On average, transfers from Zurich to Grindelwald will take a little over than 2 hours but may be impacted by weather conditions and the day/date of your trip.

We strongly recommend our clients to travel in midweek days, when you could get to the point of destination without any long waiting on road and guarantee more time on the slopes.
Standard route which we recommend passes from Zurich Airport south-west down to Bern, through Thun along the Thun Lake shore and, finally, through Interlaken directly to the resort. This way will take you 2 hours 15 minutes approximately. It’s the most reasonable and easy way as the most part of the route passes by motorway.
The alternative route goes to the north straight ahead to Interlaken. It’s a little shorter by the distance, but more complicated. And you will not win much time using this route.
But as always all travellers should choose the way according to the current situation on road and weather conditions.
Our clients don’t have to go directly to the destination point. Don’t be shy to ask your driver to make a stop when you need to for stretching your legs, for example.
There are plenty of supermarkets en-route to Grindelwald. You would like to pick up some ski holiday essentials (or a few snacks for the journey) before you get to the ski resort? That’s ok! We will easily make a stop on this stage. Besides, you may find out that some products bought on the way to Grindelwald are cheaper than at the ski resort itself.
