Excursions

- Cruise on Lake Lucerne. The whole trip takes just under 3 hours so this will be broken into two sections on different days. Beautiful scenery with stops at several attractive lakeside villages.
- Train journey to the resort of Engelberg at the base of Mount Titlis. We climb the mountain firstly by gondola and then by a rotating cable car to reach the summit at 10,500ft where there is snow lying all year round.
- Boat to Vitznau to connect onto the world's oldest rack railway to climb to the summit station on Mount Rigi. We descend by another rack railway on the other side of the mountain to Arth-Goldau and then back by train via Lucerne to Hergiswil.
- Train from Lucerne to Goeschenen via the scenic northern section of the original Gotthard railway. Change onto a rack railway to ascend the Schollenen Gorge to the small town of Andermatt. There will be free time here and also the opportunity to travel on part of the Glacier Express route up to the Oberalp Pass.
-A local tour to the Stanserhorn. The town of Stans is just a few minutes from Hergiswil and from here we travel by a historic funicular and then a new 'Cabrio' cable car to the top of the mountain. We then visit the resort of Burgenstock and the Hammetschwand Lift
- By train over the Brunig Pass to the lakeside town of Brienz. From here we ascend by rack railway to the Brienzer Rothorn from where there are great views to the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains.
