Full description
Explore the snow-capped mountains of UNESCO-listed Jungfraujoch, the site of Europe's largest glacier. It is also home to Europe's highest train station. The 10-hour excursion begins with a scenic coach journey from Lucerne, 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. From there, change to a cogwheel train that will take you to the peak of Jungfraujoch. From the top of Jungfraujoch, you’ll marvel at the High-Alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock. Experience the Alpine Sensation adventure tour, marking the 100th anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway. Visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau for breathtaking views of the Aletsch Glacier.

    Tour provided by Best of Switzerland. Everything from start to finish was faultless. Excellent communications before the tour commenced. A very friendly, knowledgeable tour guide and a friendly group - what more could you want? Attention to hygiene and safety precautions were good and implemented well without detracting from the experience. Konrad our guide was informative, humourous and readily available to take pictures upon request! In fact the your wouldn't have been as good without him! An excellent, highly recommended tour - well worth the money !

    This trip was amazing. The journey started with a bus ride that was rather long, but the amazing and knowledgeable guides made the time pass quickly. Next, we had to board cogwheel trains which took a while to get to the top. The view is very much worth it and the guides are very nice and knowledgeable and helpful. although a lot was guided, there was also a lot that was left for individuals to see on their own. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anybody.

    Was well organised , and delightful views all the way . The reps Angie and Rebecca very friendly and helpful. Only downfall is there is nowhere on the coach to charge up your phone ( except by the driver) Also the sticky labels that they give you to wear and identify the group keep falling off . You are not allowed to eat and drink on the coach . Overall I did find this Trip very expensive .
