What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Mt Titlis and Lucerne Day Trip from Zurich

Visit the Lion Monument in Lucerne!

You’ll be picked up from your Zurich hotel in the morning and taken on an approximate 1.5-hour drive south toward Mt Titlis, a famous mountain in the Urner Alps. Enjoy a scenic ride by comfortable private minivan or mini-coach – depending on the size of your group – through the beautiful Swiss countryside via the Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake Lucerne. Discuss your itinerary for the day with your guide; it's a private tour so it can be customized for you.

Stop in Lucerne for a guided tour of this charming German-speaking city. Enjoy an hour of free time to get a closer look at sights such as the Lion Monument, Chapel Bridge, Town Hall and the Culture and Congress Centre.

After your time here, continue to Engelberg, where three different cable cars will take you into eternal snow and ice. The last one is the Rotair, the world's first revolving cable car. Enjoy an incredibly scenic journey over the Swiss Alps to the summit of Mt Titlis, located 10,600 feet (3,238 meters) above sea level. Because this is a rotating car, you'll enjoy endless views of the stunning Switzerland landscape in every direction, no matter where you're standing.

Capture postcard-worthy photos of the breathtaking alpine panorama at the summit, where you'll find several restaurants and a sun terrace where you can relax and have lunch if you wish (own expense). Imagine enjoying a meal while sitting on top of the world!

Visit the Ice Grotto, a 1,148-foot-long (350-meter) cave of ice, and take a ride on the Ice Flyer, a chairlift ride that affords up-close views of glacier crevasses. You can also walk along Europe’s highest suspension bridge over impressive ice formations!

You have about 1.5 hours to spend at your leisure at the summit of Mt Titlis. Afterwards, take the cable cars back down the mountain and relax on the drive back to Zurich.
