Discover the majestic Alps! Pentecost Holiday Road Trip 29.05. – 01.06.
08:00 Arrive at Interlaken
You can decide on a few ways to explore this mesmerizing lake district area in Switzerland. We have specially organized very interesting activities for you at Interlaken. You could explore Lauterbrunnen, an impressive valley that is home to 72 waterfalls. Or use Lauterbrunnen as a base to go up to Jungfraujoch and take in unforgettable views at almost 3,500 meters above sea level. You could also choose to remain at Interlaken and take your time to discover the peaceful Swiss-alps town.
——-chose your trip style, there are 3 different options…..
Option 3: Explore Interlaken by taking a boat cruise to discover the scenic Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. You can also make your way to Harder Klum, where you will find a viewing platform that offers you a panorama of the Alps. Go on a funicular ride and enjoy the scenery along the way, then relax at the Panorama Restaurant, which looks like a castle! You will have loads of fun taking Instagram-worthy photos and exploring the area with your travel mates, or simply relax and soak up the unforgettable scenery.
——-option 1 & option 2 is described in the section below——–
18:30 Gather for departure at Interlaken
After a long day of exploring and fun, we will make our way to the hotel in the quaint alpine city of Annecy.
After checking in to the hotel, you can rest up early or head out to town with your travel mates to explore the old town or have a late meal.
With around 3 hours to explore this area, you can start with a quick breakfast if you like, then take a short hike in search of the awe-inspiring Staubbach Falls. Admire the pretty chalet houses, one of the signature architecture of Switzerland, and if you are lucky, you can even catch a glimpse of the Alpine cows out and about on the field.
Option 2: Jungfraujoch
Another highly recommended activity is to explore Jungfraujoch. If after a short walk around Lauterbrunnen you wish to see and do more, then you should head up to Jungfraujoch, impressively known as the “Top of Europe”! Here you will find a majestic blanket of ice and snow, awe-inspiring views of ancient rocks and glacier peaks, and see the mountains meet the sky. The experience is truly one of a kind. For a fixed price, you will get train transportation from Lauterbrunnen up to Jungfraujoch and return to Interlaken. You will also have access to some of the must-see sites.
On your way to Jungfraujoch, you will arrive by train at the panoramic Eismeer station and get to see what Switzerland must have looked like during the last Ice Age! Head to the Sphinx Observation Deck, an astronomical observatory, for more stunning views. Then enter the Ice Palace, for pieces of art and sculpture carved out of ice and frozen by time. Step into the renowned Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven for a tour and to buy some delightful chocolate souvenirs before venturing to the Alpine Sensation museum as well as watching the Jungfrau Panorama film that will give you a 360-degree panorama of the mountain, 365 days a year, regardless of the weather! Now that the weather is warmer, there are also different outdoor activities you can take part in with your travel companions. Consider the adrenaline-pumping ziplining or sledding through the Snow Fun Park!
08:50 Arrive in Chamonix
It is highly recommended that you take the famous cable car “Aiguille du Midi” and go up to the upper station of Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. The upper station is 1000 meters below the peak and the panorama from here is fantastic, so get ready to take some awesome pictures to share on Instagram and Facebook.
After spending some time at the upper station at Mont Blanc, you can return to Chamonix to explore the area and try some specialty food and local drinks. Chamonix is also a great base for taking the rack and pinion railway to Montenvers, where you get to walk through an ice cave to reach the Mer de Glace glacier. Do consider seizing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity if you like to experience more ice and snow!
18:00 Continue on to Geneva
Gather for departure towards the vibrant Geneva, most well known for its watch-making and Swiss chocolates!
19:15 Arrive in Geneva
Geneva is a multi-cultural melting pot. You will have the free time to explore the historic heart of Geneva, stroll along the cobblestone streets as well as admire the serenity of Lake Geneva. Look out for the Place du Bourg-de-Four, the commercial center of the city, with fountains, restaurants, and shops. There are many parks in Geneva, but if you wish to see an elevated view of the city, you can consider walking to the Banc de la Treille park.
Some other visit-worthy sites include: The Palace of Nations, headquarter of the United Nations Office, The International Red Cross, and Red Crescent Museum, as well as the impressive Reformation Wall with a fascinating story behind it.
For dinner, why not gather with your travel companions and try out some local Swiss dishes? You can share a cheese fondue, look out of delicacies like lodgepole, a sausage with cumin, or fo for a hearty serving of Rosti. For a cheaper option, you can pop by the supermarkets for some warm snacks and drinks!
