June to October Ibex Safari

Experience the ibexes on the Pilatus close up. These daring climbers have lived on Lucerne’s local mountain for over 50 years. Observing the colony is an unforgettable and impressive experience. Along the way, local and experienced game wardens explain fauna and flora, and in particular the Pilatus ibex colony.

Experiencing ibexes up close

The ibexes on the Pilatus are powerful and impressive. The colony has been living on the mountain for years, a peaceful coexistence of people and animals. In particular in the evening and early morning the mountain belongs to the animals. It is magical to see how agile the ibexes move about. The ensuing four-course meal will give you plenty of time to let the impressions settle and flow into your dreams when going to bed at the Hotel Bellevue or Hotel Pilatus-Kulm***Superior.
