Full description

Enjoy a day trip from Zurich to the winter wonderland of Mount Titlis with a guide. Discover the beauty of Lake Lucerne, enjoy a scenic drive to Engelberg, experience an unforgettable adventure on the Ice Flyer chairlift, and cross the Titlis Cliff Walk bridge suspended over the Swiss Alps. Departing from Zurich, take a bus ride over the Albis Pass and along the shores of 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 Lion Monument or Vierwaldstätter Lake, depending on traffic.

Afterward, enjoy some free time to explore Lucerne on your own. From there, continue the journey 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 the mountain, get spectacular views of the deep crevasses in the glaciers, and the immense chunks of ice that break off in spectacular fashion. Enjoy incredible views over the Swiss Alps from the Panorama Restaurant on top of Mount Titlis. Visit the Ice Grotto, or take the Ice Flyer chairlift to get up close to the glaciers at an altitude of over 9,800 feet (3,000 meters).

Adventure seekers can slide through the snow and down the mountainside on a snow tube  – the choice is yours.

It was great. Guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. But 2 of the best bits on the mountain were closed. The ice flyer and the snow slide. I was disappointed they didn't leg us know sooner about this as these were the main 2 reasons I wanted to go. I understand its due to weather which cannot be controlled but think there should be info on the booking such as in these months xyz these items may be closed due to weather. Or we should get money back for the elements we didn't get to do.

The highlight of our Swiss trip! Everything was smooth and done on time- from the short stop in Lucerne until we reached mt Titlis. I believe the bus route to Lucerne, this time, was different from yesterday's. The view is always scenic, Switzerland is beautiful!!! the lakes are supr clean. In mt titlis, our 3-year old got to enjoy everything - ice flyer, cliff walk, ice glacier. We came from a tropical country, so our outfit might not be sufficient for the temperature. You can rent winter jacket there, which we did for our child. Thanks to Kristina and Marlio, who guided us during the trip.

Overall tour was excellent. Tour guide kept us informed all through the start point till end point. Tour was not at all hectic (as I was worried for such a long tour). Itinerary was very well planned/designed where we get ample time to eat, take loads of photos, go to toilets, buy souvenirs etc. Highly recommend this tour operators
