HIDE FULL ITINERARY

DAY 1 UK/Lucerne

​Depart on your scheduled flight to Zurich and transfer to Lucerne by train. Your hotel is conveniently located just a short stroll from the railway station. Join your Tour Manager and Local Guide on an included walking tour of Lucerne, set amongst mountains with the River Reuss flowing through it. Originally part of the town's fortifications, the eaves of the historic wooden Chapel Bridge depict the town's local legends. You'll also see the Lion Monument, which pays tribute to the Swiss mercenaries who lost their lives during the French Revolution, and head to the Glacier Garden, a museum built around a glacial pothole from the Ice Age. ​

DAY 2 Mount Rigi

​Mount Rigi is known as the 'Queen of the Mountains' and you'll discover its splendour on today's excursion. Your journey begins by boat to Vitznau, where you'll board a train and travel on Europe's oldest cogwheel railway – the Mount Rigi Railway – up the mountain. On a clear day, you'll see the snowcapped Alps, 13 lakes and across to Germany and France. Continue by cogwheel train to Kaltbad, with an onward cable car ride to tranquil Weggis. Your tour ends with a boat journey to Lucerne.​

DAY 4 Engelberg & Mount Titlis

Today's included tour begins as you board the Lucerne-Engelberg Express train. In Engelberg you'll take a revolving cable car ride above the mountain peaks to the top of Mount Titlis. Alight to discover a glacier cave with a walkway descending 20 metres below the surface. And if you've a head for heights, be sure to take the Titlis Cliff Walk – 150 steps along Europe's highest suspension bridge which is 500 metres off the ground. Before our return journey to Lucerne, perhaps visit Engelberg Abbey and cheese factory.​
