Full description

Explore the snow-capped mountains of Jungfraujoch, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 2007 for its stunning High Alps scenery, and as the site of Europe’s largest glacier and highest train station.

Take a scenic bus journey along the Brünig Pass and the shores of Lake Brienz to the Bernese Oberland. After a break in Interlaken, board the cable car at the Grindelwald Terminal for a spectacular 15-minute ride to the Eiger Glacier by gondola.

Change to a cogwheel train that will take you to the peak of Jungfraujoch. Enjoy stunning views of the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as you ride. Immerse yourself in the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow, and rock at the top.

Learn more about the history of the Jungfrau Railways on the "Alpine Sensation” discovery tour, marking the 100-year anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway. Visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau for the most breathtaking views of the Aletsch Glacier.

Stroll through the tunnels of the Ice Palace in the heart of the glacier for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Descend via the car-free resort of Wengen to Lauterbrunnen, from where the bus takes you back to Zurich.

This trip was so worth the money! Good thing I decided to book this tour because I feel like I would be so lost if ever I did a DIY. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and approachable that I picked up so many random amazing info about Switzerland. Indeed you must prepare if it’s your first time on high altitude I almost passed out one time haha overall it was worth it!
