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 bus 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.

Our trip today was amazing! Pedro and Ping were our tours guides and they couldn’t have been better, Pedro was very clear when he spoke and gave good instructions and made sure everyone understood what was happening. He was funny and full of energy which makes a fantastic tour guide! I highly recommend

Since my stay was short, I wanted to visit the highlights of Switzerland efficiently. I am very satisfied that I can visit the places I want to see. The guide was very kind and the driver was polite. I thought the price was high, but I was very satisfied, and considering the prices in Switzerland, I thought it was not expensive at all.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Words cannot describe how insane this trip was. Minu was our guide and she was simply the best. So knowledgeable and helpful. We were lucky to have a clear day where we could see all the mountains so clearly! The view up was breathtakingly beautiful! The whole day was planned out well and we throroughly loved this excursion so much. It is definitely worth the money as you see and do so much during the day. The highlight was definitely riding a Swiss train through the mountains with the most stunningly breathtaking views. 100% recommend to anyone wanting to see the amazing beauty of Switzerland !!!
