(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Lucerne, Interlaken & Berner Oberland, Lausanne
This private family tour of Switzerland is an ideal combination of Swiss villages, Alpine landscapes, great food, and luxury hotels in Switzerland’s most beautiful and most family-friendly destinations.
Begin in Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. With your private guide, explore the highlights of the Old Town and also visit the Swiss Transport Museum. One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion in the region. Take a cruise across Lake Lucerne, passing lakeside farmhouses and small villages clustered at the bottom of high peaks. Then, take a cog railway up iconic Mount Pilatus for panoramic views over the lake and mountains, and perhaps opt for hiking and other outdoor adventures in the fresh mountain air.
Continue to Interlaken, the gateway to the dramatic mountain landscapes of the Berner Oberland. En route, enjoy a stop in Brienz, a small village that is famous for woodcarving. Spend two nights in Interlaken at the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa, an excellent and historic resort hotel. Enjoy a privately guided excursion into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains. On arrival at Jungfraujoch, known as the “Top of Europe” (elevation 11,388 feet), see enormous glaciers, impressive Alpine peaks such as the Eiger, and verdant valleys far below. Throughout the journey, stop in villages such as Wengen and Grindelwald to hike or take in the spectacular views as you please.
Next, visit Bern, the beautiful capital of Switzerland with a UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town. Also stop in the atmospheric hill town of Gruyeres to visit a local cheese maker to learn about and taste the region’s renowned Gruyere cheese, and also visit the nearby factory of one of Switzerland’s premier chocolate makers. Continue to Lausanne and the beautiful Lake Geneva region for two nights at one of Switzerland’s most luxurious lakeside resort hotels. One day, visit Chateau de Chillon—Switzerland’s most interesting castle—which sits on a small island in Lake Geneva and offers evocative insights into the daily life of medieval aristocracy.
This tour can easily be extended to include more time or with visits to other family-friendly destinations in Switzerland or elsewhere in Europe.
