Swiss Alps Adventures from Zurich

With high-speed trains that will take you from lakeside Zurich into the mountains in mere minutes, there’s nothing stopping you from escaping the city to explore the dramatic Swiss Alps. Winter ski resorts like Engelberg, Andermatt and Davos are all easily reached from the city center, but the best way to take in the sights is to book on a day or multi-day tour from Zurich.

Visit the ‘Queen of the Swiss Mountains’, Mount Rigi on a day trip to the Lake Lucerne region, where you can ride Europe’s oldest cogwheel railway to the 1,800-meter summit, or head to nearby Mount Pilatus, where the world’s steepest cog railway climbs to the 2,132-meter peak. An even more thrilling way to scale the Alps is on the famous CabriO – a unique double-decker cable car, which offers unbeatable panoramas from its open-air top deck as you scale the peak of Mount Stanserhorn.

Adventurous travelers can also take the scenic train journey to the dizzying heights of Jungfraujoch, the 3,454 meters peak nicknamed the ‘Top of Europe’; walk the notorious Devil’s Bridge at the base of St. Gotthard Mountain; or hike through the ice tunnels of the Rhone Glacier. Or why not take the revolving cable car to the summit of Mount Titlis, where you can brave Europe's highest suspension bridge, teetering over the cliff side at over 3,000 meters, or ride the famous IceFlyer chair lift over the vast Titlis Glacier?
