Nature had one of her finest moments in Switzerland. As far as the eye can see there is varied and intense beauty boasting from everywhere – colossal glaciers, raging falls, hidden valleys, and mountains over 4000m of altitude. Enjoy your holiday in an active way and let your mind free in the peaceful mountains. You can also treat yourself with some traditional chocolates, which will most certainly not disappoint you.
Private transfers from the airport or station to your hotel. This is your free time to enjoy this picturesque town of Lucerne. Welcome drinks and dinner at one of the town’s traditional restaurants.
Today you will take the cable car to Mount Titlis, which is the jewel in Central Switzerland’s crown and the only publicly accessible glacier in the area. You will feel on top of the world as you take in the spectacular panoramic views as the Ice Flyer chair lift sweeps you smoothly and safely over crisp, snow fields and icy depths. Some of the crevasses are up to twenty metres deep from the mountain station to the Titlis glacier park. You will also enjoy the Titlis Cliff Walk, this spectacular suspension bridge high upon the summit. 3,041 metres above sea level – 500 metres off the ground – 150 heart-pounding steps. Later afternoon you will meet with your local guide for a short walking tour of Lucerne. Ending with a 1 hour cruise on Lake Lucerne.
After an early breakfast you leave Lucerne for Interlaken. You start by transferring to Grindelwald and then you catch the tram to Männlichen, where you will spend a bit of time to take in the views. Afterwards you will take the hiking trail to Kleine Scheidegg, which is well marked and an easy hike. It is mostly downhill and is surrounded by the major peaks of the Jungfrau region (Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau). The trail is approximately 5,8 km. After lunch at Kleine Scheidegg, you will return by train to Interlaken, and tour will end at the hotel.
Today’s trip starts by train along the lake to Spiez. Here we change onto the BLS railway to the picturesque Kander valley to the small pretty town of Kandersteg, where you will stop for a short walk and enjoy its natural beauty. Then you take a cable car for a spectacular ride to beautiful Lake Oeschinen, set in a mountain amphitheatre high above the main valley, enjoy a scenic walk and get close to the characteristic Swiss cows roaming the lush high pastures. This is the heart of the Bernese Oberland, where the great arc of the Alps culminates in some of its highest and most spectacular peaks. Awe-inspiring and dramatic, the area epitomises the ‘chocolate-box’ Alps: lush green pastures and lowland slopes carpeted bright with wildflowers against a backdrop of rugged mountains – all topped off with sun-glistening glaciers. Returning to the lakeside town of Spiez, you will have some free time at leisure before returning at your leisure by Lake Steamer to Interlaken.
Today is free at leisure.
