This small group excursion in a comfortable minibus (max. 16 passengers) heads out over the Brünig Pass (1,008m) to the majestic Bernese Oberland. Visit the remarkable Aare Gorge and cross it on a short walk on secure footbridges and through tunnels to the other end of the canyon. See the blue glacier water of the torrential river, which sculptured this impressive natural wonder in ancient times.

After some free time for lunch, you ascend the Grimsel Pass through wild landscapes. On the top (2,165m), an amazing view over the Dead Lake rewards you. Continuate to the imposing Rhone Glacier located at an altitude of 2,300m. Walk through the 100m long magnificent blue Ice Tunnel to reach the Ice Room - a once in a lifetime experience!
