    I took the tour starting in Interlaken, but it actually started in Zurich, which would make it a very very long day. I think there was a stop in Interlaken for the Zurich people, and several of them didn't get back to the bus in time, so that delayed our departure by at least 20 minutes. The tour itself in JungFrau, including the new fast cable ride up to the Eiger was excellent. The cogwheel train up to the summit is uneventful, as it is mostly inside the mountain. The facilities at the "Top of Europe" are superb. Must better than at the top of Mont Blac, or the Matterhorn.

  • Interlaken: Helicopter Skydiving 2-Hour Experience

    4. Interlaken: Helicopter Skydiving 2-Hour Experience

    Don't miss skydiving the Swiss Alps – an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience! Climb up to 15,000 feet in a helicopter, take a big breath, and exit the perfectly sound chopper to free fall over the magnificent mountains. The helicopter skydive starts with an introduction video, ground practicing, and gearing up. Then you can admire the breathtaking mountain scenery as you enjoy the helicopter ride. Express your final prayers before the door to free fall opens. Jump and look back at the disappearing helicopter. Skydive together with your tandem master into the blue of the Swiss skies. Pull the opening handle of your parachute and glide gently into the valley for the safe landing.

    This will remain as one of the most memorable activities you will do in your life. Christian and team were so chilled out that it felt like going for a spin over the Alps. The best part about this experience is that you will get to ride a chopper over the Alps, free fall over the Alps and paraglide over the Alps, all in one package.. Loved the dedication and professionalism of the entire crew.. i'll come back and do this with my wife again soon. Don't miss this, once in a lifetime opportunity ! SKY IS THE LIMIT !
