Enjoy a spectacular winter tour. Discover the unique landscapes of eternal snow and varying glaciers, and experience an unforgettable adventure.

Departing from Zurich, take a bus ride over the Albis Pass and along the shores of the magnificent Lake Lucerne on the way to the city of Lucerne. Once there, take a short tour of the city's most important sights, including a photo stop at the famous Lion Monument or Vierwaldstätter Lake, depending on traffic. Afterwards, enjoy some free time to explore the city on your own.

From Lucerne, you continue on the tour by driving to Engelberg. The breathtaking ride up into the high alpine glaciers of Mount Titlis begins here. From the Rotair revolving cable car on your way up to mountain, you'll get spectacular views of the deep crevasses in the glaciers, and the immense chunks of ice that break off in spectacular fashion.

Take your chance to enjoy fantastic views over the Swiss Alps from the Panorama Restaurant on top of Mount Titlis.

It was a great way to visit Titlis. Cristina was an excellent guide, full or energy and very professional, her instructions were very clear so the whole trip went very smooth without any problems. I will recommend this tour because they take care of all the details and you just have to enjoy. This tour stops in Lucern but just for one hour, so please note this little detail because if someone is interested in visiting Lucern in depth, it need to do it on a separate tour. The focus is Titlis and it was great!

This was by far the best tour I have ever taken. I loved the tour guide and he really took care of us, explained everything and was kind when 3 people held us up by 45 minutes, as well as the bus not having air conditioning, he stopped and fixed it for everyone and gave out free waters. He was amazing. These were circumstances outside his control and he handled it with class. Also, when he pointed out some cows "having lunch", I almost died laughing! he was really funny!

Our guide Martin gave us interesting facts. We were worried that there will not be enough time on top of the mountain but luckily we had enough time and could enjoy all the attractions. I checked the weather forecast at Mount Titlis up to 24h before our trip and we were lucky that it was sunny. On a foggy day, it would be a waste of money.
