Zurich - Aare Gorge - Rhone Glacier Ice Grotto - Furka Pass - Devil's Bridge - ZurichThis small group excursion in a comfortable minibus (max. 16 passengers) heads out over the Brunig Pass (1008m) to the majestic Bernese Oberland. As part of our tour, you'll get the chance to walk across the Aare Gorge by way of secure footbridges and tunnels to the other end of the canyon. See the blue glacier water of the torrential river that sculptured this impressive natural wonder in ancient times. After some free time for lunch, we'll ascend the Grimsel Pass through wild landscapes. An amazing view over the Dead Lake awaits you at the top. We'll continue to the imposing Rhone Glacier at an altitude of 2,300 meters above sea level. Walk through the 100-meter long Ice Tunnel to reach the Ice Room, a once in a lifetime experience! Warm up with a hot drink and relish the spectacular view of the valley below before we continue to Furka Pass, the highest point of today's journey at 2431 meters. Enjoy the magnificent vistas over Gotthard Massif and the Urseren Valley before we descend to the mountain resort of Andermatt. And last but not least, we'll visit Schollenen Gorge with the legendary Devil's Bridge.Tips:We normally return to the meeting point in Zurich at around 7:30pm
