After a break in Interlaken, you’ll board the cogwheel train in Grindelwald for a spectacular ride via Kleine Scheidegg. Enjoy the stunning views of the triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau along the way. From the top of Jungfraujoch, you’ll marvel at the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock.

This trip was amazing. The journey started with a bus ride that was rather long, but the amazing and knowledgeable guides made the time pass quickly. Next, we had to board cogwheel trains which took a while to get to the top. The view is very much worth it and the guides are very nice and knowledgeable and helpful. although a lot was guided, there was also a lot that was left for individuals to see on their own. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anybody.

Was well organised , and delightful views all the way . The reps Angie and Rebecca very friendly and helpful. Only downfall is there is nowhere on the coach to charge up your phone ( except by the driver) Also the sticky labels that they give you to wear and identify the group keep falling off . You are not allowed to eat and drink on the coach . Overall I did find this Trip very expensive .

A great way to experience the most amazing of places!

We had the best day. The Jungfraujoch is an amazingly picturesque area and the visit to the top of the mountain was spectacular. The tour didn't feel rushed and though more time on the snow may have been nice, we definitely were able to enjoy the time we had (we snow tubed at the fun park!). We liked having a bit of time to look around Interlaken and seeing both Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. We are on a driving holiday and it was great to leave the car and planning behind and leave it to our driver (Ernest) and guides (Peter and Thomas). Peter was so knowledgeable and interesting and was definitely an asset to our group and to our overall experience. A big thanks to all 3 gents.
