Hello everyone, this is my first and I am sure not last post. we are visiting in early May and have probably 5 nights in Switzerland I think basing in Lauterbrunnen. We will have a car and coming in from Innsbruck and leaving to Nice probably via Albertville. We would like to see Zermatt and the Aletsch Glacier and trying to figure out the best way to plan that. The options that I can see are
1. Drive from Lauterbrunnen to maybe Visp (stay 1 night) go down to Zermatt and then see glacier(Eggishorn), what would be the best way to drive from a cost and time point of view around the east or on the car train?
2.Leave the car in Lauterbrunnen ( can I do that if so where and how much would that cost) and catch the train to Zermatt and use trains and cable cars to get around then back to Lauterbrunnen. Are these trains and cable cars included in any of the passes?
3. I have seen there is a company (Scenic air) that looks like it flys over the glacier and the lands on another so you can walk on it, would this eliminate the need to go to Aletsch, does anyone have experience with this?
Is early May going to be a limiting factor with any of this?
