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.

Fantastic tour with spectacular views as the weather was perfect. Enjoyed visiting Interlaken and was good going up the mountain via Grindelwald and back down via Lauterbrunnen. Guide was very pleasant and informative. Would throughly recommend doing this if you want to experience the Swiss Alps. Just be aware it is a long day especially as we got stuck in a traffic jam which added on an extra hour to our return trip - just one of those things no one can do anything about!.

I greatly enjoyed this tour I booked via Viator. It was run by Best of Switzerland Tours, which was outstanding. The guide, Michelle, was wonderful. She was very nice, kept the group in order, and provided a lot of interesting information. After the stop in Interlaken to walk around for a bit, we took the train from Grindelwald to Jungfrau with train change at Kleine Scheidegg, and then the way back was to Lauterbrunnen from Kleine Scheidegg so this allowed for different scenic views. The complex at Jungfrau was very fun and interesting with various activities. The views were wonderful and I was blessed to have great weather. I was watching the weather reports and cameras on the Jungfrau website prior to my trip and booked as late as I possibly could for the day with the best chance of weather, though I know everyone does not have this flexibility in their plans. There are areas where you can walk in snow at the Jungfrau, so if you plan to do this I recommend boots or some other type of waterproof shoe that has a non-skid bottom. The ice cave was beautiful but a bit slippery to walk around so for those with mobility problems they may want to think twice about seeing this section of the complex.

Very good tour, everything transport, tickets were given and provided, saved lots of hassle. Knowledgeable tour guide. Just about sufficient time to tour and enjoy the mountain. It's definitely worth it.
