Urnersee-Uferweg

Urnersee-Uferweg

On water or on land - this is an inspiring route thanks to stunning views of the Urnersee lake, the southern arm of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne), embedded in a magnificent mountain panorama and surrounded by an opulent, generously renatured plant world.
The tour starts in Flüelen, a village offfering a wide range of excursions and lake cruises. Along the lakeside promenade you discover moorland, woodland and natural habitats for rare species of plants and animals. The route is lined with small wooden bridges, walkways and pebble beaches and the view of the nearby rugged mountains is breathtaking.

The stretch to Seedorf is part of the «Weg der Schweiz» (Swiss Path). Seedorf itself borders onto the nature reserve in the Reuss delta with picturesque natural and bathing islands. The entire route is dotted with secluded rest areas to take a break. The villages have boat stations or landing stages that are served by scheduled boats including the famous lake steamers.

It's well worth while spending time in Isleten, a small village belonging to the district of Bauen. Bauen enjoys a sheltered position in a bay and is known for it's mild climate. Palm trees fig trees and other exotic plants flourish here - a true oasis. And as the perfect end to your trip, we recommend a romantic cruise by lake steamer for your return to Flüelen.
