A Switzerland family vacation for the whole family, filled with outdoor adventure in the Alps.

World Travel. Family Discovery.

Higher, faster, farther, the Alpine way… Glistening glaciers... snowy peaks... idyllic meadows... summer fun! Few places on Earth offer as much breathtaking beauty, outdoor adventure and colorful culture as the Alps... and there’s no end to the possibilities when you experience them with your family.

During your eight-day adventure, family fun awaits you at every stop… from Lake Lucerne and Mount Pilatus in Switzerland... across the mountains aboard the Glacier Express to famous St. Moritz... into the Austrian Alps and Innsbruck... and on to the Bavarian magic of Munich! Go whitewater rafting, mountain bicycling, rock and rope climbing... enjoy a look at Neolithic life and traditional Tyrolean fun and games... ride cable cars and the world's steepest cog railway at Mount Pilatus, more than 125 years in operation (summer only)... watch an exciting ski-jump demonstration and more!

Ropes on the slopes of Mt. Pilatus

Day 2

Climbing into the sky

Nothing says “Alpine Adventure” like a visit to the Swiss hillside resort of Fraekmuentegg on the northern slopes of Mount Pilatus. There, you’ll find a boatload summer fun on the mountain, with a choice of tackling the ladders, platforms, cables and log bridges of Central Switzerland’s biggest suspension rope park, the Seilpark Pilatus… barreling down the tracks of the Fraekigaudi Rodelbahn, the country’s longest summer toboggan run… or riding an inner tube down a mountain slide…

Adventure in the Engadin Valley

Day 4

A day of family fun

Dive into an enchanting day of outdoor fun in Switzerland’s breathtaking Engadin Valley… where you’ll hike to the foot of a glacier (and take a step or two on its surface)… go rock climbing and abseiling… set off on a mountain bike excursion… learn the ins and outs of cheesemaking… and become an Alpine athlete for a day by trying your hand at traditional sports like ski racing and the crossbow…

AQUA DOME

Days 5 and 6

AQUA DOME

Prepare to be pampered with superior comfort… innovative modern architecture and stylish design… culinary excellence… a wide variety of spa and sauna treatments and sports activities… and, of course, warm Tyrolean hospitality at AQUA DOME – TIROL THERME LÄNGENFELD, a unique Alpine retreat nestled in the stunning Ötztal Valley.

There were kids my age... the activities were really cool... a lot of places had a lot of meaning / history...

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
