Assemble at the airport and depart for Zurich Switzerland's financial centre.
Upon your arrival, embark on an orientation tour of Lucerne with your tour manager. Visit the Old Chapel Bridge – the oldest wooden bridge in Switzerland, Old Town Lucerne with its unspoiled buildings covered with colourful murals and the Lion Monument. Then, make your way to the Glacier Garden Museum, which was discovered in 1872. Here, you’ll find Glacial Potholes that dates back to the Ice Age.
Today, board the cogwheel train in Vitznau and ascend to Rigi Kulm, the highest peak of Mount Rigi. Also known as the ‘Queen of the Mountains’, Mt. Rigi is encircled by a trio of lakes – Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz – and adjacent to the neighbouring peaks of Mount Pilatus and Brunnistock. At 1,797 metres above sea level, you’ll get to enjoy a truly phenomenal, 360-degree panorama of no fewer than 13 lakes and a ‘sea of peaks’. As night falls, enjoy a 4-course Swiss fondue combo dinner at the Swiss-themed Bebbis Restaurant in Interlaken.
Bask in the nature of the Bernese Oberland region with its picture-perfect landscapes accentuated by countless mountain peaks and glistening lakes. Enjoy the morning free at leisure for some shopping or sightseeing at your pleasure. You may wish to take part in an optional sledging activity, where you board a specially designed Snow Bus for a comfortable ride up to Mt. Bussalp. Enjoy marvellous views of the Jungfrau’s snowy peaks as you sledge down the twists and turns of the 7.6km long sledge run; the longest in Europe. Stay overnight in Tasch. Optional: Sledging on Mt. Bussalp
Begin your day with a visit to Zermatt, an old, idyllic village nestled in a deep valley enclosed between steep mountains, and situated right at the foot of the Matterhorn. A unique, car-free destination that is best explored on foot, Zermatt draws you in with its charming cobbled streets and lovely horse-drawn carriages – a scene straight out of a storybook. Board the world’s first fully electrified cog railway – the Gornergrat Bahn – which starts from the village centre in Zermatt, through verdant forests and lovely meadows up to the Gornergrat (3,089m). Here, you’ll find Switzerland’s highest hotel, the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat. From the observation platform, you’ll be treated to magnificent views of the Monte Rosa massif with Switzerland’s highest peak (Dufourspitze, 4,634 m); the second-largest glacier in the Alps, the Gorner Glacier; and a total of 29 mountains above 4,000m, including the Matterhorn in all its glory. Afterwards, visit the Matterhorn Museum for a deeper insight into the history and development of Zermatt.
After breakfast, journey to the Great Aletsch Glacier – an impressive sea of ice that runs over 23km from its formation in the Jungfrau region down to the Massa Gorge, around 2,500m below. Ascend up to the Moosfluh viewpoint and be mesmerised by the fantastic views overlooking the large glacier. Spend the night in Chur, the oldest city in Switzerland.
Today, you will board the world-famous UNESCO World Heritage train, the Bernina Express (return trip). Admire the spectacular scenery on the world’s highest-altitude railroad, as you pass through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges along the way, including the signature 65-metre-high Landwasser Viaduct.
Start your morning with a visit to the Abbey Library of Saint Gall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses one of the oldest collections in Europe. The intricate and elaborate artworks installed in the ceiling framed by flowing, curved mouldings exude a surreal and fantastical ambience. Spend some time in the town of St. Gallen before travelling to Zurich for the night Note: Abbey Library is closed on 08 Nov – 23 Nov, 24-25 Dec 2021. There will be no replacement program.
After breakfast, join your tour manager on an orientation tour of Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland. Relish in the sights of the beautiful city, its architecture, and its turquoise lake. The world-renowned financial center draws millions of visitors to its picturesque compact city. Get to know more about this financial hub by visiting the Swiss National Museum. Take a stroll down the old town and drop by Bahnhofstrasse, a shopping avenue selling luxury goods.
