Interlaken is an attractive resort for ski enthusiasts, and its excellent location in the heart of German-speaking Switzerland means it's easily accessible from several international airports, including Zurich Airport.
Whether you are travelling to the resort at the peak of the ski season or the tail end, a transfer from Zurich Airport to Interlaken isn't a problem with Alps2Alps.
But, before you travel, let's tell you everything you need to know about your Alps ski transfer, from plane to piste.
Interlaken translates to 'between the lakes', referring to Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, so wouldn't it be a shame if you didn't get to enjoy their beauty?
The standard route that our transfers will aim to take is a scenic drive for sure. The route passes from Zurich Airport on the south and then alongside lake Brienzersee heading to Interlaken.
Our alternative route is another comfortable and stunning course. It goes from Zurich to the southwest through Bern, and then alongside Lake Thun to Interlaken.
The chosen route will mostly depend on weather conditions, the snow forecast and the current road conditions.
Zurich Airport ZRH is approximately 133 km from the centre of Interlaken. The average transfer time from the airport to the resort is 1 hour and 45 minutes. But remember, factors such as poor weather conditions and traffic can affect the journey time significantly.
Located 13km north of Zurich city centre, Zurich Airport is one of the busiest airports in Central Europe. During the high season, Zurich Airport accepts crowds of ski travellers. Of course, you would not like to waste your time here, right? That's why we advise you to make your transfer booking in advance.

While some additional waiting might occur in the high season, your dedicated driver will do everything possible to ensure you have a happy and comfortable journey. But, there are some insider tricks we can let you in on that might speed up your trip for all those eager skiers! If you travel midweek, the chances of unnecessary waits and traffic jams are much slimmer, AND it guarantees more time on the slopes.
Switzerland's Interlaken ski resort is nestled between two lakes, Thun and Brienz, hence the name of the city.
The breathtaking Swiss resort is a seamless blend of lake and mountain, offering magical views and mountain adventures at the foot of your door, at an impressive altitude of 567m above sea level.
Interlaken gained its status as an 'official' ski resort not so long ago with the opening of the Jungfrau skiing region.
The Jungfrau zone sits above Grindelwald and provides more than 100 miles of ski trails, with some of the Alps' most notorious ski slopes situated here.
All of Jungfrau's ski trails are interlinked by a mountain railway and access to use this railway will be included in your ski pass. This means that you will be able to soak up a different ski area every day for a week if you wish!
What awaits you in the Interlaken mountains? Enjoy over 63.4 miles of ski slopes, over 20 miles of 'easy' slopes, 34 of 'moderate' and 8 of 'advanced' ski slopes, so there's something for the whole family.
There are also 34 ski lifts in total, a vibrant surrounding village, excellent aprés-ski entertainment and views that your eyes will struggle to believe.

Booking a midweek transfer to Interlaken has financial and time benefits...
If you want to save money on your ski transfer, we offer cheaper midweek transfers for bookings from Monday to Friday's, sometimes saving you up to 50% compared to weekend travellers.
Another benefit of travelling midweek is less traffic on the roads, quieter resorts, and short queues for the ski lifts, meaning more time on less congested slopes. Sounds like a win-win to us!
We offer two types of airport transfers from Zurich to Interlaken, private and shared - another influence on the cost of your journey.
Our private transfers are a hit amongst groups of up to 8 people, families with children, or smaller groups of skiers looking for an uber-comfortable ride to Interlaken. With our private service, there is no waiting around for other fellow skiers, your driver will simply meet you at arrivals and escort you to your vehicle. You can also arrange to make a stop en-route to stretch your legs or to visit a supermarket to stock up on your weekly essentials.
If you're looking to cut a few costs on your transfer to the slopes, our shared service is the cheapest, but don't worry it's still a comfy drive! All it means is that you will be sharing a car with another party heading in the same direction. You might have to wait up to two hours depending on the shared service you have chosen, but we are tactical with our shared scheduling to ensure wait times are minimal, plus, it's a great way to meet some new ski enthusiasts.
Our drivers are fully aware that a 1-hour 45-minute car journey can feel like a particularly long time for some people, especially after a flight! So don't worry, we're super lenient if you want to stop to stretch your legs, take a bathroom break, or even stop and take some beautiful photos of the stunning panoramics that you will pass through.
There are also plenty of supermarkets en-route to Interlaken, and we're more than happy to let you stop and grab some skiing essentials or some snacks for the journey, don't be shy to ask. Besides, many of the holiday essentials that you can buy on the way to Interlaken are much cheaper than in the resort.
