A boat trip on the lake Lucerne with ascent of Mt Rigi.


For more than 150 years, that tour was one of the "Best Things To Do" in Switzerland.
Seeing the sunrise from the summit is a popular activity with a very long precedent.
Old fashioned historical paddle steamers operate only in summer, although any of the boats provide a fun. The hour will pass unnoticed while we admire the beautiful scenery. Taking advantage of one of the most famous cogged railways in the country, we will reach a mountain station in just 30 minutes. From the top of the mountain (1797 m. ) there is a great view of mountain peaks to the south and east. On a clear day Mt. Titlis and the Jungfrau Region are visible. With a real bird's-eye view to the North and West, we can see the Lake Zug and an arm of Lake Lucerne. The green or white slopes, the swathes of conifers and, during the summer, special "Alp Flowers Trail" and the constantly tinkling cowbells all add to the scene.
