Full description

Travel from Zürich to Mount Pilatus on a circuit that includes a lake cruise, cogwheel train, and an aerial cableway. Let your guide show you the stunning landscape and answer your questions about the country and its people.

Head to the massive multi-peaked Mount Pilatus which looms over Lucerne. Take a lake boat from Luzern across to Alpnachstad. Next, hop aboard the Pilatus Railway, the world's steepest cogwheel railway which is in operation from May to November.

Go back down on the aerial cableways from Kriens which operate all year round. Snap pictures of the panoramic views from the cableways. Return to Luzern by bus.
