Panoramic Yacht Tour of Lake Lucerne

One of the most popular excursions in Lucerne is a boat trip on Lac des Quatre-Cantons (in English Lake Lucerne).

We preferred the tour of the lake on an elegant yacht of 49 meters instead of the culinary cruise on a steam boat steeped in nostalgia (this gourmet cruise along the water lasts about 4 hours).

Our 1 hour tour took us on the sparkling waters of the famous fjord-like lake, between pastures and steep slopes of the first Alpine summits.

We loved this “walk” through the beautiful bays of Lake Lucerne, surrounded by the majestic breath-taking mountain scenery, towering peaks, verdant forests and meadows and valleys.

This unique lake, which covers 114 square kilometres, is often referred to as the heart of Switzerland. It is surrounded by four wonderful cantons: Lucerne, Uri, Schwyz and Unterwald.

The price of this tour is CHF 25.00. An audio guide was at our disposal to learn everything about the landscape, the historical monuments and the sites around Lake Lucerne.

The excursion begins and ends on the jetty of Lake Lucerne’s Pier 7, opposite the Swan Place.

I hope you enjoyed this virtual tour as much as we did.

Lots of Love
