VISIT THE JUNGFRAU (SWITZERLAND)

Nuria Valley and Jungfrau in Switzerland are twinned since 2011 in which an agreement of brotherhood and cooperation between the two establishments was signed. Today’s post is the visit to personally did a few weeks ago, this spectacular place, so that you can describe the feelings at this wonder of nature more than 3,000 meters.

20150626_113522_resized

As important fact we must say that climbs to the highest railway station in Europe at 3,454 m. This journey is beginning to Interlaken, the nearest town with a distance of more than two hours to the Jungfrau, but we prefer to spend the night with the caravan on a camping in Grindelwald, the village is down, and go up from there. The day before we visited the Harder Kulm in Interlaken a beautiful place with great views of the two lakes where the city is embedded fantastic. We came up with a cable car up to 1,322 m. Contact the company of “our brothers” Jungfrauban Daniela who treated us wonderfully (again thank you Daniela …)

20150626_093034_resized

The ride to the Jungfrau from Grindelwald is spectacular, it must be said that the weather accompanied us (like every day …) and it was a splendid sun. First we got into a green and yellow train to Kleine Scheidegg slice up. During the trip impresses the intense green fields of Switzerland, and the fairytale landscape that appears before your eyes, … all items (mountain, house, cow, tree …) are distributed harmoniously, making the visual spectacle is of ecstasy. Although we got up early following the advice of Daniela, already the train goes quite full, and pay our attention to the large number of tourists Oriental groups are overwhelmingly against the Europeans. A station Kleine Scheidegg where we change trains and take the red train, it is a bit chaotic for many people and groups who at the time was preparing to occupy the units arranged in swaths, but we went to one of workers and then tells us that we train to climb. We check that it is an older unit, and suppose that due to the large number of people have had to take all the available material.

20150626_100301_resized_1

We started the final climb to the Jungfrau and when we entered the first tunnel the train stops and starts to back up a small station that had just passed. Then the reviewer informs us in German and in perfect English that the train would be stopped for a while because they had had a breakdown a few meters above and could not move until it is repaired. The truth is that we were informed promptly and let us leave the train during almost an hour we waited. We must also say who gave us a card to invite us to take a drink each passenger once we got to the Jungfrau. Therefore a great deal … We continue climbing up, up … making two stops to look through the galleries, the spectacular glacier through the large windows placed strategically.

20150626_124552_resized

Once leeway to go up each and every one of the services they offer. The first seal our passport as official visitors to the Jungfrau, then we visited the stores, including chocolate, “Lindt” where you get a free chocolate and if you like chocolate so worth it, the Palace of spectacular ice with those figures as well made, exit the “Plateau” for taking photos outside with views of the glacier, and where just before leaving discovered a photograph of Vall de Nuria symptom of brotherhood with the Jungfrau. Finally the “fun-zone” of snow where our daughters and ourselves open eyes as an “orange” to see people skiing, sleds, toboggans, and a “wild” zip line running from end to end in the area. We were almost to the beach and opened to us the possibility of being able to ski !! … just magical …

jungfrau

After lunch already we take only the latest family photos on the terrace from the highest point, and quickly take the train down neatly in the tail of shipment. Once on the train, already tired from the excitement of the day, with small sleepy again and enjoying the green, green … a different green landscape of the Swiss Alps.

We say goodbye with the hope of returning to visit our “big brother” another day. Furthermore you have to know that from Nuria you can provide a better-off 50% of the Jungfrau rack for up to 4 people. So you can apply at the Information Office of Vall de Nuria will gladly facilitate it.

We leave you some direction of interest if you want to find more information and we challenge you to upcoming stories Vall de Nuria:

ROUTE “BAIXADOR” OF FONTALBA

No doubt … and if there was, they vanished on Saturday, with the first customers enjoyed the tour “Route Baixador of Fontalba.” We knew that is ideal for people who want to enter the world of trekking product, when last season with the recommendations of our guides we create this product once we check in first person how is spectacular and different to other routes.

The impressive waterfall Fontalba, explanations of flora, fauna and geological aspects of our guides make the journey becomes very pleasant and relaxed. If all this we add the breakfast to be enjoyed in one of the most spectacular locations, it is all said … Well, we lacked the acid test with our first customers: Noemi Casas and Aidan O’Shaughnessy who enjoyed this route . Once they arrived at Vall de Nuria had occasion to have an exchange of views with them, and found that all had gone well, from the moment the train makes an exclusive stop for them in Fontalba, until arrival at Vall de Nuria by midday … we even explain that they saw a herd of chamois.

140716VdN204_b

We leave a gift in the form of words that Noemi sent the next day of the tour:

“It was the first time we made a trip of this kind and we were not disappointed! The views, spectacular breakfast and very good livestock after the climb and especially the guides a 10! You could tell they knew the area very well and took a good rhythm to our level of beginners in hiking. Totally recommended! “.

TOURIST BUS (from Barcelona to Vall de Nuria)

Created with Nokia Smart Cam

Barcelona. Catalunya Square

IMG-20150530-WA0008

Ribes de Freser. Enllaç Station

 

The Barcelona Tourist Bus arrives at Nuria Valley … well come to Ribes de Freser where we take the rack railway (the highest rack railway in southern Europe) that I will go to the Valley of Núria, because we know that Nuria vehicles can’t reach … of course … a full day in the Valley of Núria from the center of Barcelona (in Catalunya square) with the Tourist Bus. A partnership agreement we have now launched a few weeks ago and is being well accepted by customers who want to experience the contrast of the landscape of our country, and have the “sea level” at an altitude of 2,000 meters in a day, with the comfort of a bus service exclusively for this activity.

We think it is a day where all activities are included are a very imporP1030429_btant attractive individually, so from the time that everything is included in a set, the end result has to be for very satisfactory strength to customers, as it may be otherwise, … whenever we talk:

  • A rack railway ride through the cliffs of the river Nuria
  • A guided tour in the Valley
  • A very suggestive tasting products of Vall de Ribes

From here, free time to enjoy the natural environment of Núria, or who decides to practice some of the activities offered in summer, until the rack railway leave you again in Ribes de Freser with Bus tourist that will take you back to Barcelona.

P1000004_b

An ideal way for people wanting to learn more from other areas of Catalonia and will not be enough to stay only with all the cultural and cosmopolitan stream emanating from a big city like Barcelona.

We leave a link in the web of “Catalunya Bus Turístic” where you will find all the necessary information, and where you can directly booking.
