Tour description provided by Viator

This is an adventure excursion to the highest vantage point in central Switzerland! A pleasant ride on a comfortable deluxe motor coach takes us to the mountain resort of Engelberg in central Switzerland, where we board the aerial cableway for a 40 minute journey from the green valley to the high alpine glacier region at 3020 m/10000 ft. (This altitude guarantees snow the whole year round.)
Taste adventure on this excursion to Mount Titlis, the highest vantage point in Central Switzerland. The guided trip from Zürich in a comfortable deluxe motorcoach takes the scenic route to the mountain village of Engelberg, the starting point of your glacier experience. There are three sections of cable cars including the ride up in the world’s first ever 360° revolving ROTAIR aerial gondola taking you from one world to another. From the green valley floor to the high white glacier region. (It really is quite breathtaking!) You’ve now reached the Mt.Titlis Glacier Paradise at 10000 ft / 3020 m where snow and ice are guaranteed the whole year round. Take in the breath-taking vista of the Alps from the sun terrace, or the wind-protected Toporama – the so called “south face window”. Visit one of the restaurants and let the chefs spoil you with their culinary creations! Whatever. The choice is yours. Included in the tour price you have unlimited access to these major attractions (weather permitting) of Mt.Titlis Glacier Paradise: Visit the Ice Grotto where you can feel what it’s like to be inside a glacier. Or walk over Europe’s highest suspension bridge for more phenomenal views. Or try out, if you dare, the Ice Flyer, the latest in glacier chairlifts which lets you look down into the aweinspiring depths of glacier crevasses and ice falls. Or if it’s fun you’re after, the snow slide on the Fun Lift is for you – snow in summer, too! (The Glacier Park which offers the snow slides is open from May to September and will be moved from the top to the middle station in winter therefor the opening depends then on the winter snow conditions). The Mt.Titlis Glacier Paradise is truly a treat for young and old! On the trip back to Zürich you’ll still have an hour at leisure in Lucerne where you can walk across Lucerne’s trademark – the famous covered wooden Chapel Bridge.
