Technically speaking, the Rigi Tour is not too demanding, but more than 42 kilometers in distance and 1,700 meters in altitude difference are no laughing matter. In other words, if you want to enjoy the beauty of the region to the fullest, you need endurance, or else the tour can turn into an arduous journey.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
