Secret Switzerland with Swisspecial

Secret Switzerland with Swisspecial


Pascal Rast of Swisspecial is one of my favorite private guides anywhere. After a corporate career in biotech, he parlayed his off duty passions of mountaineering and exploring Switzerland's great outdoors into a luxury private guiding company, Swisspecial. He and his handpicked private guides design bespoke full day and half day experiences in the Lake Lucerne area for visitors, from snow cat adventures in winter, with a 4-course lunch in a place only accessible by snow cat and winter wonderland adventures and snowy hiking in winter to scenic alpine roads, cheese making at family farms accessible only by private cable car in summer, wine tasting, chocolate making, and more. You're guaranteed not to see any other foreign tourists in any of the remote areas Pascal takes you to.

We were fortunate to experience a morning with Pascal, following our stay at the Park Hotel Vitznau, on the shores of Lake Lucerne. Here are some photos of our memorable time with him, from the ferry we took across Lake Lucerne to a small family cheese maker in the alps, to a scenic reservoir with a snowy mountain backdrop.
