What You Can Expect

Interlaken and Grindelwald Day Trip from Lucerne


This guided coach tour takes you on a scenic drive to Interlaken, at the foot of the snow-covered Alps of the Bernese Oberland. After free time to spend at your leisure in Interlaken, you'll journey to the well-known holiday resort of Grindelwald, nicknamed the "Glacier Village". You will have time to explore the resort on your own.

An optional cable car ride (operates late May to late October only) to the sunny terrace of Mt. First at 7,113 feet (2,168 meters) is highly recommended for a breathtaking panorama of the Bernese Alps.

In the late afternoon you'll meet your coach and guide to make the return journey to Lucerne.

This is the best way to explore the landscape just right below Alpine mountain. We have about 5 hours to do little hiking, enjoy the landscape, having a nice lunch in one of Indian Restaurant and take many beautiful picture. I also think that join this tour is the easiest way to get grindelwald rather than by train with reasonable price.

Great day and weather. My wife and I were looking for a day in the alps and it was exactly what i had hoped for. For many years i have wanted to see the Eiger with my own two eyes. It was a Sunday in late May so a bit quiet in Interlackan and Grindelwald. I can't imagine what it would be like in peak season. Madness I'm sure. Most of the folks on our coach were heading up to Jungfraujoch so we were dropped off at Interlaken. We had about 90 min. to roam around. We were picked up and taken up to Grindelwald where we had 4 plus hours of splendour. The Eiger is magical and our trip on the gondola to Mt First was worth the $. As i said, it was Sunday with a lot of shops closed but we could still find a cold beer. It was very quiet and if the weather was poor, it would have been a different story. We only had the one full day, on our way Como, to make the trip and we nailed it. Great coach ride and very scenic. A great way to day trip to the Jungfrau region. Easier than a bus or train...........Michael. Halifax Canada

An awesome way to know the alps ! Interlaken is a lovely little town, but we spent most of the day in Grindelwald, on the foot of the Jungfrau. Just the view from the town was worth the ride alone, but the beautiful city, friendly environment and nice weather made it for a perfect day!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2013

This is a good for a couple's day out. The scenic beauty around this area is very romantic and breathtaking. Also there are local eateries where you can satisfy your hunger! This is really a trip for those who want some quiet time!

Beautiful scenery. I especially liked the trip to Grindelwald. You must walk up the hill or take the bus for the short trip up the hill to the only church in the village. The view from there of the mountains and glacier is awesome. The guide was with us only on the bus, but he was informative and great about telling us when to prepare for a good picture.

First signed up for this tour to Grindelwald but considering it was a Sunday where most of the shops were closed, in the end decided to join most of the group on the Jungfraujoch tour. Tour guide was very knowledgable and provided a very fun journey up to the mountains where the view was spectacular. A very enjoyable trip indeed :

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

Our guide, Kid, was amazing! He made sure to take fabulous photos of everyone and give us helpful hints. He alone was 5 stars! The reason I didn't give this tour 5 stars was because we only got 20 min in Interlaken and around an hour in Jungfrau. It felt very rushed w/ most of the day going 2 travel
