This small group excursion in a comfortable minibus (max. 16 passengers) heads out over the Brünig Pass (1008m) to the majestic Bernese Oberland. Visit the remarkable Aare Gorge and cross it on a short walk on secure footbridges and through tunnels to the other end of the canyon. See the blue glacier water of the torrential river, which sculptured this impressive natural wonder in ancient times. After some free time for lunch, you ascend the Grimsel Pass through wild landscapes. On the top (2165m), an amazing view over the Dead Lake rewards you. Continuation to the imposing Rhone Glacier located at an altitude of 2300m. Walk through the 100m long magnificent blue Ice Tunnel to reach the Ice Room - a once in a lifetime experience! Warm up with a hot drink and relish the spectacular view down to the valley before you continue to the Furka Pass, the highest point of today's journey at 2431m. Enjoy the magnificent vistas over Gotthard Massif and the Urseren Valley before you descend to the mountain resort of Andermatt. Continue through the Schöllenen Gorge with the legendary Devil's Bridge. After a last picture stop, the return journey begins.

Due to the limited accessibility of the high mountain passes, the tour can only run for a few months in summer.
