Full description
Be collected from your accommodation by your tour guide and make your way to the train station in Basel. An intercity train will take you in 50 minutes to Lucern, where you will board a local train. After 45 minutes you will arrive at Engelberg, which is a small village at the end of the valley, known for the winter tourism industry.

Your tour guide will lead you to the gondola station, which is 10 minutes away from the train. To get up the hill, you will board a 6 seat gondola, which will take you through 2 sections to the middle station, Stand. You will glide above meadows, trees, and rocks in a peaceful and beautiful landscape. At Stand, you will change to the rotating gondola, which takes you to your final destination in 5 minutes. During the journey, the gondola rotates by 360 degrees to ensure a fantastic aerial view. 

Once you arrive at the top, your tour guide will suggest beginning your sightseeing tour at the terraces, where there is always snow at 9980 foot above sea level. Enjoy the fantastical aerial view to the surrounding mountains and glaciers. After the terraces, you will visit the highest suspension bridge in Europe. Cross the 100-meter long bridge, which is 1640 foot high. On the other side is the entrance to the ice vace, a tunnel system in the middle of the glacier. 

Return to the main building and take the opportunity to have lunch in the panoramic restaurant. Enjoy local dishes while looking at the surrounding mountains. After lunch you can choose to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the terraces or take a seated chair lift to the snow park, where you will have different options to enjoy the snow. Once you have seen all of the attractions, your tour guide will lead you via Engelberg back to Basel, where your tour will end.
