(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Lucerne, Andermatt

This private luxury tour focuses on the best of the Lake Lucerne region. It’s perfect for travelers wanting a classic Swiss combination of incredible mountain scenery, great cultural touring and top luxury hotels.

Begin with four nights in Lucerne, a picture-perfect Swiss town on the shore of Lake Lucerne. During flexible private touring with your own guide, explore the highlights of the Old Town according to your interests. Cross the landmark Chapel Bridge, a covered wooden bridge containing paintings of the city history, and walk the cobblestone streets to see Lucerne’s tiny squares and painted facades. Learn about the city’s history at the Musegg Wall, a portion of the old city walls, and walk along the tree-lined waterfront.

One day, enjoy a privately guided excursion to Mount Pilatus. Begin by cruising on beautiful Lake Lucerne with the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company, passing waterfront farmhouses clustered below high peaks.

Then, ride a cog railway up the steep slopes of 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, or hike among the rocky outcrops in the fresh mountain air.

Another day, take a privately guided excursion to Mount Rigi, the Queen of the Mountains immortalized by painter J.M.W. Turner and writer Mark Twain. Travel across Lake Lucerne, and then board a mountain railway to pass through fields and forests to reach the top of Mount Rigi for postcard views over the lake to the city of Lucerne.

Back in Lucerne, experience the past, present and future of transportation at the Swiss Museum of Transport. A wealth of interactive attractions (simulators, multimedia displays, virtual reality experiences and more than 3,000 vehicles) brings Swiss road, rail, water, air and space transport to life. The Swiss Chocolate Ride is another highlight of the museum.

During leisure time, browse local shops and boutiques such as Bucherer, one of Switzerland’s top luxury jewelry and watch purveyors. Artisans of Leisure will also make dining reservations at top restaurants in Lucerne.

Also visit the village of Engelberg and take the gondola and rotating cable car up Mount Titlis, one of the highest peaks in the region at more than 10,000 feet. Enjoy impressive views of high alpine peaks and glaciers, and then, depending on your interests, go sledding on a glacier, walk through a glacier cave, cross the Cliff Walk suspension bridge, go zip lining, visit the Benedictine monastery or tour a cheese factory.

Next, you will be transferred around Lake Lucerne and through dramatic Schollenen Gorge with views of the legendary Devil’s Bridge to Andermatt and the Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, Andermatt for a two-night stay.

Depending on your interests, enjoy private hiking among the majestic alpine peaks, a scenic drive into beautiful and historically significant Gotthard Pass, a mountain bike or road bike ride over spectacular alpine passes, a reserved tee time at a local 18-hole golf course surrounded by the Swiss Alps or a performance at the Andermatt Concert Hall.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can extend this tour with a journey on the Glacier Express train from Andermatt to Zermatt or St. Moritz among many other options.

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.
