Hi pujad, welcome to MySwissAlps!

You should be able to do most on your list if you don't mind a few full days. The Glacier Express can't be done as a day trip from Zermatt. I would suggest to stay in Lucerne first, then Interlaken, then Zermatt for 2 nights, transfer to St. Moritz through the Glacier Express and stay for 1 night. This order assumes you'll start and end in Zurich.

If this is too much you can consider skipping the Glacier Express, or stay in just Interlaken or Lucerne instead of both and adjust your day trips based on that.

The Grindelwald glacier gorge may not be open yet. I think it opens around mid May, so you might be lucky.

Hi pujad,

You can do part of the Glacier Express. It will always require a long day though. Please find the options under "Don't have time to do the full route" on myswissalps.com/ glacierexpress.
