What to Expect

Once a legendary mountain associated with dragons, dramatic Mount Pilatus is today a popular excursion point, viewing platform and place of adventure at the doorstep of Lucerne. On a clear day the mountain offers a panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks. We will ascent by the spectacular aerial cableway “Dragon Ride” at 2132 meter above sea level and enjoy the jaw dropping views out of the panoramic windows, especially designed to give the feeling of flying.  Soak up the sun on Pilatus Kulm while enjoying an unforgettable view over one of the most spectacular part of the Swiss peaks at Mt Pilatus. If snow conditions allow it, discover the Dragon’s Path or go for a short hike to the summit and make the most out of the stunning scenery. Descend again by aerial cable car and take the public bus back to Lucerne where we will take in its picturesque lake set against an impressive mountain backdrop and among architectural gems and centuries-old sights such as the most-photographed subject in Switzerland, the Chapel Bridge. Explore the charm of Lucerne’s old bridges, tower, streets & castles. We offer you a life-enriching Photography day tour where a mystical, white winter paradise awaits you.
