Full description
Enjoy a morning drive from Lucerne to the Bernese Oberland, passing by five different mountain lakes and listening to interesting explanations of your multilingual guide. After a picture stop at the famous village of Interlaken, go to the charming mountain resort Grindelwald.  Take the cable car up to Mount First to experience the unique summit attraction "First Cliff Walk by Tissot". The trail with a 40-meter one-rope suspension bridge promises an extraordinary adrenaline kick. Grab a bite to eat on the spectacular sun terrace of the restaurant “Berggasthaus First” (food not included) before soaking up the beautiful scenery on a hike to Lake Bachalpsee (6 km / 1.5 to 2 hours return). For adventure lovers, an exciting range of optional activities awaits you: the First Flyer (optional), a gigantic zip line that gives you the feeling of flying over 800 meters down the hill with a maximum speed of 84 kilometers per hour. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, you can whizz down the mountain on a mountain cart (optional) or Trottibike scooter (optional). For a more leisurely descent, take the cable car down to Grindelwald through lovely alpine scenery, passing by grazing cows and typical Swiss chalets.  Enjoy some leisure time to explore the alpine village Grindelwald before you take the train back to Interlaken, where you meet your tour guide again for the return trip to Lucerne.

Worth the $

Great activities on tour. Do the “zip flyer” instead of the “zip line”. Shorter wait and I submit more daring than the zip line. Why? You do it backwards (going up) then forwards and we passed zip liners on the way down. I did it no hands on the grips and it was almost heart stopping.

We had to skip the mountain carts because the conveyor belt broke but otherwise the trip was great!
