Think of the Swiss Alps, and the idyllic Bernese Oberland as well as the crisp snow-covered mountain tops of the Jungfrau come to mind. This tour includes visiting the famous mountain resorts of Grindelwald (aka Eiger or Glacier Village) and Interlaken, which is tucked away in an alpine valley between the mountain lakes of Thun and Brienz.
Begin with a scenic journey to Interlaken, the heart of the Jungfrau region. After a quick orientation from your friendly guide, continue onwards to Grindelwald. Along the way, take in the stunning views of the impressive mountains surrounding you, including the iconic triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. In your leisure time, go on a cable car ride to the sunny terrace of Mt. First, and try the 40-meter-long Cliff Walk by Tissot. You could also hop on a trotti-bike (a fascinating blend of a scooter and a bicycle), should you wish to go speeding downhill Grindelwald. Please note that this is available only during summer.
In the afternoon, take the public train (unescorted) back to Interlaken. Spend your time shopping and browse through everything from regional produce to precious jewelry and watches. Alternatively, make your way to Interlaken's home mountain, the Harder Kulm. Take the funicular to the top and soak in the splendid views of the surrounding areas. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and create fond alpine memories before you meet your guide in the late afternoon for your return journey.
This tour is accompanied by a professional multilingual guide from Zürich to Grindelwald and from Interlaken to Zürich. The stay in Grindelwald and the train ride to Interlaken are unguided. For this part, you will receive schedules and detailed written information.
