Full description
Travel from Zurich or Lucerne in a comfortable minibus right into the heart of the Alps. Through the Brünigpass, you will reach the Bern uplands and visit the majestic Aare Gorge. You will cross the breathtaking chasm on safe, solid paths, before stopping for some free time, perhaps for lunch.

After the break, the tour continues up to the wild landscapes of the Grimselpass, where you will have a beautiful view of the Totensee. To visit the Rhone Glacier, at a height of 2300m, you will pass through the 100m long, blue ice tunnel into the ice chamber!

After a short break you will go onwards to the Furkapass, and see the spectacular Gotthardmassiv and the valley of Urserental. The tour will take you further, past Realp to Andermatt, and over the Schöllenenschlucht gorge on the legendary Devil's Bridge. Then, you will return past Göschenen, at the foot of the Gotthard Pass, before reaching Zürich.
