Vitznau as Departure Point for SUP-Tours
From Vitznau there are two primary ways to start a stand up paddleboard tour. On the coastal route towards Gersau, a small, charming village on the southern slope of the Rigi, paddlers experience a Mediterranean flair. The coast between Vitznau and Gersau is steep and offers dramatic views of the varied landscape of the Rigi southern slopes.
In the opposite direction, the path leads from Vitznau along the Lucerne Riviera to Weggis. The sun-drenched town on the southern flank of the Rigi has an attractive lake promenade with many fine restaurants. From the SUP you can enjoy unobstructed views of Lake Lucerne and the prominent Bürgenstock cliff with the unique Bürgenstock elevator.
Trying Out the Stand Up Paddleboard
Even beginners can paddle across Lake Lucerne after a short time and look forward to an active day on the water or enjoying the sunset. The SUP rental Villa Kapellmatt offers introductory courses during the season on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for CHF 49 per person.
