Full description

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.

Experience the adventure tour “Alpine Sensation,” marking the 100-year anniversary of the Jungfrau Railway. Visit the Sphinx Observation Terrace and Plateau for the most breathtaking views of the Aletsch Glacier.

Stroll through the tunnels of the Ice Palace in the heart of the glacier for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Descend via the car-free resort of Wengen to Lauterbrunnen, from where the bus takes you back to Zurich.

Awesome day trip to Jungfraujoch, including a mini stop in Interlaken! Lots of time to explore on your own once you're off the bus, and you also get to learn a lot on the bus as the tour guide explains facts about Switzerland and the places/sights that you pass during your ride. I was glad that all of the transportation was included as part of this tour, which was super convenient for me. The bus itself was a coach bus, so it was very roomy and comfortable. Vladimir was a great tour guide, very organized and knowledgable, thank you!

Gallus, our tour guide was absolutely amazing! He provided us with a bunch of great information along the bus ride and on the trip. There was a couple bathroom stops and the first one wasn’t free (~1 or 2 CFh). The stop in Interlaken was beautiful and the top of Europe was breathe taking. Please take caution in the ice palace as it is very slippery. If you are visiting Switzerland this is a must do experience.

This was THE BEST, the best trip and one of the highlights of my European tour. This tour was exceptionally well organised from the moment we stepped onto the bus in Zürich; the trains, gondola rides, and everything in between were perfect. And, of course, the top of Jungfraujoch was unbelievable. I highly recommend this trip, which I will likely do again on my next visit to Zürich. Our tour guide was one of the best - this trip was 100% worth the price!
