Full description
See what the Swiss countryside has to offer on a full-day tour exploring the areas surrounding Lucerne. Enjoy the perfect amount of exercise and relaxation on a bike ride followed by a boat cruise. Your tour begins at 8:15 AM under the arch in front of Lucerne train station. From there, depart on a 24-mile (40-kilometer) bike ride to Brunnen using a Swiss Flyer electric bike. The bike will boost your pedaling leaving you more energy to enjoy the scenery. After a 3-hour ride that passes by the beautiful lakes of Zug, Lauerz, and Lucerne, stop at Hohle Gasse and learn about Swiss legend William Tell and his fascinating story. You can also take advantage of the many photo opportunities at these scenic spots, including villages, farmhouses, pastures, and local people. Once arriving in Brunnen, use some free time to sightsee or stop off for lunch, before heading to the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Visitor Center. Here you have the option to make and engrave your own Swiss Army knife under the watchful eye of a cutler. Next, board a lake steamer for a relaxing 2-hour boat ride across Lake Lucerne. This provides some time to relax, and you may choose from an excellent selection of food and drinks. At 17:00 you will arrive back at your starting point, with plenty of time to enjoy an evening in Lucerne.
