Explore Switzerland from 3 breathtaking perspectives. First ascend the formidable Mount Pilatus, then glide over scenic Lake Lucerne on a boat, and finally enjoy free time in the charming city of Lucerne. The world's steepest cogwheel railway transports you down Mount Pilatus - a nail-biting ride.

After a stunning drive from Zurich to the foothills of the Alps in the town of Kriens, board a gondola and then an aerial cable car for a truly unforgettable journey to the summit of Mount Pilatus. From here, inhale the fresh mountain air from 7,000 feet (2,100 m) and gaze out over the incredible 360-degree panorama of the Alps.

Up here, you may choose to head to a sunny terrace for a refreshing drink at one of several restaurants before experiencing the descent on the steepest cogwheel railway in the world. Board a boat at Alpnachstad and venture across the picturesque lake to Lucerne, where you have time to explore the historic picture-perfect city centre at your leisure.
