Summary of The Day: Your exciting half-day adventure starts with a short coach ride to Kriens, where you take the panoramic gondolas to Frakmuntegg. 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 (2132 m), venture down the Dragon's Path or go for 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 the day is undoubtedly the thrilling descent on the world's steepest cogwheel railway (48% gradient) down to Alpnachstad.
Here you will board the boat for a lovely 1-hour cruise* on the beautiful Lake of the Four Cantons and enjoy the spectacular landscape from an entirely different angle. Our excursion ends at the pier in Lucerne.
