Peaks of Switzerland

About
Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked alpine country of roughly 7.5 million people in Western Europe with an area of 41,285 km². Switzerland is a federal republic consisting of 26 states. These states are called cantons. Berne is the seat of the federation and de facto capital, while the country's economic centres are its two global cities, Geneva and especially Zürich. Switzerland has high degrees of economic freedom, immigrants, and globally-oriented business. It is one of the richest countries in the world.

Day 1: London - Zurich - Lausanne - Hotel
Met the Tour Leader at the Gatwick airport. After checking in and clearing the necessary procedures, boarded the flight to Zurich. Boarded the coach for Lausanne, (the second largest city on Lake Geneva). Spent time around the lake and visited the Olympic museum.

Day 2: Lausanne - Geneva - Bern - Hotel
Departed for Geneva, where we have taken for a short tour, which included the United Nations building, the Flower Clock, the English Gardens and the Jet d’eau fountain. Then proceeded to the capital of Switzerland, Bern. For all its political status, Bern is a tiny city which retains a small town’s easy approach to life. The attraction of this place is its ambience; traffic is kept out of the Old Town and you can enjoy wandering the streets and alleys, café-hopping or shopping.

Day 3: Mt. Schilthorn - Harder Kulm - Interlaken
In the morning after breakfast, we took a scenic drive to Lauterbrunnen to begin our journey via various cable cars, to reach the peak of Mt. Schilthorn (2970m). Mt. Schilthorn was the location for thrilling action scenes in the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. We also had the opportunity to enjoy the delicious food available in the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria. Then we visited the peak of Harder Kulm on a funicular. This attractive vantage point offers fine views of the Bernese Oberland “capital” (between the Lakes of Brienz and Thun) as well as the entire Jungfrau Region. Later, we drove towards the town of Interlaken, where we had some free time for shopping.

Day 4: Mt. Jungfrau - Trummelbach falls
This day was full of spectacular sightseeing, commenced with the town of Lauterbrunnen. From there, we took the cogwheel train to the peak of Mt. Jungfrau. Lying at 3,454 metres above sea level, this is Europe’s highest altitude railway station. At the top, visited the Ice Palace, which is 30 metres under the surface of the glacier and marvel at the life-size ice sculptures. Then we visited the Sphinx - Europe’s highest altitude vantage point at 3,571 metres for a spectacular view of Aletsch Glacier. After coming down, we visited Trummelbach falls, from where we can see various waterfalls from within the mountain.

Day 5: Mt.Titlis - Luzern
We drove towards the enchanting town of Engelberg, to commence our ascent of the magnificent Mt.Titlis, aboard the world’s first ever revolving cable car. This gives a panoramic view of Switzerland. Arriving at the peak, (which is 10,000ft above sea level), you can enjoy the views of the surrounding snow capped mountains. Then we visited one of the most sacred sights of Luzern, the Lion Monument and the Chapel Bridge.

Day 6: Rhine Falls - Zurich Airport - London
In the morning after breakfast, we proceeded to the largest waterfalls in Europe, the Rhine falls, famed for its elegance and its greatness in size. Later, we took a small tour of Zurich, covering The Limmat River, Grossmunster Church and Zurichsee. Finally, we departed for Zurich airport for our return flight to London.
