Lake Lucerne and the Glacier Express

14 May & 1 September 2023

6 days from £1,995pp

Come with us to Lucerne, one of the prettiest cities in Switzerland, and journey through the Rhine Gorge, Stanserhorn Mountain and Mount Pilatus by funicular rail, cogwheel rail and cable car.
  • Look out on the Rhine Gorge from the Glacier Express
  • Ride on the historic Stanserhorn Funicular Railway
  • Enjoy a first-class cruise on Lake Lucerne with lunch and drink included
  • Climb Mount Pilatus on the world’s steepest cogwheel railway
On this tour of magnificent mountains and grand gorges, you’ll get lost in the dramatic Swiss landscapes as we cruise Lake Lucerne and travel across the Alps. Enjoy a ride on the world’s slowest express train – the Glacier Express. The historic carriages of the Stanserhorn railway date back to 1893, and they will take you halfway up the mountain before transferring to CabriO, the world’s first open-top arial cable car. The railway climbing Mount Pilatus – which sometimes reaches an angle of 48 percent – grants wonderful views across the picturesque mountains. Alongside these excursions, we give you plenty of time at leisure to explore Lucerne, with an included Swiss pass offering travel and museum admission discounts. Alternatively, you may opt to unwind at our comfortable accommodation, the Hotel Waldstätterhof, nestled in the city’s heart.
