It's time for us to take to you on a journey through beautiful Switzerland and to the highest mountain in Europe, Mont Blanc
Friday 13th April night: Meet up at the location indicated in the table below at the time indicated below.
Saturday 14th April – Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen and Geneva
In the morning, we will at the Swiss gem, Lauterbrunnen, which is often ranked as one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland. The very name ‘Lauter Brunnen’ (‘many fountains’) suggests the magnificence of this landscape. There are 72 waterfalls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, the most famous being the Staubbach Falls. Plunging almost 300 meters from an overhanging rock face, they are one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Europe.
Afterwards, our next stop is Interlaken, where you will have time to stroll around Switzerland’s most beautiful lake, Lake Brienz or you can join a thrilling jetboat ride!
In the afternoon, we make our way to Geneva. The city is the second most populous in Switzerland as well as the most populous in Romandy, the French Speaking region of Switzerland. It is the world’s center of diplomacy and home to Red Cross Headquarters, a number of UN agencies as well as several other international organizations. After some time admiring this wonderful Swiss city, we will head to our hotel accommodation situated on the outskirts of Geneva on the French border. After check-in, you can either relax at the hotel or go for a meal at one of the local restaurants.
Sunday 15th April – Chamonix & Mont Blanc
Today, we will travel through the Swiss countryside to Chamonix, and arrive at approx. 10.30am. Here, you can either spend time in France’s most iconic Alpine town or you can take a ride on a cable car to the Aiguille de Midi peak, which is a world-wide attraction with nearly half a million visitors per year* This is the closest you can get to the summit of Mont-Blanc without hiking or climbing with picturesque views of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps. Enjoy free time at the top to explore the terraces, and take in panoramic views over the Chamonix Valley and the peaks beyond. On a clear day, you may even see the Matterhorn, the Swiss mountain made famous on packages of Toblerone chocolate. Since 21st December 2013, the more fearless will take A STEP INTO THE VOID, which is a glass room with a glass floor, situated off the uppermost terrace of the Aiguille du Midi at an altitude of 3842 metres. It claims to be “the highest attraction in Europe”.
In the evening, we will meet back at the coach and make our way home!
