photographic Hike in Rigi Kaltbad

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Never say never. We didn´t expect any last minute changes, but unfortunately we couldn´t avoid those, an apology about it to everyone who has already signed up. We contacted Stoos tourism to confirm the route marking for Stoos - Fronalpstock, instead, we were firmly instructed not to take the hike due to plenty of snow still on ground. So, for the sake of safety, we had to come up with another route for the hike. Life is full of surprises ;)

Our new stage will be the majestic Rigi! The start will be Rigi Kaltbad and the hike will finish in Brunnen. According to the online tourist information the trail is free of snow.

The hike from Rigi- Kaltbad to the Urmiberg is one of the prettiest and most popular ones. One can glean up to four lakes simultaneously, as well as a splendid alpine panorama. At the end of your hike you can sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic cable car ride down to Urmiberg.

The hike is 12 km, approx. 4,5 h, but please add an hour for lunch and extra time for taking some mind-blowing pictures. Full trail description under the following link:

http://www.wvrt.ch/en/sport-wandern/wandern/rigi-kaltbad-brunnen

We will take the ship (toward Fluelen) from Luzern at 8:12 am, arriving to Weggis 8:53 from where we take the Luftseilbahn at 9:20 up to Rigi Kaltbad arriving there at 9:30. Please note that since we are taking the ship instead of the train, we will meet at the ticket sales booth for the ship tickets, which is opposite of the main entrance of the Luzern train station, on the square that opens in front of the train station.

To bring along:

· Camera and lenses OR a lot of patience and a beautiful smile if you are not a photographer J

· Water/something to drink/eat for a picnic (there are also restaurants along the way)

· Hike boots

· Sun protection and sun glasses

· Rain coat or windstopper

We hope most of you will still be able to participate and will be very happy about your flexibility :)

    The hike in Kaltbad was very beautiful: being able to hike with a wonderful panorama and interesting people was great. It was also a precious occasion to deepen and share photography experiences and personal knowledge!

    Hi all, here you find the gps track that I recorded during the hike. You can use it to view the hike on google earth or other software.

    Hi! I will also meet you in Brunnen. I've never been there before - should we decide on a meeting place or do you think we will be easy enough to spot?
    See you Saturday!

      Hi Christine, those coming from LU need to buy tickets on arrival. If you wish, you can buy beforehand, the return will be from Fronalpstock. Looking forward to the adventure as well :)

    I live in Baden and I will come directly to Brunnen. I will arrive there at 9:04, at the same time you will arrive from Luzern. Eventually I can write in private my mobile number to one of the organizers, in case of need. See all of you on Saturday!

    Hello photographers! Weather for Saturday looks lovely, so looking forward to taking some great pictures with you. if your plans have changed or you are not sure that you will be able to join, please cancel, there are even two on the waiting list. It will also make life easier for Francesca and me to have an idea who is coming :) See you soon!!

    Dear photographers, please note that neither Francesca nor I are professional photographers. The idea is to have fun and be inspired in a like-minded company :)
