Lakes Cruises and 007

A great way to start the day is with a cruise across the glacier-fed lakes, Thun and Brienz. Choose motor power or opt for a restored paddle-wheel steamboat for an extra sense of adventure. Alternatively, if mountains are what you are here for, why not follow the trail of James Bond in On Her Majesty's Service, on the Schilthorn Cable Car.

The Top of Europe

A visit to the Bernese Oberland wouldn't be complete without a trip on Switzerland's most popular mountain railway, the Jungfrau Express. Tourists have been boarding its distinctive red and yellow carriages for over a hundred years, drinking in the breathtaking vistas as the train coils its way to Jungfraujoch - the 'Top of Europe'.

Day 4 Interlaken from Schynige Platte

St Beatus’ Cave and Schynige Platte

According to local folklore, a fierce dragon once lived deep in the interior of the immense Niederhorn Massif. Today the treasures of St Beatus' caves are there for all to explore and although there's no dragon, there are plenty of thrills including roaring subterranean waterfalls, limestone gorges and stunning grottos.

Day 5 Sherlock Holmes Museum, Meiringen
