Lucerne to Gornergrat & Zermatt day tour

Day trip from Lucerne by train with a local Switzerland private guide

Your private guide will meet you before the tour at your Hotel or Apartment in Zurich. Start your day without any worries.

We start our day between 7 and 8 AM 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 noon.

After a walk through Zermatt, we board the Gornergrat train. At Riffelalp we make a stop. An easy 15-minute hike will bring us down to a lake. At the back of this lake awaits us the mighty Matterhorn. A beautiful place to be and relax and ideal to take great pictures.
If you feel like it, we can hike a bit further for about an hour, or you can just relax, and take in the views. We head back to the Gornergrat Bahn to get to the top. The Gornergrat.
Located on 3,090 m - 10,140 ft.
(Riffelalp stop & hike to the lake is only
possible during summer months.)

Right in front, we overlook the Monte Rosa massif.
There will be enough time to relax, enjoy the view
and eat lunch.
Between 4-6 PM we make our way back to Zermatt.
We return on the most direct connection to Lucerne.

We arrive back in Lucerne between 10 and 11 PM
from where your guide will take you to your Hotel
or Apartment.
