Know More about this tour

Hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan in central Lucerne and journey out into the countryside to begin your tour. As you travel, listen as your guide talks of the region’s rich history and culture and enjoy stunning views of the scenic Entlebuch Valley — an area of unspoilt moorlands and Alpine pasture designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Head through Trubschachen in the Upper Emmental Valley and admire classic Swiss Alpine scenery such as crystal-clear streams and soaring, snow-capped mountains. Stop at the Kambly Experience — one of Switzerland’s biggest biscuit producers — and discover how the sweet treats are made. Enjoy a tasting session and sample several different biscuit varieties for yourself.

Continue on to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bern, the medieval capital of Switzerland. With pretty, red-roofed buildings and cobbled streets, Bern is considered by many to be Switzerland’s most attractive city.

Explore Bern’s ancient Old Town with your guide and discover picturesque local landmarks including the 328-foot (100-meter) spire of Bern Minster. Discover top city attractions such as the imposing parliament building and the clock tower, and enjoy beautiful views over the Aare River. Afterward, enjoy a little free time in Bern to eat lunch (own expense) or shop for souvenirs.

Back aboard your minivan, continue into the heart of Emmental, a patchwork of lush pastureland and traditional dairy farms nestled deep in the Swiss countryside. Visit an Emmental dairy with your guide and watch as the various ingredients are worked over by hand, and discover how Emmentaler AOP is made.
