Switzerland through the back door! We drive along unttouched landscape, stunning Grimselpasses and imposing mountain ridges. Visit the Rhone glacier, walk through the ice gateway. Feel pure adrenaline from the ride with Europe’s steepest funicular and discover the amazing Aare Gorge.


A route like this has never been offered before: A tour off the main tourist track. In the morning we drive to the heart of the Bernese Oberland, drive along the winding route up to Grimselpass, down to the South side of Switzerland and up the Furka pass. We stop at the Rhoneglacier. Get in touch with the permanent ice world by walking through the ice gateway and experience the climate change at the glacier walk.

Second stop is at the fabulous Grimselpass. Discover this lost area with it’s glacial lakes, amazing rock formation and curvy mountain roads. If you are lucky you will even get a glimpse of a marmot. Grimselpass is home for mountain crystals and if you like step in the crystal museum (optional).

On the otherside of the Pass pure Adrenaline awaits you. Enjoy lunch or a picknick at the charming Restaurant Handeck. From there it is only a short walk over the rope bridge to the Gelmerbahn. The Gelmer funicular with its 106 % gradient is the steepest funicular in Europe. This is breathtaking and pure adrenaline. The ride takes you up to the picturesque Gelmer lake.

In the afternoon we stop at Meiringen, where you’ll visit the fantastic Aare George. Walk through the impressive gorge and feel the power of water and how this gorge was created a few thousand years ago. The tour ends with a unique stop to take photos on the way back home to Interlaken.

Sibi Sibi Sibi…The best tour guide in Switzerland!

Hi! We spent 7 fabulous days with Sibi. She’s super easy-going and just wants to please AND give suggestions along the way. I liked when she’d occasionally drop us off at a site and say, “OK, I’ll meet you later in 1 or 2 hours. We were free to wander 🙂 Then she’d pick us up and we’d go to another wonderful place… maybe she’d stay with us this time to give us the insights of the area. She drove us all over Switzerland, from Zurich to Interlaken, to Geneva and even across the Italian Alps to Milan! We always felt safe and in capable hands. We took the train up to Jungfrau and spent the day at the top of the mountain… don’t miss this! She took us to a young couple’s home where the cow bells were ringing in the hills and they made cheese in their barn. Sibi always does her homework and has everything you want to do planned out so things run smoothly. If you don’t know what you want to do, she’s spontaneous and makes great suggestions. Sibi is funny and will share her insights into the Swiss history and culture. I hightly recommend Sibi and Pure Switzerland. We’ll be going back to do the things we didn’t get a chance to do, with Sibi as our guide, of course!
