Interlaken Tours

Tucked in an alpine valley between the glistening mountain lakes of Thun and Brienz, the resort town of Interlaken is ideally situated for exploring the Swiss Alps. Surrounded by the snowy mantles of Harder Kulm, the Eiger, and the Jungfrau—arguably Europe’s most beautiful mountain—Interlaken is the gateway to Bernese Oberland, as well as a popular vacation resort in its own right.

The Basics
See the highlights of Interlaken on full-day or multi-day tour from Zurich or Lucerne, or use the mountain town as a base for exploring the surrounding Alps. Ride the cogwheel train to the Top of Europe observation deck at Jungfraujoch, go hiking along the Schynige Platte ridge, admire the glacial landscapes of Grindelwald, or take in the views from the nearby Kleine Scheidegg mountain pass, the valley of Lauterbrunnen, or the Harder Kulm viewpoint. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are available around Interlaken.
  • The mountains around Interlaken can be chilly even in the summer months, so be sure to pack warm clothes if you plan on exploring the Alps.
  • Many of the attractions around Interlaken are wheelchair accessible, but it’s best to check in advance.

How to Get There
Interlaken is located in Bernese Oberland in central Switzerland, 73 miles (117 kilometers) southwest of Zurich or an hour and a half by road. The town is linked by train to cities all around Switzerland. The closest international airport is Bern Airport, 45 minutes by road or an hour and a half by train from Interlaken. 

When to Get There
The most popular time to visit Interlaken is during the summer months of July and August. Summer visitors can hike in the Alps, take boat cruises around the lakes, and a enjoy a myriad of other activities. Visiting in the shoulder season (October, May, and June) can mean fewer crowds and cheaper prices on tours and accommodation. Ski enthusiasts should arrive between December and March to make the most of the snow. 

Outdoor Adventures in Interlaken
Hiking and skiing aren’t the only outdoor activities to enjoy in Interlaken—the alpine town is also famous as a center for extreme sports. Test your nerve canyoning, abseiling (rappelling) down a waterfall, or rock climbing; enjoy water sports like river rafting; or check skydiving, paragliding, or bungee jumping off your bucket list. For something a little less hair-raising, horseback riding, mountain biking, helicopter tours, snowshoe excursions, and cross-country skiing are also possibilities.
