Lake Lucerne, known locally as the ‘Vierwaldstättersee’ – the lake of four cantons - is a region steeped in history and romance. Local legend tells the tale of William Tell and his part in Switzerland’s struggle for independence. It is on this beautiful lake that the world’s largest fleet of magnificently restored nostalgic paddle steamers operates the ‘William Tell Express’. This holiday visits 3 of Switzerland’s contrasting regions – the mountains of the Bernese Oberland, the tranquil
waters of Lake Lucerne, and the sunny southern canton of Ticino near the Italian border. Your ‘Wilheim Tell Express’ journey on the historic paddle steamer takes you from the lakeside resorts of Weggis or Vitznau to Fluelen, on the southern shore of Lake Lucerne. You will have lunch as you cruise and a commentary will explain the main points of interest along the way. From Fluelen, your journey continues on ‘William Tell Express’ panoramic train, which carries you through deep ravines
and dramatic mountains to the sun-drenched climes of the Italian-speaking lakeside resorts of Locarno or Lugano.
