Tour description:
We start our with a train ride from Lucerne to Berne. We change the trains in Bern and take the more scenic regional train on the mountain route instead of the route through the tunnel. The first of many beautiful journeys today.

We travel on a further set of regional trains, that will bring us to Zermatt by 1 PM.

From Zermatt, we take a mountain railway (40-minute ride each way) to the Gornergrat peak, located at 3089m/10134 ft. above sea level. On a clear day, we have perfect views of the Monte Rosa massif, with the Dufourspitze, the highest peak in Switzerland, the famous Matterhorn and the Gornerglacier.

Back in Zermatt, you can have some free time for shopping or an early dinner (a la carte, not included in the tour price). At the latest by 6.30 PM, we depart from Zermatt and travel on the fast route to Lucerne.
