The tour off-season (Oct-May) takes you from Basel to Luzern and then just 10 minutes outside the city center to Kriens, where you travel by panoramic aerial cableway on a scenic ride to Mt. Pilatus.
Numerous attractions and two restaurants await you on Mount Pilatus. Or enjoy the time on the large viewing terrace.
After returning from Mt. Pilatus, enjoy the tranquility of the water and the grandeur of the mountains on a one hour catamaran lake cruise from Luzern to Kehrsiten and back to Luzern.
