Lucerne’s Lakes and Mountains
Known as the pearl of Switzerland, Lucerne sits proudly on its lake of the same name (Vierwaldstattersee to the locals) and is perfectly poised at the foot of the Swiss-German part of the Alps. As you look out over this magnificent stretch of water, steamers gently cut through the alpine blue water, linking Lucerne to the surrounding lakeside villages. Jagged mountain peaks, including Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus, dominate the skyline, framing this beautiful area perfectly.
If you are an enthusiast of different modes of transport and mountain views, this region is perfect for you. Macs Adventure has created trips for you that highlight the best hand-picked accommodations and some of the most memorable walks in the region. We have been sending guests to Lucerne since 2008 and can give you great tips and advice to help enhance your experience.
Spend a long weekend in the region on our Lucerne's Lakes and Mountains Short Break, or if you have more time, embark on our week-long Lucerne's Lakes and Mountains tour. Both take advantage of the well-connected regional travel by train, boat and cable car on this immersive Swiss experience. Get away from the tourist hotspots as on the trails, your only company will be a few locals and some Swiss Alpine cows. This is classic walking at its very best, and you will feel fully engaged in this glorious area of Switzerland by the time you depart.
