermatt by train (will need Swiss Pass)- 3 nights
Zermatt to St. Moritz by train (will need Swiss Pass)- 4 nights
St. Moritz to Lucerne by train (will need Swiss Pass)- 3 nights
Lucerne to Zurich to return home (will need Swiss Pass)- same day
We plan to ski 1-2 days in each of the 3 ski locations (Chamonix, Zermatt, and St. Moritz). We are trying to be flexible with those days due to conditions and we would also like to explore each place other than skiing. We are definitely an active and adventurous group. We know we will get our money's worth with the 4 day flex pass, but would anyone recommend getting the 8 day flex pass to be used for the other non-travel days? Is it worth it or not?
