Day 1: Zurich – Lucerne – Mt Titlis – Interlaken
After meeting your guide in the morning, take a short drive to the city of Lucerne. Admire the scenery of majestic Lake Lucerne backed by the jagged Swiss Alps, and stop for photos at one of the city's famous landmarks, the wooden Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke), erected in the 14th century.
Proceed to the mountain resort of Engelberg, where you’ll hop in a cable car and ride up to the base station of Mt Titlis. Then transfer to the magnificent TITLIS ROTAIR gondola, which rotates its way to the snow-covered summit at 9,908 feet (3,020 meters). Enjoy panoramic views all the way to the top, and then look down onto steep rock faces, deep crevasses and distant peaks.
Back down the mountain, re-board the coach and cross Brunig Pass to the spectacular Bernese Oberland region. Reach the village of Brienz, a renowned center of excellence for woodcarving.
Continue to Interlaken, a popular holiday resort town straddling Lake Thun and Lake Brienz at the foot of the imposing Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. The scenery is simply jaw-dropping. Enjoy the rest of the night on your own to discover what makes this such a sought-after destination.
