Panoramic trails in the heart of Switzerland.

A hiking adventure in the heart of Switzerland. The high altitude hikes around Lake Lucerne are pearls worth discovering.

After crossing the lake basin you will climb the “queen of the Mountains” and dream of the spectacular mountain panoramas you’ve enjoyed during the last days.
