What To Expect

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.

Lucerne (Pass By)

Board your coach in central Lucerne (Frankenstrasse 2-4) , and travel south to Engelberg, a glorious alpine village tucked in the shadows of Mt 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. Take a ride with the revolving cable car "Rotair" and enjoy the spectacular sights of the glacier's deep crevasses and gigantic ice boulders.

Excellent trip !!
Junaid_S, Mar 2023
Amazing trip !!! Thoroughly enjoyed with my family.....the tour guide on bus no 2 was too good and had shared lots of information about Switzerland. Would love to take another trip again as this was our first trip.
The swiss alps are out of this world gorgeous
Mathias_M, Mar 2023
Everything was well organized, and Dario was an incredibly friendly host! We were also very lucky with the march weather - sunny, blue skies and just one lovely experience!
Perfect Day
Dee_F, Mar 2023
Getting on the bus and getting there was very easy and simple. The guide was very clear about the directions and gave us a general map of information in the area. The area itself is very well designed with excellent signage, and we were easily able to do all of the activities. I would recommend bringing lunch with you, is that the only activity we didn’t participate in, but I would hate to waste time eating when there’s so many beautiful things to see.
Winter wonderland
Wendy_C, Mar 2023
Fantastic day! Fun for the non-skier too. Just enough time to experience the sites and grab a quick lunch with amazing scenery. I highly recommend this trip.
The tour should have been longer

Breathtaking views of alps

Venkata_B, Dec 2022
Excellent trip. The guide was very helpful and informative. We all enjoyed the trip even though it was foggy at the top.
Kylie_Y, Dec 2022
The ride up the mountain was breathtakingly beautiful. The activities at the top of the mountain were so much fun, especially the ice flyer and ice cave.
This is not a tour. It’s transportation and someone to buy the ticket.
Oliver_Z, Dec 2022
This is not a tour. It’s transportation to the mountain. Everything included on this tour is included on the ticket price you can buy directly from the mountain.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Oliver, Thank you very much for joining our Mt Titlis tour and sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to read that our tour didn’t meet your expectations. Our tour offers the possibility for a seamless journey to Mt Titlis. It is true that Mt Titlis can be visited using public transport, where the return ticket would cost CHF 134.80. Our tour costs only CHF 2.20 more, which we consider a very fair price taking into account that you have a tour guide along with you organizing the tickets and explaining some interesting facts about Switzerland. Additionally, the bus drives directly to the valley station of Engelberg whereas, by public transport, you would need to walk an additional 13 minutes from the train station to reach the valley station. You get full guidance and support during the entire stay. If the tour guide didn’t provide enough explanations about the history or culture of our country, we would like to apologize on his/her behalf and will gladly pass on this feedback to the tour guide as a suggestion for improvement. Still, we hope you enjoyed the beautiful scenery from the top of the mountain and to welcome you on one of our other tours soon. Kind regards, Ambika - Best of Switzerland Tours
Just being able to go up...
Angela_W, Dec 2022

An easy way to see Titlis
Jordan_K, Dec 2022
We had a great time on this tour. If you want to visit Titlis without the hassle of figuring it out yourself, this is a good option for you. Titlis was crowded, like you’d expect, but otherwise we really enjoyed our time.
Great Experience
Michelle_S, Nov 2022
Had a blast and the views were spectacular!! The suspension bridge, ice cave and the ice-flyer were all amazing! Everyone from tour guide to those who dressed us in traditional attire were the nicest.!
Fun day at 10,000 feet
Kurt_L, Nov 2022
The gondola ride and suspension bridge were great. Nice meal and drinks for lunch at the restaurant was a pleasant surprise.
Great opportunity to visit the Alps
amy_c, Oct 2022
Loved being able to see the glacier and the cliff walk. The rotating tram was cool too. The ice flyer is a chair loft and was fine, but we are skiers so that was not a highlight.
Marvelous trip
Liza_C, Oct 2022
Playing in the snow on the top of a mountain is very nice experience 👌 Especially for my friend which is her first time to see and touch the real thick snow 🙃
I recommend this tour
Maxine_T, Oct 2022
