Golden round trip

One of the most popular tour in Lucerne is the golden round trip to mount Pilatus, from where you enjoy splendid view over the alps, lakes and the city of Lucerne. This tour includes all the highlights of central Switzerland: a boat trip on lake Lucerne, a ride with the world's steepest cogwheel train, and the new cable car "Dragon Ride". Adrenalin junkies might enjoy a run on Switzerland's longest summer topoggan run or the largest suspension rope park. For the more culture and glas art interested  a visit to the old glas factory, where you can blow your own glas bowl is a great stop. On top of the mountain several short hikes lead to fantastic view points. With some luck, we might even spot wild mountain goats.

A Recent Review of this tour

We are a family of 6, & we all rate our tour with Nicole a Perfect 10! Because of her, we were able to maximize our time, & even with the fog, she managed to guide us to some amazing breathtaking views! I am fearful of heights & would not have hiked so high up to the peak without Nicole by my side. We all just loved the whole experience! Did so much that day, ate good food too. Highly recommend her. She is patient, fun and knowledgeable. Happy that we also booked a bike tour the following day with her. Anna Marie Amor
