We will start with a short bus journey to Kriens, from where we take the panoramic gondolas and aerial cable car to the summit of Mount Pilatus (7000ft/ 2132m). Here, you can take in the unforgettable view over the surrounding mountains and lakes. We will descend on the world's steepest cogwheel railway (48% gradient) to Alpnachstad, followed by a lovely boat ride.

As an option, you can enjoy great fun on the longest summer toboggan run in Switzerland, which is at 4500 ft (1.4 km).
