Itinerary

  • You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach and taken to Engelberg, accompanied by a guide speaking (English, Spanish and German). Engelberg is a famous ski resort at a height of 1000 metres. Now travel time from the Endelberg to Stand station will be cut in half due to a new introduced ‘TITLIS Xpress’; the 8-seater gondola. You will have to change only once at the station 'Stand' to reach Mt. Titlis. The new Gondolas are equipped with generous panoramic windows and a modern levelled easy walk-in entry coupled with a cabin height of 2.1 meters will ensure a smooth and comfortable entry and exit. Waiting time at the Valley Station will be significantly reduced; journey from Engelberg to the station Stand takes just 16 minutes and thus more time can be spent on Mt. Titlis. Mount Titlis is a glacier paradise at a height of 3000 metres and offers an amazing snow and ice experience on the highest viewpoint in Central Switzerland. After reaching the top, you can enjoy a variety of attractions and the magnificent scenery of the Alps. There are restaurants, a sun terrace, Ice Grotto and much more. You can also board the Ice Flyer chairlift and enjoy sliding over the snow or use the Fun Lift for sledging. After a fun-filled day in the snow, return to Lucerne by your coach.
