  • Mt Rigi Day Trip

    Locals agree that Mt Rigi is one of Switzerland’s most favorite places for hiking

    Mount Rigi, also known as the “Queen of the Mountains”, is THE mountain peak where Swiss alpine tourism began over 200 years ago. It may not be as high as its opposite peak, Mt Pilatus, but a round trip to the summit of Mt Rigi and a hike along its ridge path with spectacular views is always worth the trip.

    Highlights of this tour:

    • 2-3 hours of easy walking on marked trails with panoramic views over the Alps and lakes
    • Light outdoor grill lunch (Vegetarians – please warn us in advance!)
    • 4 types of public transportation – local train, cogwheel railway, aerial cableway and and boat
    • Option to include time at the Rigi Kaltbad Mineral Spa Bath indoor/outdoor facilities

    The Hike

    This is an easy to moderate 2-1/2 to 3 hour hike on mountain paths and trails, alpine meadows, rocky ridge path
