Full description
Explore the idyllic Bernese Oberland and magnificent Jungfrau mountain region on a full-day tour from Zurich. The day includes free time to explore the famous mountain resorts of Grindelwald and Interlaken, located between 2 lakes.

Start with a scenic coach journey through splendid countryside to Interlaken in the heart of the Bernese Oberland. After an orientation stop, continue to Grindelwald, also known as “Glacier Village.” Numerous lookout points provide stunning views of the impressive mountainscape, including the triple peaks of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. Take the cable car to the sunny terrace of Mt. First, or explore the town on the unique and fun “trottibikes” (not included).

In the early afternoon, return by train to Interlaken, where you will spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the region’s shopping paradise. Choices on offer include regional produce, precious jewelry, and Swiss watches. If you don’t want to shop, you can visit Interlaken’s Harder Kulm mountain. A cable car will take you to the top for breathtaking views (not included).

Breathe in the fresh mountain air before meeting your guide for the return journey to Zurich and the end of the tour.

What a wonderful experience. Even though the spectacular views of the mountains from Grindelwald was awesome, I should have upgraded to do the Jungfraujoch. I missed my bus back to Zürich but I would do it again just to thank the awesome driver and the tour guide. She is a very proud Swiss lady.

Wow! On the bus I had the choice to upgrade to the Top of Europe tour. I did so. Interlaken and the other towns were absolutely breathtaking. Our guide Minu (might be spelling wrong) was absolutely gem like as well as our driver. I have never been as breathtaken as on this tour. It was one of the best days of my life. Weather permitting, it was BEAUTIFUL and blue skies. A day I will never forget. Definitely don’t underestimate this company or the experience. A MUST! Thank you eternally best of switzerland tours.
