Hike to the hidden gems around Lucerne

This round trip with train - cable car - hike and a relaxing boat ride back to Lucerne is one of the most amazing trips in the Lucerne area. It offers spectacular cable car rides, a 1. 5 - 2 hour hike in the Swiss alps away from mass tourism, cows and great scenery!
On this tour we will also visit a alpine village and a mountain dairy farm, where you can taste and buy the local cheese. For lunch we can stop at a mountain restaurant or enjoy a Swiss picnic. At the end of this wonderful tour, we'll enjoy a relaxing boat ride back to Lucerne.
