Description

Start the tour with a scenic drive through stunning landscapes to Bern, the Swiss capital aboard a minibus. Discover the rural highlights of Entlebuch valley - Switzerland's first UNESCO Biosphere. The unspoilt moorlands and Alpine pastures are home to many farmers. Crossing the border to the idyllic Emmental valley, arrive to Trubschachen.

Then continue on to have a Kambly Experience. Discover the origins of Switzerland's famous premium biscuit brand. Learn the art of fine biscuit making and watch the master confectioners at work. Indulge in unique flavors and try as many biscuits of the tantalizing variety you like! After this sweet indulgence continue through the Bernese back country towards the Swiss capital Bern.

Then it's time to burn some calories on an informative walk through the charming Old Town, a designated UNESCO world cultural heritage site. Marvel at the late Gothic Cathedral (Münster), stroll under the arcades to the clock tower, Zytglogge, and pay a visit to the Parliament building overlooking the beautiful River Aare. Enjoy free time for lunch and some souvenir shopping.

In the afternoon, continue through fascinating rural landscape with its rich heritage. The impressively vast roofs shelter prosperous Emmental farmhouses and the red of the geraniums in their windows is probably more intense than anywhere else in the world! See grazing cows on green hills producing the best milk, the principal ingredient for the world famous Emmental Cheese. And this leads to our next stop, the show dairy.

Right on time for the highlight of the day, right when the fresh cheese is taken out of the pot by hand. Watch through the big windows directly into the production hall and learn about the traditional production of an Emmentaler AOP - the biggest cheese in the world! Before leaving this charming place you will be invited to a cheese tasting. Then head back to Zurich after this eventful tour.
