Alpine Route Tour Day 5: Fluhli -> Beckenried

A break from climbing today, but not until we get over the Glaubenbuelen pass. After breakfast, we’ve got another steep 600 meters and then it’s all down hill. But let’s not hurry. Our descent is going to give you some incredible views of Lake Sarnen and beyond. Once down the mountain, we’ll spend most of the day on flat lake roads. We’ll stop on Lake Sarnen for lunch and then make our way as a group to the town of Stans.

Once in Stans, we’re only 10 kilometers from our overnight in Beckenried.
For those of you who would like to continue riding, you can ride 25 kilometers further afield to the resort town of Engleberg before taking the train back to Stans.
Otherwise, get to Beckenried and enjoy your hotel on the lake: there's a beach with a nice bar right outside. Or, take the gondola up from Beckenried to Klewenalp for some amazing views of Lake Luzern. The lift is down the road 800 meters and leaves every 20 minutes.

Meet back at the hotel for drinks on the beach at 7 O’clock. We’ll likely have had some different adventures that we’ll want to share. Supper is on the terrasse overlooking Lake Lucerne.
