Did you take a look at the list of activities for the Jungfrau region in my previous post? It's actually an overview of our personal recommendations :-). If scenery and mountains are most important to you, I'd certainly visit one or two mountain tops, like Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn (or Schynige Platte, which is a scenic and nostalgic ride, and entirely for free with your Swiss Travel Pass: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity). The Lauterbrunnen valley is stunning as well.
You'll receive print at home passes from www.raileurope-gcc.com, no paper passes. I just tried for Dubai and actually the only option I got was a print at home pass, so I'm not sure why you're seeing paper pass options only. Further validation is not required, so you can start using your passes right after arrival in Switzerland. I'd suggest you order today, because print at home pass orders too make take a couple of days to process. Although you could also buy your pass in Switzerland, that's less convenient as there may be waiting lines at the rail station. The RailEurope promotion I referred to won't be available there either.
