Full description

Explore the snow-capped mountains of Jungfraujoch, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 2007 for its stunning High Alps scenery, and as the site of Europe’s largest glacier and highest train station.

Take a scenic coach journey along the Brünig Pass and the shores of Lake Brienz to the Bernese Oberland. After a break in Interlaken, board the cable car at the Grindelwald Terminal for a spectacular 15-minute ride to the Eiger Glacier by gondola.

Change to a cogwheel train that will take you to the peak of Jungfraujoch. Enjoy stunning views of the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as you ride. Immerse yourself in the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow, and rock at the top.

Stroll through the tunnels of the Ice Palace in the heart of the glacier for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Descend via the car-free resort of Wengen to Lauterbrunnen, where your coach will be waiting for your return transfer to Zurich.

Absolutely fantastic. The scenery was breathtaking and the tour coordinated well with a mix of cable car and train rides up/down the mountain. At the top there is plenty of activities to see with the ice palace and loads of great photo opportunities The tour guides Katrin & Ping kept everyone well informed Only slight put off was that we spent 1 hour in Interlakken on the way there when a 15min break would have done which would have given more time on the mountain and maybe given time have to do some walking

The coach ride was nice and easy was nice not having to worry about which trains you needed to catch and the price of them but with the Swiss pass the latter wouldn’t of mattered the gondola and the train down had beautiful views and there was small stops on the way to allow for pictures Which was nice would’ve appreciated more time at the top of jungfraujoch to explore and be able to eat we definitely missed out on some things trying to fit the whole tour in although the information received along the way was a nice little touch to make you feel more at home in a foreign country

An amazing trip and well worth the money, I would recommend this to anyone. The guide was great, the coach ride so much easier than figuring out all the trains and connections yourself. Like all of Switzerland, the scenery is breathtaking but the food is appalling! Tip, buy a sandwich at the Grindewald station as the food in the restaurants at the top is awful and very expensive.
