Holidays with Friends in Vitznau


Unforgettable Group Holidays on    Lake Lucerne

The best thing about holidays with friends are the shared experiences. Vitznau offers numerous activities for fun in groups, from water sports on Lake Lucerne like wakeboarding, kitesurfing, and stand-up paddling, to mountain hiking trails on Rigi-Hochflue, to shopping trips in Lucerne.

Experience Vitznau Together

Group travelers can choose from a variety of excursions and activities in Vitznau’s idyllic location. Sporty groups start exploration tours and hikes directly from the center of Vitznau. In summer, SUP-Tours on Lake Lucerne  are especially fun with friends. In the winter, sledding and snowshoeing  snowshoeing are particularly popular with groups.

Boating on Lake Lucerne 

Sunshine and ships - the perfect combination for enjoying a beautiful summer's day on the crystal-clear water of Lake Lucerne. With motor boats, pedal boats, canoes, stand-up paddle boards, or hydro bikes — all available to rent at the boat rental shop Lüüchttürmli in neighboring Weggis - groups can explore the lake and surrounding mountains such as Rigi, Pilatus, Bürgenstock, and Seelisberg, undisturbed and at their own pace. 

Lucerne can be reached from Vitznau in just under an hour by public transport. The city offers numerous leisure activities and museums as well as a variety of stores and markets for shopping tours.

Sailing tours, with or without a skipper, are also available from Weggis and Lucerne.

Mountain Hike to the Hochflue Summit

The ideal hike for experienced mountaineers: at 1,698 meters above sea level, the peak of Rigi Hochflue in Canton Schwyz can only be attained by foot (unlike the other peaks of the Rigi massif – Scheidegg and Kulm – which can be reached with the mountain trains). Attention: this hike is varied and challenging - for example, there is a 10-meter high ladder to climb during the asset to the summit. Proper footwear and mountain experience are essential. But the effort is worth it: the thrill of summiting is accompanied by a 360-degree, panoramic view.
