Besides interesting lectures and many other exciting items on the agenda, we have planned a Leisure day on Saturday, where you can choose between different activities: 

The canyoning tour in the Chli Schliere near Alpbach is one of the most beautiful and interesting canyoning tours in German-speaking Switzerland. We will try jumps of different heights and long slides, but there is always a way to  get around difficult spots by roping down, if one of the participants does not feel comfortable. The highest rappelling point is at 18 meters. The whole tour will take 2-3 hours.

Challenge your team spirit together with other participants. Here at the rafting tour through the Reuss river, the interaction of the group is required. After a short introduction by our guides, the 20 km tour leads us through beautiful scenery.

If you like to be out in nature, hiking is your activity. The hike leads us from Lucerne, along the Reuss river, to a viewpoint with a beautiful view over the city. In addition, experts will explain us the local flowers, herbs and their effects in medicine. We will gain insights into the fascinating world of plants and the treasures of nature will be revealed on this discovery tour.

If you are interested in culture and history, choose the Lucerne city tour and discover hidden alleys and treasures of Lucerne together with our guide. The tour starts in front of the Jesuit Church over the Chapel Bridge, leads through lesser known alleys in the old town and shows the city from a different angle.
