What you'll do

Release the shorelines, hoist the sail, steer the boat, navigate and maneuver - or simply sit back and admire the majestic panorama of Alpine peaks. How active or passive you want to be, is up to you, and nobody is judging you. We're sailing on the magnificent Lake Lucerne - it doesn't get much better than that. Experienced sailors and absolute first-timers are equally welcome. And I'm equally happy to operate the boat myself, or guide you gently so you can develop and safely practice your sea-skills. Our starting point is Marina Lützelau on the North shore of the lake. After a short safety briefing, we release the shorelines and set sail across the lake to the foot of the dramatic Bürgenstock, towering 700m (2300ft) above us. Care for a dip in the cool water? This could be our refreshing swimming stop. Hungry? we will savour fresh specialities from a local cheese factory and neighbouring farms. We continue towards Weggis, a serene, 900-year-old village on the slopes of Mount Rigi. Sailing gives us unique views of the village, often termed the 'Riviera' of central Switzerland. Our trip ends back where we started, at the Marina Lützelau. For your peace of mind: I've never seen anyone feeling sea-sick on the lake, not even those who suffer at sea. The cockpit is safe: accidentally falling overboard is impossible. Cancellation due to rain includes a full refund.

Tomer

Living on the North shore of Lake Lucerne since 2008, I go sailing often on my little boat - with or without guests - because I love it. As soon as I release the shorelines and set sail, nothing in the world matters except the wind, the waves and the crew. I'm also a savvy certified skipper with more than 12,000 nautical miles sailed in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. Having traveled and worked in more than 80 countries, I realize it's not Where I am or What I do there, but rather Who I am with that makes it so enriching and worthwhile.

What's included

Where you'll be

Marina Lützelau is our starting point. We will sail the West basin of Lake Lucerne and will have unique, unobstructed views of the surrounding villages and majestic Alpine peaks. As Hannah wrote in her review: "Lake Lucerne is beautiful from the shore but experiencing it by boat is another level of breathtaking" - so make sure your camera is ready and fully charged. In addition to natural beauty, the area is rich with Swiss history and culture.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 6 and up can attend. We've never had problems of sea sickness on the lake, but guests should be generally fit and able to step into and out of the boat unassisted. Ability to swim is required only for those who wish to jump in the…

More tips

Boat etiquette: if you're not having fun, you're not doing it right. Sailing in the rain is no fun, and unsafe, so in case of unfavourable forecast 24h in advance I will cancel with a full refund.
