Enjoy both European unique glacier waterfalls and where world-famous James Bond's Her Majesty was filmed


Enjoy from the 007 James Bond mountain and revolving restaurant breathtaking and unforgettable views of the famous Trilogie Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and many more peaks.

We may take the time for the full experience of 007, Bond walk, pictures, souvenirs etc.

Before going up to the top we will enjoy the European unique glacier waterfalls. Spectacular views of raging water falls. The only glacier waterfalls in Europe inside the mountains and still accessible.

In addition we will have a short visit of Mürren, an authentically traditional, traffic free and stress-less mountain village. The wooden chalets, the breath-taking view of the snow covered Alps will leave an unforgettable image in your memory.

This trip is normally possible from beginning of April until beginning of November - Schilthorn only is possible all year round!

Itinerary

- Pick up in Interlaken Ost (train station)
- Train and bus ride, visit of the European unique glacier waterfalls (about 1 to 1. 5 hour stay. The stay includes a short walk on paved ground with some steps)
- Bus and cable car and visit of Schilthorn
- Way back to Interlaken Ost with short walk between (of about 1. 5 hours may be included in between, depending on goup, weather and afflux).
- Picnic with typical local Swiss products on the way.

For the waterfalls: At the end of March/beginning of April and at the end of October/beginning of November the exact itinerary needs to be decided a few days prior to the tour date due to the opening hours of the waterfalls.

Actual duration may vary and depends as well on the afflux at glacier waterfalls and cable cars. Weather may also have an influence on the timetable. However, it seldom happens.
