Create an itinerary including Lake Lucerne
See the Alps by taking a guided boat tour on , located in the heart of Switzerland. The lake covers a total area of over 114 sq km (44 sq mi), much of its shoreline rising steeply into the surrounding mountains. Most of the visitors choose to experience this picturesque region by taking a trip on one of the paddle steamers linking the tucked-away resorts spread along the lake's shores. You can also circumnavigate the lake by road, which follows a scenic route and passes through several tunnels. However you choose to travel, be sure to visit the mountain meadow on the far southeastern shore of the lake, the birthplace of the Swiss nation.

  • We took the boat from Luzern to Vitznau and after an excursion to Mt Rigi we took another ride from Vitznau to Fluelen. The boats were comfortable and the views were amazing Do not miss a boat ride...

  • Second time on the lake, first time to Alpnachstad, this time to Vitznau. Very calming and enjoyable experience setting out from Interlaken pier. Snacks available on board.
