Day 1 - To Interlaken

Begin your journey to the peaks of Switzerland by taking the Eurostar to Paris. On arrival into Paris self-transfer to Paris Gare du Lyon for your connection by the high-speed scenic journey to Basel, from here you will connect to Interlaken, where you will check into your hotel for a 2-night stay.

Day 2 - Jungfrau Express

After breakfast at the hotel, you will head to the "Top of Europe" on the Jungfrau Railway. At the top you will be 11000 feet above sea level, with the top of the Jungfraujoch offering unbelievable views of other mountain giants such as the Eiger and Monch.
