Viking has unveiled a new three-night cruise extension in Switzerland’s stunning Lucerne region, allowing guests to experience the Viking Difference while enjoying the Alpine Backdrops of Lake Lucerne.
The Alpine Backdrops of Lake Lucerne extension can be added to the beginning or end of selected eight-day Rhine Getaway 2020 departures, sailing from Amsterdam to Basel or vice versa, and includes three nights in a First-Class hotel in Lucerne, four guided tours, four meals and all transfers, all the while fully escorted by a Viking Host.
Guided excursions include a walking tour of the old town of Lucerne, a scenic nature cruise of Lucerne’s famous lake, a trip up Mount Pilatus, one of the region’s spectacular peaks on a cogwheel train, a visit to Einsiedeln Benedictine Abbey, where guests will step inside the Chapel of our Lady to see its Black Madonna pilgrimage shrine, plus a tasting at a swiss chocolatier.
“With seamless connections and the services of a Viking Host throughout, our extension packages are designed to help guests maximise their time in Europe with additional days pre and post-cruise,” said Michelle Black, Viking’s Managing Director ANZ.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our range of extensions in Lucerne, a unique destination in Switzerland that’s best known for stunning natural landscapes as well as a vibrant culture and culinary scene,” she concluded.
Priced from $2,399 per person, this extension is available to book today.
