If you've always wanted to follow in Tolkien's footsteps through the Alps...you're in luck. We traveled in very comfortable conditions. I think anyone in reasonably fit condition would be capable of keeping up. - K.T. - Winconsin
Much of JRR Tolkien's fascinating world was conceived in Switzerland. It's based on a formative trip the author made in 1911 at the age of 19. You can still find this world today in the Swiss Alps if you know where to look.
Following Tolkien's route, we embark on a journey where you'll explore Interlaken, the Jungfrau, the Eiger, Grimsel Pass, and the upper Rhone, before concluding in Zermatt at the base of the Matterhorn. We are guests at a new Tolkien museum and explore Tolkien's legendary landscapes on scenic trains such as the Glacier Express and the GoldenPass Line.
The magnificent snowcapped peaks of the Alps, the surging waterfalls and powerful glaciers are as likely to fire your imagination as they did Tolkien's.
