Start your journey at 7:45am with your friendly and professional guide. Enjoy a 40-minute train ride through scenic farmland, which brings you to the historic resort town of Engelberg (Angel Mountain). Hop on a bus to the end of the valley. Now board a cable car for a breathtaking ascent up to 1™850 m/6™070 ft and into the midst of snow-capped peaks and glaciers towering a further 1™000m/3™000 ft above you.

Start your hike on a circular trail with a vista point offering the best view over the valley and the north face of Mt Titlis, the highest mountain peak in the area(40 mins). Continue hiking on the plateau trail overlooking the valley with views to the surrounding high mountain peaks. As the path narrows you start descending to Abnet. Depending on fitness levels, interest and ability, either take a rustic cable car ride down to the lunch stop, or continue on foot.

Continuing on foot, pass the thundering Stauber waterfall and hear the intriguing legend of why Canton Uri has a bull's head on its cantonal flag. Hike further into the valley through green pastures and hear the rush of mountain streams and clanking of cow bells. Enjoy a 1-hour lunch at Staefeli at a traditional alpine farm inn that offers homemade specialties (Tip - bring cash not credit cards).

After lunch, gently descend on a 1½ hour hike along a path into the tree line and then through forest with a glacier stream keeping you company until you reach the cable car station again. The local bus returns you to Engelberg (last departure at 5pm) with time left to check out the show cheese-maker in the old monastery buildings or wander through the pretty village before taking the train back to Lucerne (5pm - 6pm).
