After an 8:30am start, you’ll leave your Zurich hotel with your guide and travel to the train station. Hop aboard an intercity train for your hour-long journey to Lucerne, where a landscape of lake and mountains await.

The romantic Swiss town is best seen from the water, so relax on a Lake Lucerne cruise, and gaze at the pretty architecture against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks.

Step out onto dry land at Alpnachstad, then make your way to the Pilatus train station in time for a coffee (own expense). Feeling re-energised, you’ll board the Pilatus railway — a line believed to the world’s steepest cogwheel mountain railway. Lasting just over half an hour, the journey shuttles you to the summit of Mt. Pilatus with glorious mountain vistas along the way.

At the top, you’ll have some time to walk through the rocks to check out little-known military landmarks at the peak. Have your camera or phone on hand to capture sights from the summit’s panoramic viewing platform, then take a break for lunch at your own expense.

Descend the mountain to the town of Fräkmüntegg, then relax on a gondola for another scenic ride through the mountain valley to Kriens. Here, it’s a short walk to the bus terminal for your ride back to Lucerne. After a final train journey, you’ll arrive back in Zurich in the evening.
