From Milan: Interlaken & Swiss Alps Day Trip

1. From Milan: Interlaken & Swiss Alps Day Trip

Depart Milan on a high-speed train for the town of Domodossola, the last Italian frontier before the Swiss border. Here, begin your adventure on the “Green Train of the Alps.”  Journey through the Simplon pass, one of the most beautiful crossings in Switzerland. Cutting between the Alps, your knowledgeable English-speaking guide will introduce you to the secrets of mountains and the valleys as they appear before your eyes. After around 2-hours of breathtaking panoramas, you will arrive in Spiez, on the shores of Lake Thun. Here, stop for lunch (not included), before departing on your cruise to Interlaken on a state of the art steamboat.  While crossing the lake, take a moment to snap some pictures of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, 3 famous mountains whose recognizable shapes are reflected in the light blue water of the lake. Once in the Interlaken, enjoy time to explore the picturesque architecture or take a walk around the shore, where you will be able to marvel at the hang gliders peacefully soaring over the snow capped Alps in the distance.  Aside from the beautiful views, don’t forget to try some of the world’s finest Swiss chocolate at the one of the many local specialty chocolatiers that dot the town. In the late afternoon, take a train back to Domodossola before returning to Milan on an air-conditioned coach.

Inna was an amazing guide, she made sure the whole group was informed of what was going on at all times, she gave us a little background on the different areas and she kept us on schedule at all times. It’s been the best tour I have been in the last couple of years. Switzerland is gorgeous!!! If you are thinking about visiting Spiez and Interlaken don’t think about it this tour is perfect! Make sure you eat in the boat, and take a taxi around Interlaken.

Was a lovely scenic trip. It’s a great day if travelling for most of the day doesn’t bother you. Very beautiful places to see. Not a lot of time in Spiez or Interlaken to explore. The guides were wonderful and kept us moving. Perfect day and great trip.
