Enjoy the natural beauty of one of the wildest mountain regions of the Alps


The Bernese Oberland is a popular and attractive region south of the Swiss capital of Bern. In a small area, you'll find a very diversified landscape with lakes, snow-capped mountains, little mountain villages, cogwheel trains, hiking trails and much, much more.
On this tour I'll show you the highlights of this natural wonderland:
- deep canyons
- powerful waterfalls
- turquoise lakes
- viewpoints to the mighty summits of this region, such as Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau
- picturesque villages with alpine history.

Itinerary

- Aareschlucht (mindblowing Canyon)
- splendid lake Brienz with a boat ride
- Hotel Giessbach with magnificent waterfalls
- Picturesque lake village Iseltwald
- Interlaken, a city in the mountains with good shopping opportunity
- Lauterbrunnen, a mystical village close to the mighty Staubbachfalls
- Underground Trümmelbachfalls
- A train ride to Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg and Grindelwald permitting fantastic views of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau
- Grindelwald, at the base of famous Wetterhorn

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I'll pick you up from your hotel

Duration: 2 days
We leave Lucerne on the first day around 8 am and will get back on the 2nd day around 8 pm.

End location: The trips ends at your hotel or any other place in Lucerne or on route

Duration: 2 days

We are very flexible to cope with your interests and passion. Good weather permitting we can take a bit more time into consideration to explore the region and getting back late would be for me not an asset.
