Lucerne with Mount Rigi & Mount Pilatus, Interlaken & Berner Oberland, Zermatt, Lausanne & Emmental

This luxury tour includes private cultural touring, soft-adventure activities and top luxury hotels in some of Switzerland's most beautiful and iconic landscapes. Among the many wonderful Swiss experiences on the tour are hiking in the Swiss Alps, visiting charming Swiss villages, taking trains up high peaks, visiting Swiss wineries and cheese-making facilities, and options for mountain biking, via ferrata and other activities.

Begin in Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. Stay at the Burgenstock Resort, one of Switzerland's most impressive hotels, in a room offering expansive views of the lake and nearby mountains. During private touring, explore the highlights of the Old Town. Cross Chapel Bridge, a landmark covered wooden bridge containing paintings of the city history, and walk the cobblestone streets to see the city's tiny squares and painted facades. Return to your resort for an afternoon at leisure to walk local trails and perhaps take in views from the Hammetschwand Lift outdoor elevator. One day, cruise across beautiful Lake Lucerne, passing lakeside farmhouses and small villages clustered below high peaks. Ride a cog railway up iconic Mount Pilatus for panoramic views over the lake and mountains. Perhaps opt for a lunch of Swiss cuisine at a restaurant on the mountain, take a toboggan run down the slopes, or go for a hike in the fresh mountain air.

Continue to Interlaken, the gateway to the dramatic mountain landscapes of the Berner Oberland. One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion high into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains, passing through charming villages such as Lauterbrunnen, Wengen and Grindelwald en route to famed Jungfraujoch. Visit the Sphinx observatory platform, and take in spectacular views of enormous glaciers, impressive peaks above and verdant valleys far below. Perhaps also opt for hiking, tubing, sledding or other activities on the snow. Alternatively, take cable cars high up to the Schilthorn—a peak made famous in the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service—for incredible views of the Jungfrau, Eiger, Monch and other peaks.

Transfer by private vehicle to Zermatt, and stay at a luxurious hotel with views of the Matterhorn, one of the most iconic mountains in the world. During private scenic touring of the region, take a cog railway up to Gornergrat for classic views of the Matterhorn. Another day, enjoy privately guided touring and hiking in the hills around Zermatt or opt for a private via ferrata excursion through beautiful Gorner Gorge, including rappelling, climbing and zip lining. Artisans of Leisure will arrange a lunch reservation at a restaurant with breathtaking views. Also tour the historic wooden buildings in the town center, and visit the Matterhorn Museum to learn about the traditional local lifestyle and the human drama surrounding the majestic mountain that looms over the region.

Continue with your private driver to Lausanne and the beautiful Lake Geneva region for a stay at the elegant Beau-Rivage Palace—one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland—among lush parkland on the lakeshore. One day, take a private excursion in the surrounding region to visit Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland's most interesting castle, and the Lavaux wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 800-year-old terraced vineyards that skirt the edge of Lake Geneva and offer dramatic views of the Alps. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to enjoy exclusive activities such as private wine tasting and a private chocolate-making experience at a local confectioner. Another day, enjoy a private excursion to Emmental to visit a cheese-making facility, taste local cheeses and hike in the beautiful surrounding valley. Other nearby options include touring a renowned chocolate factory; visiting Chaplin's World, the former house and estate of Charlie Chaplin; exploring the Olympic Museum or the historic center of Lausanne; visiting the medieval hill town of Gruyeres; or spending time at the hotel's excellent spa, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Testimonials

Our family’s Switzerland trip was excellent. We enjoyed the variety of tours, destinations and activities. The meals were very special and the hotel views were incredible. Thank you for always paying attention to all of the details!
~ A.S., St. Petersburg, FL

Our Switzerland honeymoon was incredible! We received 5-star treatment everywhere we went. Other companies we’ve used aren’t even comparable to Artisans of Leisure.     
~ A.R., Nashville, TN

We had a wonderful trip to Switzerland and were so pleased with the arrangements you made in terms of hotels, guides, transportation, schedule and just everything. Thank you so much for taking our wishes and turning them into the trip we hoped for.
