Tour Operator

Lake Lucerne is conveniently located in the very heart of Switzerland and is anchored as a destination by the world famous city of Lucerne. From there, our historic steamboats or modern motor vessels sail to nearby excursion peaks like Mount Rigi or Mount Pilatus, providing ideal connections to the many different mountain railways, funiculars and aerial cableways. Reach some of the most significant and beautiful cultural sights in Switzerland, like the Rütli meadow, on one of our boats and combine the tranquility of the lake with the awe-inspiring power of the towering Alps.

As the largest shipping company in Switzerland, we operate a high quality fleet that is renown for its comfortable amenities and excellent onboard catering. From short sails to all day itineraries using multiple modes of transport, we will be happy to advise you on how you can get the most out of your visit to Central Switzerland and enjoy all facets of our remarkable landscape. We hope that this site will therefore enhance your interest and aid your planning.
