What You'll Do
  • Use the Swiss public transportation system including train, cogwheel train, aerial trams and cruise on a lake ship.
  • Hike on an easy, marked trail along the beautiful Mt. Rigi and enjoy the views
  • Stop for a lunch break at a scenic Alpine restaurant
  • Enjoy 2 hours of relaxation in the healing mineral waters of the mineral spa
  • Marvel at the panoramic views of as many as 620 Alpine peaks from Mt. Rigi
Ascend Mt. Rigi on a leisurely hike to start this full-day tour. Stop for a grilled lunch. Enjoy stunning panoramic views of the 620 Alpine peaks, or spend the afternoon relaxing at a luxury spa, and then end the day with a cruise across Lake Lucerne.
What to Expect
Start the day off with a train ride from the Lucerne train station to Goldau, where you will transfer to the Mt. Rigi cog wheel train, and then to the aerial tram, to reach the starting point of your hike at the 1,661-meter high Rigi Scheidegg. The panoramic views and the symphony of cow bells in the summer months provide the perfect ambiance, and served as the inspiration from Mark Twain's 1880 book, “A Tramp Abroad."

Mid way through the hike, stop for lunch at a typical Alpine restaurant, or bring your own to enjoy at a nearby meadow. After lunch, continue hiking through undulating meadows to reach the modern facilities of the newly opened Mineralbad & Spa at Rigi Kaltbad, designed by internationally renowned architect, Mario Botta.

At this point, you can choose which of the two afternoon options you would like to partake in. Spend the afternoon at the exclusive spa, relaxing in the shallow crystal pool and enjoying the herbal steam baths and saunas. Or take the cogwheel train up to the top of Mt. Rigi to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views over the lakes and mountains, and then descend by foot back to the Rigi Kaltbad.

End the tour with a scenic 40-minute boat cruise across Lake Lucerne, returning to the Lucerne train station by 18:47.
