What You Can Expect

Swiss Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Jungfraujoch and Bernese Oberland

Take the cogwheel train to Jungfraujoch

Greet your guide in a central Zurich location and climb aboard a comfortable coach destined for Grindelwald. Receive a fascinating introduction to the Bernese Oberland region as you travel through the beautiful countryside and then refresh with a hot beverage (own expense) during a brief interlude in Interlaken. 

Travel onward to Grindelwald to board the cogwheel train headed to one of Europe’s highest points. Marvel at dramatic mountain scenery during the 1.5-hour ride up the UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch mountain pass, and scour the horizon for the jagged peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. 

On arrival at the 11,332-foot (3,454-meter) summit, gaze at mind blowing views of the Alpine wonderland below, and then ascend to the Sphinx Observatory for even more magnificent panoramas. Try to spot the craggy peak of the Aletsch Glacier, Europe’s longest glacier, and then explore the frozen tunnels of the Ice Palace during an enchanting guided tour. 

Opt to enjoy a fulfilling meal at one of the many rustic restaurants at the summit (own expense) and then re-board the train for the journey to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach awaits. Relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.

This tour was amazing and super well organized - my tour guide Marcel was fantastic and very motivated. I was blessed with outstanding weather, however, have heard that makes all the difference in the world. This tour is definitely worth the money and get to see a lot of Switzerland.

This was an excellent tour with a great guide. It would not have been possible to do everything we did without this tour as it was well organised and even though we were late leaving Zurich we still did everything we expected and more. The hour in Interlaken was great but the two hours at the top of the mountain was even better. We had fantastic weather clear and even though cold being December was just perfect with minimal wind. One of the best tours I have done through viator.

Superb. Actually had a problem at my hotel that morning and missed the bus- so they put me on another bus, and I met my tour in Interlaken. Completely accommodating and a profound experience.

The visit to Jungfraujoch was spectacular. Epic scenery and a bluebird day. Great to see some of the Swiss countryside. Our bus had a mechanical issue however our guide was on it and a new bus was sent to us within a half an hour. Great scenery, only place like it in the world. Best excursion you can do out of Zurich.
