Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Board your coach in central Lucerne for the scenic journey south to Engelberg, departing in the afternoon. On arrival at this picturesque resort town situated in a valley below Mt Titlis, your guide accompanies you inside the aerial cableway for a 45-minute ride to the glacier’s 10,000-foot (3,020-meter) summit.

Take in dramatic views of the snowy Bernese Alps through panoramic windows, then disembark at the mountaintop for roughly two hours of free time. Perhaps start with a visit to Glacier Cave to see ice crystals in the frozen underground grotto. Admire the glacial landscape from the rotating Titlis Rotair gondola, which affords 360-degree views, or crunch along the snow on the Cliff Walk for vertigo-inducing vistas. You can gaze down at the icy depths from the Ice Flyer chairlift and hop on a snow tube at Titlis Glacier Park for downhill thrills (May–October). Admission to each acclaimed glacier attraction is included, weather permitting.

If the brisk mountain air makes you feel hungry, replenish at one of several restaurants at the summit (own expense).

At the prearranged time, meet your guide for the descent back to Engelberg where your coach is ready to return to Lucerne. Your tour then concludes in Lucerne Old Town.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Lucerne Station
Board your coach in central Lucerne, and travel south to Engelberg, a glorious alpine village tucked in the shadows of Mt Titlis.
Stop At:  
Mount Titlis
On arrival, hop aboard the aerial cableway with your guide, and then ride to the glacier’s summit — some 10,000 feet (3,020 meters) above sea level. The 45-minute journey is all about the views! As Engelberg slips from sight, the dramatic beauty of the Bernese Alps takes center stage, so sit back, ogle the vistas and relax. At the top, how you spend your time is up to you. Make the most of two hours of mountaintop fun by strolling around the summit, feeling the crunch of snow under your boots while taking in the glacial landscape.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Titlis Cliff Walk
Or perhaps visit some of Mt Titlis’ renowned attractions. Admire 360-degree views aboard the rotating Titlis Rotair gondola; ride on the Ice Flyer chairlift and gaze down to the icy depths below; slip your way down the slopes while snow tubing in the Titlis Glacier Park; walk along the Cliff Walk for vertigo-inducing views; or visit the Glacier Cave to see millions of ice crystals in a frozen underground grotto, far below the glacier’s surface. If the brisk mountain air makes you feel hungry, refuel with alpine fare at one of the summit’s several restaurants. All food and drinks are at your own expense. At the prearranged time, meet your guide for the descent back to Engelberg where your coach is ready to return to Lucerne. Info: Activities are included, but dependent on weather conditions

Amazing experience with Viator
Arpit
, Feb 2020
It was a good experience with Viator, the tour operator assigned for this trip was "best of Switzerland tours" it was a good tour company in Switzerland and what is written is provided too. I felt that the Tour Guide showed less interest in telling the details of Mt. Titlis and improvement required for interaction with the Tourist.

Not too good, nor too Bad

The duration of the tour was short. Being the tourist season would have been better if the tour started a bit early and was of more duration.But overall experience was ok.

Dear Aroram, Thank you very much for having joined our half-day tour to Mt. Titlis from Lucerne. The aim of our tour is to give our guests the possibility to visit Mt. Titlis in just half a day. As we can totally understand that you would have liked to spend more time on top of Mt. Titlis, we have created a new overnight package called “Alpine Dreams” that gives you the opportunity to explore all activities available in two days. For those that would like to go early in the morning, there is always the possibility to reach Mt. Titis individually by public transport. However, having a tour guide with you, who serves as a direct contact person in case of any occurring questions, is a reason why many people opt for a guided tour instead of an individual visit. We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful stay in Switzerland and would be happy to welcome you back on our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

All went well right from the pic up...except the wind (which is not in anybody control). Since, this is December, expect high winds and no access to Chair lift and Cliff walk. Our guide Mr. Pedro was really good and helpful.

It is a very nice place, unfortunately the weather was not so good on the day cloudy and cold. We got great view until close to the top and then we were in cloud. But some great views anyway. I had the good fortune to have been there some years ago but on a good day so I know how beutiful it looks when it is sunny. Well worth the trip.

This trip was a waste of time and money. It was SO crowed and some very pushy people. When we got to the top the tubing of course was closed, and not because of lack of snow. The ride up we were crammed into the cable car that you couldn't see out. The only thing at the top was a chair lift ride . We walked around in the snow a bit and headed back down. I just wasted $250. for 2. People save your money. We got to the bottom at the exact time or maybe a little early for our bus ride back to Lucerne and we had to wait at least 30 minutes for everyone else. Very frustrating , we were told in the beginning that if you weren't back in time the bus would leave you and you would have to make your own way back. This was not fare for everyone else waiting on the bus. I want my money back. !!

Dear Bhm1951, Thank you very much for having joined our half day tour to Mt. Titlis from Lucerne and for taking the time to submit a review of your experience. With Mount Titlis being on the bucket list of many people visiting Switzerland, it can get crowded at peak times. With the increasing number of visitors each year, the TITLIS management organization is working hard to optimize customer flows to make the journey as convenient as possible for our guests. The snowtubing activity at the TITLIS glacier park is only available between May and July (snow toy run until September, depending on the weather conditions) before it starts operating again at the Trübsee snow park just before Christmas. However, there were various other activities available such as the Ice Flyer, the Cliff Walk and the Glacier cave. Unfortunately, we are confronted with late arrivals day in and day out. Whenever we are missing guests for the way back to Lucerne or Zürich, we try to contact them on the phone number provided and try to help them finding back to their bus or to arrange an individual train ride back at the customer’s own expense. From the tour guide’s report, we see that you arrived in Lucerne with a minor delay of 15 minutes, which we would like to apologize for. As you have participated in the full tour and had not missed any services that were advertised as included and not weather permitting, we regret to inform you that we cannot offer you a full refund for the tour. We hope that you were still able to enjoy a wonderful stay in Switzerland and hope to welcome you back on one of our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

Enjoyed the whole trip. Reached the 10k meter and tried the snow tubing. BTW, we are a group of 40 to 51 years old and my mum is 74.
