What You Can Expect

Bernese Oberland Alps Day Trip from Zurich: Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch Panorama

Take the cogwheel train up to Kleine Scheidegg

Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Zurich and relax during the scenic journey through the Bernese Oberland in an air-conditioned coach. Admire sweeping mountain vistas as your knowledgeable guide offers fascinating commentary on the region’s rich history, and then arrive in the spectacular Jungfraujoch region.
Enjoy a brief interlude in Interlaken, a charming town located between two lakes, and then travel onward to Grindelwald to board a cogwheel train to Kleine Scheidegg, a spectacular mountain pass that affords stunning Alpine vistas. Capture photographs of the iconic triple peaks, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, as you climb halfway to the 11,750-foot (3,454-meter) to the summit.
From this manageable vantage point, appreciate breathtaking Alpine sprawls and inhale the pure mountain air. Spend several hours exploring the vertiginous area independently; perhaps follow a self-guided hiking trail to discover gorgeous flora and fauna, or indulge in some traditional Swiss cuisine at a rustic restaurant.
Reconvene with your guide at a prearranged time and take the descending train to Lauterbrunnen. Board your coach to Zurich and relax during the journey back to the original departure point.

I have to say this trip was beyond extraordinary. Our tour guides were highly knowledgeable and provided us with a lifetime experience. the great thing with this tour is that you actually have the option to change and do the top of the mountain but my friend and I decided to stay with this tour and I am hands down glad did I did. we were able to hike independently and experience the most amazing views. I would highly recommend this to anyone!!

We enjoyed a full day on this tour leaving out of Zurich. The bus ride was comfortable and the stops along the way were nice breaks before boarding a cog train to Kleine Scheidegg. Our guide was helpful but not overbearing. We opted to hike up 1000 meters and really enjoyed being in high altitude and cool temperatures. The train town was small but had a restaurant and gifts shops. While many others went to the top, we were glad after talking to others that we had the chance to hike and not just view the scenery. We really enjoyed our trip and it was worth the time and money. Great memory!

This trip was awesome! The guide was great, very knowledgeable and a good sense of humor. The only down side was that we didn't have any time to look around Kleine Scheidegg. Would highly recommend!!!

I'm so glad I decided to add the rest of the mountain to my trip. Definitely DO IT. Pedro was so helpful with that and did a great job overall. He knew his stuff. To be on the glacier, to see the cloud shadows dance over the landscape. Wonderful!!
