Day Trip from Zurich: Grindelwald First Mountain Adventure

1. Day Trip from Zurich: Grindelwald First Mountain Adventure

Enjoy a morning drive from Zurich to the Bernese Oberland, passing by five different mountain lakes and listening to interesting explanations of your multilingual guide. After a picture stop at the famous village of Interlaken, go to the charming mountain resort Grindelwald.  Take the cable car up to Mount First to experience the unique summit attraction "First Cliff Walk by Tissot". The trail with a 40-meter one-rope suspension bridge promises an extraordinary adrenaline kick. Grab a bite to eat on the spectacular sun terrace of the restaurant “Berggasthaus First” (food not included). Nearby, you'll find one of Switzerland's most thrilling activities: the First Flyer, a gigantic zip line that gives you the feeling of flying over 800 meters down the hill with a maximum speed of 84 kilometers per hour. Then, continue by mountain cart on an exceptional ride to Bort, from where you complete your adventure by Trottibike scooter. Curve down to Grindelwald through lovely alpine scenery passing by grazing cows and typical Swiss chalets.  Enjoy some leisure time to explore the alpine village Grindelwald before you take the train back to Interlaken, where you meet your tour guide again for the return trip to Zurich.

Grindelwald: Guided 4-Hour Hike

2. Grindelwald: Guided 4-Hour Hike

After meeting your guide at the convenient meeting point, relax and enjoy a scenic 30-minute aerial gondola ride to the first summit at 2,158m (6500ft) for incredible views over the beautiful Bachalpsee lake.  Start your hike by walking up to a summit above the tree line where you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views, seemingly at eye level of the famous Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau mountain peaks.  Cows will be grazing peacefully on the pastures and you can enjoy the sounds of their bells while inhaling the incredible Swiss environment. After descending by foot, board a local bus for a 30-minute ride back to Grindelwald.

This tour was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. People who do this tour must realize that there is a significant amount of self-guided time. There certainly could have been more specific instruction about how to actually get to the cable car to get up to Mt. First. It wasn’t terribly difficult to figure out, but that was a small bit that was lacking. In general, though, the tour and the whole experience were absolutely fantastic!!!

Fun and beautiful

It was a fantastic day! The activities are so much fun and the scenery is breathtaking. The only challenge is the occasional lineups; as a result, we didn't have much time to check out Grindelwald or Interlaken.

The tour was amazing! The adventure aspect on Mount First was absolutely fun, especially the mountain carts. The tour guide, Peter, was spectacular. He was very informative and friendly.
