Map / Mount Rigi South Side Safari

Discover the south side of mount Rigi in many different ways.

The Mount Rigi South Side Safari is the perfect choice for a day trip with the whole family.

On your individual round trip on the south side of the Rigi you have five means of transport at your disposal and therefore many hiking combination possibilities. Bus, boat, cog railway, cable car and minibus make travelling easier and protect tired hiking calves. The numerous playgrounds and barbecue areas are ideal for a short break from hiking and make the Rigi South Side Safari a very special family experience.
