Tour description provided by Viator

Set off on a Swiss alpine adventure encompassing gorges and glaciers on this full day, guided coach tour from Zurich. Even better, you'll travel in a personalized small group with a maximum of 16 people!

Sit back as your coach ventures over Brunig Pass (1008 meters) to the Bernese Oberland (highlands). Walk along a secure footbridge to get an impressive view of Aare Gorge, spend approximately 1.5 hours here before ascending through wild landscapes to Grimsel Pass (2165 meters).

At an altitude of 2300 meters you'll arrive at Rhone Glacier. Don't forget your camera as you explore the fascinating long blue ice tunnel leading to the Ice Room for approximately one hour. From here your small group day tour will tackle the Furka Pass, offering spectacular views over the Gotthard Massif.

Discover the Urseren Valley followed by Schollenen Gorge with its legendary Devils Bridge at the base of St. Gotthard Mountain. Your full day guided tour concludes this evening with a coach return to Zurich.
