Know More about this tour

Your multilingual guide — who speaks English, Spanish and German — will greet you at the Lucerne Tourist Information Office in the morning and invite you to step aboard the luxury coach for a scenic 1-hour drive to Interlaken. You'll travel through one of the most idyllic regions in Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland, to the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jungfraujoch region.
Take a quick guided tour of Interlaken, a popular town situated between two lakes. Then head to the nearby village of Grindelwald, where you'll board the cogwheel train for a spectacular ride to the foot of Switzerland’s most impressive Alpine panorama. Admire marvelous views of the famous triple peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as you ride halfway up the mountain to the Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass, located at 6,762 feet (2,061 meters) above sea level.
You’ll have approximately four hours of free time here to explore and take in the sensational Alpine environment. Soak up a sweeping panorama of the Bernese Alps and the best possible views of the Eiger North Face, a famous mountain featured in films such as The Eiger Sanction, starring Clint Eastwood.
If you'd like, take a self-guided hike along the Jungfrau Eiger Walk (seasonal trails open late June to October) and capture photos of the rock and ice masses of Eiger Glacier. You'll find several easily accessible hiking trails of moderate difficulty to explore at your leisure.
For a taste of the region, head to one of the several local restaurants to enjoy some traditional Swiss cuisine.
Meet your guide in the late afternoon and board the train for the downhill ride to Lauterbrunnen, passing the holiday resort town of Wengen along the way. Then board the coach for your 1-hour drive back to Lucerne.

  • The views were beautiful and the experience at Kleine Scheidegg was fun....however the tour was very disorganized. There were 3 groups all doing different tours, and it was not explained very well to us where we needed to go and where to meet up at the end. We would have enjoyed a bit more time in Interlaken. We only got about 30 minutes. Finishing the tour was not at all pleasant. We were put into a separate car on the train that only held 4 people. We felt like we were prisoners. Away from the rest of the group which meant we missed out on the commentary from our tour guide. We were not very impressed with our guide Trudi. Her knowledge of the area was good but she was not a good leader. We do not feel that the cost of this tour was worth what we got out of it. We did an independant tour at Zermatt and the Matterhorn which we enjoyed far more than this, and was comparable in price.

  • The only good: our guide Peter was very informative. But this is just a terrible tour. They cram three different tours on one bus. Their man focus is the Jungfrau group so the guide stays with them and you get stuck in Klein sheidigg for FOUR hours. It was raining and foggy. Nothing to see or do

  • There was too much time at Klein Scheidegg. Would prefer to have an hour to explore in Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. Other than that the trip was amazing.

  • The description for this tour needs to change. Not only that, but you can purchase the tour for much cheaper while in Switzerland. There were four hours at Kleine Scheidegg and no maps for hiking tours. Additionally, most everything was closed. The guide didn't even offer adding the tour to the top which I would have added just to have something to do. Not sure what the tour in Interlaken was supposed to consist of, but our guide just told us to go down the street and buy sandwiches. I really regret spending my money on this.

  • We took the Oberland Alps Day Trip Kleine Scheidegg from Lucerne. The coach was very nice, the guide was knowledgeable and the train rides had spectacular views. We enjoyed the time at Kleine Scheidegg and walked to the Lake and had numerous photo ops in the area. We brought our own sandwiches and enjoyed a beer at the outdoor restaurant. It was a full day trip and good value. We were on a river cruise and they offered a similar trip for nearly double the price.

  • Breathtaking scenery. Did not take optional trip to the top and still rewarded with incredible views

  • Quite simply there was nothing to do at Kleines Scheidegg during April. We thought we could go hiking as recommended by the tour itinerary but it was snowing with poor visibility. Viatour needs to change its recommendations and give better advice on what you can do depending on the time of yr.

  • Wow! What an amazing trip. It was one of our most favorite tours, and we did around 18 across Europe.
    Loved the time to just explore, have lunch and take in the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

  • Great trip that reminded us of skiing on the Kleine Scheidegg in years past. Taking the cog railway up from Grindelwald and down thru Wengen to Lauterbrunen was a treat. The guide was excellent. Tour was a great value. Good food and local color at Kleine Scheidegg.

  • Great guide, great service, good value for money.
