  • Luzern-Fluelen-St. Gotthard-Locarno/Lugano

    The William Tell Express links German-speaking Central Switzerland with Italian-speaking Ticino.

    The tour starts in Lucerne or Locarno. When travelling from Lucerne you’ll board a nostalgic paddle steamer for a 3-hour cruise on Lake Lucerne and enjoy a gourmet meal.

    At Fluelen, passengers board an air-conditioned panoramic train and travel through the steep ravines and precipitous cliffs of the Reuss Valley, passing the historic Gotthard railway tunnel. On the south side, many breath-taking bridges are crossed, passing by charming villages down the valley towards Lugano or Locarno. When starting travel from Locarno, travel is the reverse of Lucerne.
