Your multilingual guide — who speaks English, Spanish and German — will greet you at the Lucerne Tourist Information Office in the morning and invite you to step aboard the luxury coach for a scenic 1-hour drive to Interlaken. You'll travel through one of the most idyllic regions in Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland, to the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jungfraujoch region.
Take a quick guided tour of Interlaken, a popular town situated between two lakes. Then head to the nearby village of Grindelwald, where you'll board the cogwheel train for a spectacular ride to the foot of Switzerland’s most impressive Alpine panorama. Admire marvelous views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as you ride halfway up the mountain to the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass, located at 6,762 feet (2,061 meters) above sea level.
You’ll have approximately four hours of free time here to explore and take in the sensational Alpine environment. Soak up a sweeping panorama of the Bernese Alps and the best possible views of the Eiger North Face, a famous mountain featured in films such as The Eiger Sanction, starring Clint Eastwood.
If you'd like, take a self-guided hike along the Jungfrau Eiger Walk (seasonal trails open late June to October) and capture photos of the rock and ice masses of Eiger Glacier. You'll find several easily accessible hiking trails of moderate difficulty to explore at your leisure.
For a taste of the region, head to one of the several local restaurants to enjoy some traditional Swiss cuisine.
Meet your guide in the late afternoon and board the train for the downhill ride to Lauterbrunnen, passing the holiday resort town of Wengen along the way. Then board the coach for your 1-hour drive back to Lucerne.
