Itinerary

Day 1: Zurich — Interlaken or Grindelwald
After pickup from central Zurich or your hotel by coach, sit back and savor the excitement as you travel through the splendid countryside to one of Switzerland's most attractive Alpine regions, the Bernese Oberland. Along the way, enjoy live commentary about the region from your professional guide.

Arrive in Interlaken or Grindelwald (depending on option selected) and spend the rest of the day as you please. Your guide will equip you with detailed written information about the sights, attractions and activities available in the town of your choice.

Interlaken: Uniquely located between two lakes, this popular resort town offers great shopping, attractions and outdoor activities. You can cruise on one of the lakes, take the cable car to Harder Kulm mountain or visit the JungfrauPark theme park.

Grindelwald: Nestled in an impressive Alpine landscape, Grindelwald is a paradise for nature lovers. Go hiking to enjoy stunning views of the famous triple peaks Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, take the cable car to the sunny terrace of Mt First or rent a trottibike for a fun ride through town.

For dinner, each town offers a range of restaurants, from authentic local ski lodges to more trendy, modern establishments.

Overnight: 3-star hotel in Interlaken or Grindelwald

Day 2: Interlaken or Grindelwald — Jungfraujoch — Zurich (B)
Enjoy buffet breakfast at your hotel before embarking on a day trip to Jungfraujoch, the Top of Europe. Meet your guide for a scenic drive through the Jungfrau region to Grindelwald (or meet your guide directly in Grindelwald if option selected), where you’ll hop on a cogwheel train for a ride up the Alps via the Kleine Schneidegg mountain pass.

When you arrive at Jungfraujoch, you’re officially at the highest train station in Europe! The Top of Europe immerses you in a high-Alpine wonderland of snow-capped peaks. Soak up the breathtaking panorama view from the Sphinx Observation Terrace overlooking Aletsch Glacier — Europe's longest glacier — and the snow-capped peaks of neighboring countries. Then visit the Ice Palace to walk through the heart of a glacier!

Stop for lunch at a restaurant (own expense) before reconvening with your guide for the train ride back to Lauterbrunnen, where the coach awaits you for the return trip to Zurich.

The tour staff was very friendly and helpful.The tour guide Karin was very nice and gave very good background on Switzerland. The bus was very comfortable. We stopped at Interlaken and had adequate time to see the main street. The time allowed for sight seeing was adequate. The tour started and ended on time.They had me stay in this beautiful Hotel Derby. The view from my room 412 were incredibly beautiful. They gave decent breakfast. I had to manage coming down from Grindelwald to Grind with my luggage but the bus ride was free.The Jungfrau train ride was included. I could not see much on the top because of the fog/ clouds, better luck next time. I highly recommend this two day tour from Zurich to Jungfraujoch via Grindelwald.

The tour was fantastic. We spent the night in Grindelwald. This is a better choice than Interlaken if you wish to hike. If you want to shop, then go to Interlaken. The trip to Jungfraujoch was surreal. The guides were great and we really enjoyed the tour.

This is an amazing must do tour! It is definitely worth it to stay overnight. We chose Interlaken and it was the cutest little town. There are so many fun activities to do hanging around for the day and exploring more of this beautiful country.
