Mount Rigi Guided Hike from Lucerne

3. Mount Rigi Guided Hike from Lucerne

Start the day off with a train ride from the Lucerne train station to Goldau, where you will transfer to the Mt. Rigi cogwheel 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."

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. Take the cogwheel train up to the top of Mount 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 6:47 PM.

What people are saying about Mount Rigi

Excellent option. I bought the three-day pass and it's wonderful because you forget to buy tickets every time you go to use a transport. Works Perfect on all transport services within Switzerland including most cable cars. It is very worthwhile if you plan to know places around where you stay. But beware, if you are going to be alone in a city, it is not worth it because the hotels give you the benefit of having free public transport close to the area. So if you just want to get to know the city and you don't plan to go to the mountains or other towns, it may not be as useful to you.

One of the best deals in Swiss if you travel a lot by train. No need to buy train tickets and just hop on whenever you want to. Free admission to boat tour, bus, and museums as well. Discount to Tiltlis and Jungfrau… we used it everyday during our trip and saved a lot time and money!

Very comfortable, when sending the voucher everything was sensational, no further paperwork was necessary and also with the possibility of canceling in advance and flexibility. Without a doubt the best place to buy it

First time user and quite impressed with the ease of use and quantity/quality of information. Will use again on next trip

It enables you to have a flexible schedule and you can go to any city at will without worrying about the transportation.
