The world is a wide and wonderful place, filled with locations that we have yet to visit. Life just isn’t fair sometimes. Why should we have to get up every day and work for a living when we can simply travel the world?

Thanks to this awesome video, we are at least able to get a closer glimpse of the Swiss Alps without even having to leave our homes.

That’s what it is all about, right? We love videos like these because they give us the chance to see the world a bit. It is always nice to expand your horizons as much as possible. This clip comes to us courtesy of the good folks at Switzerland is Life and we must agree with their assessment. It makes us want to move there as soon as possible.

Thanks to them, we have been given the chance to enjoy this amazing POV rail tour. You may have seen the Swiss Alps before but you have never seen them in this manner.

The adjective “breathtaking” is definitely overused but this video certainly qualifies. We have never seen anything like this before in our entire lives. It is not every day that you are treated to these types of stunning views and this opportunity is certainly not lost on us.

“Take a journey on one of the most breathtaking train rides in the Swiss Alps with a trip to Mount Pilatus. The train ride will take you through picturesque landscapes, surrounded by majestic mountains, as you make your way to the summit of Mount Pilatus,” this description reads.

The description is apt and yet, it still cannot do justice to what we are seeing. Once you have had the chance to see this one for yourself, you will see exactly what we mean. It is the sort of video that will make you think everyone is exaggerating until you sit down and watch it on your own time.

In order to further your appreciation for the amazing scenery that the Swiss Alps has to offer, you will need to be sure to check this one out:
