Full description

Enjoy a day trip from Zurich to the winter wonderland of Mount Titlis with a guide. Discover the beauty of Lake Lucerne, enjoy a scenic drive to Engelberg, experience an unforgettable adventure on the Ice Flyer chairlift, and cross the Titlis Cliff Walk bridge suspended over the Swiss Alps. Departing from Zurich, take a bus ride over the Albis Pass and along the shores of Lake Lucerne on the way to the city of Lucerne. Once there, take a short tour of the city's most important sights, including a photo stop at the Lion Monument or Vierwaldstätter Lake, depending on traffic.

Afterward, enjoy some free time to explore Lucerne on your own. From there, continue the journey to Engelberg. The breathtaking ride up into the high alpine glaciers of Mount Titlis begins here.

From the Rotair revolving cable car on your way up to the mountain, get spectacular views of the deep crevasses in the glaciers, and the immense chunks of ice that break off in spectacular fashion. Enjoy incredible views over the Swiss Alps from the Panorama Restaurant on top of Mount Titlis. Visit the Ice Grotto, or take the Ice Flyer chairlift to get up close to the glaciers at an altitude of over 9,800 feet (3,000 meters).

Adventure seekers can slide through the snow and down the mountainside on a snow tube  – the choice is yours.

I’ll start off by saying the tour was done very well and my tour guide was excellent. Mount Titlis itself was a wonderful experience and had breathtaking views, definitely something worth experiencing. The reason I am only giving four stars is because my group missed out on a part of the excursion (the cliff walk) due to inclement weather. Now I know that’s no fault of the tour or the tour guide, however there was no mention anywhere of the possibility of missing a part of the excursion due to weather. I wish that was made clear somewhere in the description so I could’ve planned the trip better according to the weather. Other than that, a great tour.

Wow! I was solo traveling in Zurich and decided to “splurge” and book this trip to get out of the city and see the Alps. It was one of my favorite experiences I have had while traveling. The tour was extremely well organized and you get to see and do a lot. The guide Lars gave clear instructions of where to meet and what to do. He also provided interesting information throughout. The weather was beautiful so we got to do and see everything. The driver, Jose, drove slowly and carefully through the country side so we really got to appreciate the incredible views. I will recommend this to anyone who visits Zurich. Money well spent! Danke schön!

We had great weather so all activities at the top were open! It was magical! Would highly recommend this one!
