Climb aboard a comfortable, climate-controlled coach at a central Zurich pickup point and relax during the scenic journey to Weggis, a charming resort at the foot of Mount Rigi. Climb onto an aerial cable car and soar up a super-sleek cable to the mountain’s lofty summit.
Gasp as you rest your eyes on striking, snow-smothered panoramas of the Swiss Alps. Scour the scenery for thirteen lakes and inhale fresh mountain air during your leisurely free time at the highest point of Mount Rigi. Descend the steep mountainside by Europe’s first cogwheel train, and then climb aboard an awaiting boat for a tranquil ride to Lucerne.
On arrival, set out to see the city’s historical highlights independently, strolling through the Old Town and visiting an ambient café for coffee (own expense). Reconvene with your guide and group at a prearranged time and location, then relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.
Please see the Itinerary section for additional information regarding guided and self-guided tour elements.
This tour includes a multi-lingual guide throughout the tour except for travel up and down Mount Rigi and during the boat ride. For this part of the tour, you will receive timetables and detailed information sheets about the journey. You can choose to stay on the mountain for one or two and a half hours.
Between November 6 and 17, the aerial cable car is under maintenance. In this case you will travel up and down Mt. Rigi by cogwheel train.
