Description

From Lucerne, a comfortable coach will take you to Engelberg, while the beautiful scenery of the Swiss Mittelland passes by. An experienced tour guide will provide you with interesting information about this region before you leave the bus in Engelberg. From Engelberg, the fantastic mountain and glacier world of the Titlis rises to the heights of the Swiss Alps. The Titlis is the highest peak of a mountain range that is 20km long, and runs moderately down into the valley only here in Engelberg. All around, the mountain massif drops steeply into the depths.

In order to reach the airy peaks, you start the ascent with the cable car "Titlis Xpress", which takes you over wide mountain levels and massive rocks to the station "Stand". Already the gondola ride offers you an enchanting view of the glacier world at the foot of the Titlis. At 2428 m.a.s.l. station altitude you leave the gondola.

This is followed by one of the absolute highlights of the excursion: you board the rotating gondola lift "Rotair", the first rotating gondola lift in the world. On this really special ride you can enjoy an overwhelming 360° panoramic view of the steep slopes of the Titlis, the deep crevasses and the surrounding mountain peaks. The cable car turns an incredible 360° during the 5-minute ride to the summit. Once at the summit, a landscape of eternal snow stretches before your eyes. Here begins your unique glacier experience: visit the deep blue glacier grotto and experience over 5000 year old ice masses up close. Ten meters below the glacier surface, filigree ice sculptures and a 150 meter long path through the eternal ice layer of the glacier await you

After the underground glacier experience you can float over the glacier with the chairlift "Ice Flyer" and marvel at the huge crevasses from a comfortable bird's eye view

This impressive experience is rounded off by a visit to the glacier park, which in summer and in good weather conditions allows you to ski down the slopes on giant rubber rings. To keep the thrills high, you can venture across the Titlis Cliff Walk, a suspension bridge that spans a 500-meter drop and holds the record for being the highest suspension bridge. 150 steps of pure adrenaline at an altitude of 3041 meters above sea level!

To let the impressions you've had so far wash over you, you can take a rest in one of the restaurants and let your eyes wander over the wide peaks dipped in snow The eventful day draws to a close with the subsequent return trip to the valley

In the late afternoon you will reach the monastery village of Engelberg again, from where you will start the return journey in the coach to Lucerne An unforgettable snow and ice adventure for young and old!

Duration 5.5 hours, start 12:30 p.m
