Pilatus Half-day Golden Round Trip From Lucerne

Hop aboard the aerial cableway "Dragon Ride" and admire the magnificent views of the Swiss Alps!

Mount Pilatus – the Golden Round Trip has it all! Enjoy on this afternoon excursion the ascent by different aerial cable cars to beautiful Mt Pilatus with possibilities of easy hikes and gorgeous photo opportunities. Descent by the world's steepest cogwheel railway and end the tour with a relaxing boat ride on Lake Lucerne.

Your exciting half-day adventure starts with a short coach ride to Kriens, where you take the panoramic gondolas to Fräkmüntegg. Then hop aboard the aerial cableway "Dragon Ride" and enjoy the jaw dropping views out of the panoramic windows, especially designed to give the feeling of flying.

Once at the top of Mt Pilatus (2,132 m), venture down the Dragon's Path or go for a short hike to the summit. Later you can relax on the panorama terrace admiring magnificent views over the surrounding mountains of the Swiss Alps and the blue lakes in the valleys below.

The highlight of this day is the thrilling descent on the world's steepest cogwheel railway (48% gradient) down to Alpnachstad. Here you board the boat for a lovely 1-hour cruise (only in the summer) on the beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons and enjoy the spectacular landscape from an entirely different angle. The excursion ends at the pier in Lucerne.
