PACKAGED ITINERARY - NEW

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Grindelwald
We spend our first day at leisure in our picturesque resort of Grindelwald surrounded by its breathtaking mountainscape. Take a ride on the Jungfrau railway which for more than 100 years has been making its journey to Europe’s highest altitude railway station at 3,454m. Travel all the way to the Jungfrau or journey to Kleine Scheidegg, both offer an exhilarating experience. All through the year, the cog railway runs steeply up through a 7km tunnel to the Jungfraujoch with a stop at Eismeer station which offers spectacular views onto the glacial world outside through its windows in the Eiger North Face. Once at the summit, we are greeted by a high-Alpine wonder world which can all be marvelled at from the spectacular viewing platforms.

Day 3 Berne & Interlaken
We make our way to the capital city of Berne this morning, where we enjoy a 2 hour guided walking tour of the beautiful old town, viewing its popular attractions as well as its little hidden corners. Attractions include the late Gothic Berne Minster, the Parliament Building, the Prison Tower, Einstein’s House and the famous Zytglogge Clock Tower, the oldest gate to the city of Berne, dating back from the 13th century. In the afternoon, we visit spectacular Interlaken, renowned for its impressive mountain scenery. With over 45 mountain railways, cable cars and chair lifts as well as paddle steamers cruising the waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, there is plenty to experience here.

Day 4 Lucerne
The beautiful lakeside setting of Lucerne is our destination today. There is plenty to admire including the famous covered medieval Chapel Bridge which is considered to be one of the oldest wooden bridges in Europe, historic houses decorated with frescoes which line the picturesque town squares, the baroque 17th century church and the twin towers of the Hofkirche which all form an integral part of the townscape. We embark on a 1 hour circular cruise of Lake Lucerne with audio headset commentary, enjoying views of the lake, the town and the surrounding mountains on our scenic yacht cruise.

Day 5 Lauterbrunnen & Schilthorn Cable Car
This morning, we make our way to Schilthorn, travelling through the Lauterbrunnen landscape, famous for its magnificent, thundering waterfalls, gigantic rock faces, mountain peaks, secluded valleys and alpine meadows. We can stop off in Lauterbrunnen en route before continuing to Schilthorn, where we board the spectacular Schilthorn cable car which will transport us to an altitude of 2,970m, to the “James Bond Mountain”. Once at the summit, the most impressive 360 degree panoramic view of the Swiss Alps will greet us! We can enjoy lunch in the world’s first revolving mountain restaurant before following in the footsteps of James Bond by visiting the interactive adventure exhibition Bond World 007 or on the new 007 Walk of Fame. Unusual and truly bottomless perspectives open up on the Skyline Walk and the Thrill Walk at the intermediate stop at Birg.

Day 6 Departure
We make our way home today.
