From Zurich: Full-Day Mount Stanserhorn Discovery Tour

1. From Zurich: Full-Day Mount Stanserhorn Discovery Tour

On this full-day tour you will discover the magnificent Mount Stanserhorn in the heart of the stunning Swiss countryside. From Zürich you will be taken on a scenic coach journey to Lucerne through the beautiful countryside via the Albis Pass and along the shores of the Lake Lucerne.  Enjoy some time at leisure to explore the Old Town before continuing on to Stans, where you will board the vintage funicular train for an unforgettable ride through blooming meadows to the valley station of the world’s first CabriO cable car. This latest master piece of Swiss engineering is a unique open top aerial cable car which takes you up to Mount Stanserhorn (6,230 feet/1,900 meters). The unimpaired view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola is truly memorable. On the top of the mountain, a magnificent panoramic view over ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries awaits you. Take the short hike to the peak and visit the marmot park to watch these cute animals play, and have the option of sampling a typically Swiss dish in the revolving Rondorama restaurant. After descending to Stans, you will take the public train back to Lucerne for some additional time in this lovely city before taking the coach back to Zurich in the evening.

Soar like a bird, surrounded by stunning views of Lucerne, Engelberg, and Emmetten. Feel the freedom of the wind as your pilot takes you on an experience like never before.

Enjoyed the drive to Lucerne through the villages rather than the highway, time in Lucerne and the best bit was the ascent and descent to Stanserhorn and the time up on top of the mountain.

We loved every moment of it. The the ride in As the cabrio cable car was so magnificent and being able to spend time on the summit was so just amazing. Definitely recommend.

Jorge is an excellent guide, we will eat some tacos in his honor. Very good recommendations and great person
