Hiking: Round tour Lake Lucerne

Panoramic trails in the heart of Switzerland

A hiking adventure in the heart of Switzerland. The high altitude hikes around Lake Lucerne are pearls worth discovering. First you pass over Renggpass to reach the lakes and peaks of central Switzerland. From here you continue to Nidwalden and enjoy marvellous views on Lake of Uri and Mount Rigi. After crossing the lake basin you will climb the “queen of the Mountains” and dream of the spectacular mountain panoramas you’ve enjoyed during the last days.

Hohe Zuverlässigkeit
Die Tourenwahl war grundsätzlich in jeder Beziehung sehr abwechslungsreich und landschaftlich sehr interessant und zeitweilig anstrengend. Die Kombinationsmöglichkeiten mit Bahnen und Schiff haben wir sehr geschätzt. Das Karten- und Infomaterial war sehr ausführlich. Überall haben die Unterkünfte unseren Erwartungen entsprochen. Wir wurden jeweils freundlich empfangen und in jeder Beziehung wurden wir bestens betreut. Auf jeden Fall eine gelungene Uebernachtungsauswahl!

Excellent organisation
Excellent organisation - No problems with luggage transfer Choice of hotels can be improved as we like some comfort (especially in Luzern). We stayed an extra night in Luzern and booked the hotel by ourselve, unfortunately our choice of hotel was not good. The reservation we made in Hotel Weisser Kreus was a mistake. This so-called boutique hotel was not good (small rooms, poor breakfast and especially no airco with temp 40°C!) Rigi Kaltbad Hotel with wellness was very good & relaxing
