Top Ten Switzerland Classic Adventures
|In training: up Mount Rigi (Swiss Tourism)|
If you have a yen to see the sunrise from a mountaintop, there's no better place to head than Mount Rigi (5,894 feet). Travelers have been trekking up here since the 19th century to do just that. A handy hotel a few feet from the summit means you can make your ascent the day before. It'll take about four hours to hike up (you can halve that if you take a mountain bike). The going isn't too tough, though it does get steeper at the end. Your reward will be a magnificent panorama of Alpine peaks crowding around the convoluted contours of Lake Lucerne.
