Your itinerary

​Today you'll fly to Zurich and transfer by train to the mountain village of Wengen. Get to know your travelling companions over a welcome drink and dinner at the hotel this evening​.

​After breakfast, we'll take the train to Brienz and then board a Postbus – an iconic yellow Swiss bus – to Ballenberg. Here we'll enjoy a tour of the open-air museum, which features more than 100 centuries-old buildings. We'll also have the chance to participate in the Ballenberg Championships! You may not be familiar with putting the stone (throwing a heavy stone) or platzgen (disc throwing), so this is your chance to find out. After this you'll have earned your traditional Swiss lunch. Our day ends with a scenic cruise on Lake Brienz​.

​Today's excursion starts with a train ride to Lauterbrunnen where we will take a Postbus to the Trummelbach Falls. You'll have free time to discover this site, a series of 10 glacier-fed waterfalls inside a mountain. Next we head to Stechelberg Schilthornbahn followed by a cable car ride to Birg. Offering stunning vistas from its viewing platform, it is the last change before we take another cable car to the top of Schilthorn – the '007 mountain'. Situated on its summit is a revolving restaurant, Piz Gloria, which was used as the location for Blofeld's HQ in the 1969 James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. Enjoy lunch here as you soak up views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. Our final stop is Mürren, a pretty village perched on a cliff-top and offering amazing views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley, which we'll reach by cable car. This evening you'll get to taste local specialities including the potato-based dish rösti, sausages and raclette cheese during a buffet dinner.​

​Located in the heart of the Alps, Wengen is one of Switzerland's most beautiful resorts. Join your Local Guide for a culinary tour before enjoying an afternoon at leisure. The culinary theme continues this evening when we gather as a group to cook our own cheese fondue​.

​We start today with train rides to Interlaken and then Alpnachstad, where we'll take the cogwheel train to the top of Mount Pilatus. Our destination is the historic mountain hotel, Pilatus Kulm, located at 2,132 metres above sea level. Here we'll enjoy an alphorn concert. We'll then take the cable car to Fräkmüntegg and climb aboard a gondola, enjoying wonderful views as we head down to Kriens. We'll board a trolley bus to Lucerne, a lakeside city flanked by mountains and boasting many historic sights. This evening, we'll toast our adventures over a glass of Prosecco at our hotel's Penthouse Bar, which offers fabulous views across the Alps, before being served a 4-course dinner.

Today you’ll travel by train to Zurich for your return flight to the UK.​
