Continue the alpine experience as you transfer to the world’s first double-decker open-air CabriO cable car. The extrordiary 360-degree views offered by this cable car will leave you speechless for 7 minutes, and when you arrive at the top, you will feel like a lifetime has passed by! At the top of Mount Stanserhorn the views will not disappoint, you can see for nearly 100 kilometers, including views of three countries, and ten lakes in Switzerland. This excursion will definitely be a “high”light of your Swiss journey.
