Full description

Discover authentic Switzerland on a guided trip that visits the hidden gems around Lake Lucerne. Get a crash course on the world of the alphorn, enjoy an alphorn concert, try traditional Swiss raclette, enjoy panoramic mountain views, and stop at a premium chocolate factory.

Begin your day by getting picked up from your accommodation by your private guide. Head in the direction of Lake Lucerne where you will visit a hidden gem with a scenic view over the lake.

Upon arrival, learn how this relaxing place is also the region where Switzerland was founded. Hear about Swiss traditions from your guide.

Then, learn how to play the alphorn through a crash course led by a professional local Swiss alphorn player. Record a souvenir video of you playing this unique instrument for your family and friends at home.

At the conclusion of your lesson, enjoy the surrounding views accompanied by an alphorn concert.

Later, continue onward to another hidden gem where, depending on the season, you can enjoy a Swiss outdoor raclette, an unforgettable authentic Swiss experience. When it is warmer in the summer, a traditional Swiss picnic is offered instead.

At the end of your tour, make a stop at a premium Swiss chocolate factory, Läderach, where you can optionally buy Swiss chocolate at a discounted price.
