Hi KL,

It can be done if you don't mind a full day and leaving early. I would suggest to start with Mount Titlis, unless the weather forecast of that day tells you otherwise. You can find all schedules in the timetable.

There will be day light until 9:30 PM, but do check the timetable as not all modes of transport might be available that late. Definitely do Rigi last as there are more evening opportunities there.

<<"can I also cover Mount Riji on the same day">>

Keep an eye on the schedules for the Rigi. They last trains down do not run very late at night.

Use the timetable.

Starting point would be Rigi Kulm, destination at bottom either Vitznau, Weggis or Arth- Goldau.

PS - if you spell it Riji, the time table will get confused. Riji is an island near to Fiji in the South Pacific, Swiss trains do not run there. ;-)

The correct spelling is Rigi.
