Overview

From Zürich, the coach takes you on a scenic journey through beautiful countryside and along the Lake of the Four Cantons to the charming town of Lucerne

Take in the views during a short photo stop en route and enjoy a brief orientation drive, where your guide points out the main attractions of this charming town like the Chapel Bridge, the Town Hall, the Jesuit Church and the Culture and Congress Centre.

Continue to Kriens from where you take the panoramic gondolas to Fräkmüntegg.

Continue the ascent by the spectacular aerial cableway "Dragon Ride" and enjoy the jaw-dropping views out of the panoramic windows, specially designed to give the feeling of flying.

At the peak of Mount Pilatus (2132m) a mystical, white winter paradise awaits you. According to the legend, kind dragons and numerous ghosts used to inhabit this mountain. Warm up in the cosy Swiss Mountain Restaurant and enjoy a typical lunch.

If snow conditions allow it, venture down the Dragon's Path or go for a short hike to the summit.

Later you can relax inside the Panorama Gallery admiring magnificent views over the surrounding mountains of the Swiss Alps and the blue lakes in the valleys below.

Descend again by aerial cable car and take the public bus back to Lucerne.
