The highest point in Central Switzerland, you are in for a range of fun-rides over the snow here. Take in the stunning scenery of the Alps - white snow covered mountains merging with the clear blue of the sky makes for a great sight!

    You have the option to visit the spectacular Ice Grotto, ride the Ice Flyer – a chairlift that spans the glacier crevasses of Mount Titlis, or slide down 150 metres on a snow tube called the Fun Lift.The gondola revolving cable car ROTAIR revolves 360 degrees during the five-minute trip, treating you to idyllic panoramic views of steep rock faces, deep crevasses and distant snow-covered mountain peaks

    Itinerary

    The tour starts from the Tourist Information Centre in Train Station of Lucerne, Zentralstrasse 5, in front of Mc Donald’s. You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach and taken to Engelberg, accompanied by a multi-lingual guide speaking English, Spanish and German.

    Engelberg is a famous ski resort at a height of 3028 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. The tour ends in the Old Town of Lucerne at Pfistergasse 5.
